Mellow as Opposed to Thrashy

Nick Cave is one of those artists, like Neil Young, who can do both mellow and thrashy..
Mrs CC only  really likes the mellow stuff. Me, I can do both mellow and thrashy

There are only 4 Nick Cave albums on the shelves (there clearly should be more)  The Boatman's Call and Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus acquired by Mrs CC and The Best of and Let Love In acquired by yours truly.

The Boatman's Call is very much at the mellow end of the spectrum.. Whereas the music is mellow, the lyrics are not always so
I make no apologies for featuring the two best known songs on the album.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Into My Arms

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - (Are You) The One That I've Been Waiting For?


  1. Henry's Dream is a must. Make that your next Cave purchase.

  2. Will keep my eyes open
    Not an act I have ever seen in a charity shop unfortunately

  3. I reckon you're pretty safe picking up any Nick Cave album, although, as you say, he's hardly a charity shop staple.
