  • THE DRAG CITY NEWSLETTER JULY-AUGUST 2013!!!!!!!!

    THE MILK OF HUMAN KINDA-TITS

    Whoa! Time is moving ON. Two weeks ago, Drag City dropped the best batch of new releases July (2013) will ever see: Andy Kaufman, Bitchin Bajas, White Fence, Scraper and Paula, a virtual all-night party of entertainments that'll take you up and down and through tomorrow and into the next day...Do we do this out of generosity? Sure! But we're only human. We also do it out of greed. We're only human! And humans have built machines that dispense toys, treats, and information, all in exchange for something in return. This is savagery! We've built proprietarial hunger into mechanical structures as a form of mirroring our own worst needs. Now those machines have us on drip-feed! Without those machines, how would we live? You may think that we're aping tired old T3 tropes, but check it out - we're talking about the music business here!…

  • A day in the life of Nick Cave

    20,000 Days on Earth, a documentary about the singer by the artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, creates a fictionalised 24 hours in his life in which he watches Scarface with his 12-year-old sons and drives Ray Winstone along Brighton seafront

    I am sitting in a small estate car, which is tailing a black 1980s Jaguar XJ, in which Nick Cave is pretending to chauffeur Ray Winstone along Brighton seafront, eavesdropping on their conversation via a listening device. They are supposed to be discussing the transformative possibilities offered a rock star as opposed to those offered an actor – Cave has previously expressed the opinion that, unlike an actor, a rock star can never truly remove the mask they have created for themselves, even when offstage – but the conversation seems to have gone slightly off-piste. It has shifted from Cave's early career in Melbourne ("You never wrote a…

    Years before Mick Turner and Jim White teamed up with violinist Warren Ellis to become instrumental post-rock trio Dirty Three, the pair of Australian musicians punked it up in their '80s project Venom P. Stinger. If you missed out on grabbing any of their records back in the day, you're in luck: Drag City serves up a series of reissues August 20. First off, the label is set to release four of the outfit's vinyl releases on freshly pressed wax. This includes their 1986 debut LP Meet My Friend Venom, the "Walking About"/"26 Milligrams" 7-inch from 1988, 1990's What's Yours Is...Read More

  • Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Push the Sky Away – review

    (Bad Seed Ltd)

    For some Nick Cave aficionados, the Bad Seeds were never the same after guitarist Blixa Bargeld left in 2003 to spend more time with his German industrial noise outfit. Even before a single note of this 15th Bad Seeds album is played, others will shake their heads, rueing the day in 2009 when guitarist Mick Harvey – probably the very longest-serving of Cave's henchmen – flew the coop. The cast that revolves around Cave is almost as much of a lopsided whirligig as those satellites orbiting Neil Young, with lifers, safe pairs of hands, specialists and vibes men coming forwards or moving retrograde. This particular Bad Seeds record – spacious, humid, dimensional – is as much the product of multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis and his weather-vane aesthetic as it is of Cave himself.
