Like many of you, we've been Nick Cave fans for a long time. For me personally, it began in my early 20's when I started dating somebody in the local punk scene and quickly got thrown into a heavy post-punk / 80's musical phase (that I'm still in in a real way, just not as entranced as when I was back then). I would stay up all night watching videos of goths dancing at the Bat Cave, imitating the Ian Curtis Epilepsy Dance as I listened to Transmission, and sewing patches on my favourite black denim. There's one band that I really fell in love with during this time, and our romance fortunately lasted much longer than my punk-rock date. They were an Australian band called the Birthday Party (previously known as the Boys Next Door), and Nick Cave led the group with his deep dark vocals. Their album Door Door was played on repeat for months and is still one of my favourites. Check them out for yourself below, and keep reading for contest details!
Our admiration for Nick Cave as an artist and love for his Southern Gothic sound continues today, and we couldn't be more into the new Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album "Skeleton Tree". About the record, which is riddled with personal grief and heartache, Rolling Stone says "Here is the dean of literary gothic song-craft, a master of wordplay, symbolism and irony, baring his soul like never before."
