Grinderman vs. APTBS vs. Unkle

by juicyfrog

diving back into Grinderman 2 RMX – an album realeased by Grinderman in 2012, two years after the release of the original Grinderman 2 by the Mini Seeds – this side-project of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds was a thrilling example of beautiful wildness.

at the personal department Mr. Nick Cave (guitar, vocals, piano), Mr. Warren Ellis (tenor guitar, violin, viola, mandolin, backing vocals), Mr. Martyn P. Casey (bass, guitar, backing vocals) and Mr. Jim Sclavunos (drums, backing vocals) officiated as a zestful, delicious garage rock team.

with a repertoire made of two unique albums soberly called Grinderman and Grinderman 2, the project brought a touch of fresh air to Nick Cave and reminded Seeds’ enthusiasts as well that this sumptuous writer gentleman was not only the fantastic poet, composer and singer of The Bad Seeds, but beforehand a terrific awaken guitarist. for the occasion, Warren Ellis armed himself with a tenor guitar and a violin and a viola and a mandolin, Jim Sclavunos took over his usual drumming job from the Bad Seeds and Martyn P. Casey perpetuated his guitar and bass collection.

et voilà, Grinderman blessed us with two musical nuggets before taking their leave.
breaking up after an impeccable discography, what a perfect decision.

from Grinderman 2 the frog enjoyed quite a lot the punchy Worm Tamer, which original was already a handsome noise monument, especially at his best in this RAK Session

in Grinderman 2 RMX, the (non-sleeping) beauty was revisited by the excellent U.N.K.L.E, which electronic psychedelia enlightened this pure rocking heavenliness,

but also by the amazing A Place To Bury Strangers, who solemnized it with a typical and electrifying diabolical guitar sound

this is highly enjoyable isn’t it?
