Seeds of discontent.The debut LP from these four Bad Seeds erases all fears about the dreaded “side project”. A raw and blasted, punkily brief and thrillingly abrasive beast, it reveals a very different side to Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos. Gone is the emphasis on formal narrative structure and heightened theatrics, replaced with texture, noise, physicality, atmospherics and dashes of mordant humour. Echoes of Suicide and The Stooges abound, but this is not a bunch of old blokes looking to recapture their youth; rather, Grinderman sounds like a freshly hewn and rudely vigorous chunk of leftfield rock.
Grinderman – Grinderman, released 05 March 07 on Mute.
