The Many Faces Of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - This Is Fake DIY

Ahead of the re-issue of three Bad Seeds albums, Tom Baker takes a look at Nick Cave's back catalogue.

Nick Cave is perhaps Australia's greatest, darkest export - yes, even more so than Neighbours. A singular, idiosyncratic rock god, Cave is a cavern-deep-voiced, stony-faced, Old Testament preacher from Warracknabeal, Australia (who now lives in Brighton). He is unlike any other front man in music. Even the most earnest pale in comparison to the way Cave - and his band, The Bad Seeds - commits so fully to his howling sermons on the end of the world, the dark parts of The Bible, love, and murder, in a way that convinces you he's lead the most interesting life of anyone, ever. Or he's read the most, anyway.

Inspired variously by garage rock, Milton and Lou Reed, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds have put out fourteen albums over the course of the past thirty years. And along the way there's been a whole lot of side-projects, covers, and even film scores.

How are you meant to find the good stuff, the Promised Land, amidst this intimidating mountain of material? You need a map. And, luckily for you, we here at DIY are accomplished musical cartographers. So, let us introduce you to the many-faced demon that is Nick Cave...

ALBUM BIO: Dinosaur Jr. – I Bet On Sky (out 14 September 2012) [Liberator]

Originally posted on moshroom.com.au - 31 July 2012



“I Bet on Sky”, due for release in Australia on September 14th, is the third Dinosaur Jr. album since the original trio – J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph – reformed in 2005. It marks the band’s 10th studio album since their debut on Homestead Records in 1985. The trio has taken everything they’ve learned from the various projects they tackled over the years, and poured it directly into their current mix. J’s guitar approaches some of its most unhinged playing here – this is head-bobbing riff-romance at the apex. Lou’s basswork has more melody now as well, although his two songs on “I Bet on Sky” retain the jagged rhythmic edge that has so often marked his work. And Murph…well, he still pounds the drums as hard and as strong as a pro wrestler, with deceptively simple structures that manage to interweave themselves perfectly with his bandmates’ melodic explosions.

There is nothing quite like a Dinosaur Jr. album. The best ones are always recognisable from the first notes. And even though J tries to trip us up by smearing “Don’t Pretend You Didn’t Know” with keyboards, it’s clear from the moment he starts his vocals that this is the one and only Dinosaur Jr.

“I Bet On Sky”, their first album since 2009′s “Farm”, is a true and worthy addition to the Dinosaur Jr. discography, brilliantly imprinted with the trio’s magical equation. For a combo that began as anomalous fusion of hardcore punk and pop influences, Dinosaur Jr. have proven themselves to be unlikely masters of the long game.

Deep Elm Records

About Deep Elm Records

Now with nearly 200 releases in its discography, fiercely independent Deep Elm Records continues to build a better label - one that operates for glory, not gold. We see our label being about people coming together, meeting, singing and sharing that experience with each other...those are the times that we remember forever. It's about the power of music and the bands that create it. Founded on respect for music and the creative process, a goal of discovering new artists and undying integrity in everything we do, Deep Elm strives to further its reputation as one of the world's most reliable sources of quality independent recordings. A small but dedicated team provide all label services on an in-house basis including worldwide promotion, marketing, licensing, publicity, design and all internet-related operations. We are 100% Independent.

Deep Elm is responsible for seminal releases by The Appleseed Cast, Carly Comando, Moving Mountains, Nada Surf, Latterman, Benton Falls, 500 Miles To Memphis and most recently Accents, Athletics, Dorena, Moonlit Sailor, Les Sages, This Drama, The Lions Rampant and many more. Deep Elm is also known for its two multi-volume, exclusive compilation series: This Is Indie Rock and The Emo Diaries featuring Jimmy Eat World, Annuals, Further Seems Forever, Samiam, Movielife, The Forecast and 200+ other incredible bands.

In 2012, Deep Elm celebrates its 17 year anniversary as an independently owned and operated record label. Deep Elm is part of a threatened breed of "true independents" that exist for the love of music. Most so-called "indie labels" are, in fact, funded and distributed by major record labels and their affiliates. Not Deep Elm. On a completely self-sufficient basis and without major label support or distribution, Deep Elm competes in an industry dominated by corporate giants. We put out the records that move us and support the bands we love. So if you are a fan, please support...as we survive on word of mouth. Don't forget the songs that make you smile, and the songs that make you cry. Let's all make sure these bands will continue to be there when you need them...

Indie 'Til Death...And We Mean It.

Upcoming Science Fiction and Fantasy Movies That Aren't Remakes, Sequels or Prequels

Originally posted on io9 - 27 June 2012 | Written By: Charlie Jane Anders

A rather lengthy list of Sci-Fi & Fantasy flicks in various stages of development that aren't sequels, prequels, remakes, reboots or reimaginings of existing movies, however a fairly large number are adaptations from other sources (books, graphic novels, comics, etc) so it's by no means a list of purely original properties.

I've added in the IMDb links where possible, and marked those I'm personally most excited about with my Mii .
They're rebooting Spider-Man. They're remaking Total Recall. Sometimes, when you're in the middle of summer movie craziness, it can seem like every movie is based on an already-existing movie. But that's not really true — there are actually tons of genre movies in development that are new concepts, at least as far as the movies go. Some of them have already finished filming, while others will never get made.
