Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! (2008)

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! (2008)
Mp3 @ 320 kbps / 78 MB

The title track of the fourteenth studio album from And transports the biblical character of the title to contemporary New York.

It was bad enough having been interred in a fucking tomb, but having then been thrown into the belly of that supremely bizarre city, little lazy Lazzy would soon be longing again for death’s cold sweet fingers!!

Produced by Nick Cave the Bad Seeds and Nick Launay, this new album was recorded in London over the summer of 2007 at State of the Ark studios, and mixed at Mark Knopfler’s British Grove. Luckily, however, Knopfler is nowhere to be found on this album!

“All of us feel we have done something really different. Musically there’s just stuff you’ve never heard before. To be honest it’s an unmitigated masterpiece.”

-Nick Cave

This opus features the majority of the usual Seeds retrobates, including the Bad Seeds musical helmsman , Dirty Three violinist (who has seemingly become a very important figure in the direction of the Seeds music across recent albums) and a provides a warm welcome back to organist/pianist Conway Savage.

The album also features Thomas Wydler on drums and percussion, Martyn Casey on bass, Jim Sclavunos on drums, percussion and vocals, and James Johnston on guitar and organ.


On this record Cave has, for the most part, closed the lid on his piano – in fact he wrote and recorded most of these songs on the organ (the musical instrument … not his own organ!). Also Bad Seeds /
Dirty Three violinist Ellis to a great extent here has swapped his trademark instrument for guitar, 12-string lute (WTF!) and electric mandolin.

In my view, Cave albums after the supreme “The Boatman’s Call“, despite featuring moments of greatness, when considered as complete works sadly fell far short of what they might perhaps have been. However, this magnum (as in the weapon favoured by Unclean Harry?) opus represents a real return to form indeed!! I fucking love it!

‘Dig!!’ at times displays a rawer, more garage, if not punk, sound than recent outings – closer to Cave’s acclaimed 2007 side-project Grinderman or indeed, the early Bad Seeds albums (or even at times the post-punk wildness of the Birthday Party). However, the music can be quieter too, more meditative, when it needs to be. Cave’s supreme, complex – and often hilarious – lyrical wordplay and narratives find a perfect fuck-buddy in the various music styles laid out here.

The spirits of John Lee Hooker, Velvet Underground, Iggy, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, satanic orgies and Church Hymns breath oceans of vigour into this wonderful album. Enough to resurrect an entombed corpse (well, a zombie at least!)

Welcome back Mr Lazarus! Where the fuck ya been?

More news from nowhere

And it’s strange indeed

And it’s getting stranger every day

As an aside, I must take issue with the moment of madness where Cave exclaims Bukowski was a jerk! Berryman was best!”. Let’s put it down to a momentary lapse of reason! Buk may have sometimes been an asshole, but so what! His writing, across many idioms, was peerless. Unlike Berryman, the work of Bukowski has always been looked down upon by Academia wankers. Anyone who has really read enough of Buk’s work knows better! Berryman had indeed some great moments, but looking at his overall output, his work falls well short of Bukowski’s.
