Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue & The Pogues – Death is not the End

A very interesting star studded cover of Bob Dylan’s great “Death is not the End”, originally from his much maligned, but actually decent 1988 LP Down in the Groove.

‘Death Is Not The End’ was covered by Nick Cave – an artist who has always been heavily influenced by Bob Dylan – with the Bad Seeds in 1996 on the Murder Ballads LP.

The Cave version featured several vocalists, such as Anita Lane, Kylie Minogue, PJ Harvey, and Shane McGowan, including Nick Cave himself and Bad Seeds drummer Thomas Wydler and guitarist Blixa Bargeld.

They each sing a verse – strangely the only song the only song on Murder Ballads where an actual death does not occur!

Death is not the End

When you’re sad and when you’re lonely and you haven’t got a friend
Just remember that death is not the end
And all that you’ve held sacred, falls down and does not mend
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

When you’re standing at the crossroads that you cannot comprehend
Just remember that death is not the end
And all your dreams have vanished and you don’t know what’s up the bend
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

When the storm clouds gather ’round you, and heavy rains descend
Just remember that death is not the end
And there’s no one there to comfort you, with a helpin’ hand to lend
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

Oh, the tree of life is growing
Where the spirit never dies
And the bright light of salvation shines
In dark and empty skies

When the cities are on fire with the burning flesh of men
Just remember that death is not the end
And you search in vain to find just one law abiding citizen
Just remember that death is not the end
Not the end, not the end
Just remember that death is not the end

– Bob Dylan, 1988

Blixa Bargeld’s Execution of Precious Memories Mixes Global Lineage with Local DNA


EPMpromophoto2.low.1.jpg

Blixa Bargeld’s Execution of Precious Memories Mixes Global Lineage with Local DNA

Einstürzende Neubauten founder and former Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds guitarist Blixa Bargeld along with collaborators and costars Nanos Operetta and Yannis Adoniou’s KUNST-STOFF collect over 300 pages of text and memories gleaned from locally distributed surveys and questionnaires as basis for show’s libretto

SF debut is first US performance since Memories originated in Berlin and follows culture specific runs in Tokyo, Buenos Aires, Stockholm, London, New Delhi and Krakow; performances set to run November 19-23 at Project Artaud Theater; Sunday’s Performance at 7pm, all others at 8pm

San Francisco, November, 2008 Blixa Bargeld’s collaboration and performance with new music ensemble Nanos Operetta and award-winning choreographer, filmmaker and artistic director of KUNST-STOFF, Yannis Adoniou shifted to the rehearsal stage afer pulling 300 pages of text from locally distributed surveys and questionnaires. The 300 pages will be thinned in order to synthesize the libretto for the performances. SF-based new music ensemble Nanos Operetta not only contributes original music to the score, but the 7-piece ensemble will perform live along with Bargeld and Yannis Adoniou’s KUNST-STOFF, who will also supply choreography.

This is the US debut of Bargeld’s Execution of Precious Memories. Performances of this project that have enjoyed culture-specific runs in 9 cities since it’s debut in Berlin circa 1994.

Performances are scheduled for Project Artaud Theater, located at 450 Florida Street, San Francisco CA 94110, November 19-23 at 8pm (Excpet Sunday at 7pm)

Tickets are $20.00 and available at Brownpapertickets.com; links to ticket purchase also on kunst-stoff.org; also available by phone at 415-863-9834

Bargeld’s work has been called everything from dramatic, plaintive and hypnotic, to bleak, theatrical, rousing, and even ominous. His life long leadership of Einstürzende Neubauten has strongly influenced Nine Inch Nails, Marliyn Manson, Depeche Mode and the evolution of Industrial Music.

“This collaboration has been a longtime desire for Nanos,” say Nanos Operetta’s Ali Tabatabai. “Blixa Bargeld is a true maverick and an instinctual idealist who follows his creative hallucinations and musical compulsions without fear of consequence; his sonic and textual investigations have informed virtually all of Nanos Operetta’s work.”

Execution of Precious Memories is a worldwide work that began in Berlin in 1994. Since then it has been performed in culture specific performances in 9 other cities. This is the first performance in US—and the first performance period—since 2001. When asked about the collaboration, Adoniou explains that “Blixa is not only an exceptional musician but also a conceptual guru,” before adding, “It is a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to finally work with him.”

Dancers performing are Marina Fukushima, John Mercke, Jennifer Meek, Andrew Ward, Suzanne Lappas and Justin Andrews.

Memories collects anonymous recollections from individuals living in the city of performance by distributing questionnaires at a variety of distribution points, through mailings, posting online and other methods. Responders were asked to describe physical memories and feelings, childhood and sensual experiences as well as pets and other ephemera.

It all adds up to a much anticipated music, dance and spoken word performance that mixes its global lineage with local DNA, all performed live by the collaborators for five nights only, November 19-23

As the old Chinese proverb says, “Memory paints with a golden brush.” Execution of Precious Memories uses that brush to take real memories and contextualize them in a piece of fiction. And fiction as we’ve often been told, is “the lie that tells the truth.”

Nick Cave, Blixa Bargeld & Mick Harvey – To Have And To Hold




Blixa Bargeld, Nick Cave & Mick Harvey – To Have And To Hold
Label: The Fine Line
Catalog#: IONIC 15 CD
Format: CD
Country: Europe
Released: 1996
Genre: Electronic
Style: Experimental

A rare find! This one’s a fine score composed by , with from and one-time Bad Seed , as the soundtrack to Aussie director ‘s 1996 film, To Have And To Hold.

also directed 2 amazing recent movies, The Proposition and Ghosts of the Civil Dead, with which Cave was highly involved.

All plus a rare performance from the great ! The great man performs a cover of Dylan’s I Threw It All Away as arranged by one-time Bad Seed !

Of course, we already have a shitload of posts pertaining to one of our long time favourites and and, Nick’s earlier group, the wild and fucked-up .

Even some stuff from the earliest days, from the short lived,

I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this except that the music was composed by Nick Cave and a couple of his Bad Seeds. But when I first listened, one thing became abundantly clear:if you are looking for a traditional Bad Seeds album, you should pass on this. On the other hand, if you enjoy Cave’s work beyond the confines of what you are used to, To Have and To Hold may prove to be a surprise.

Cave and bandmates Blixa Bargeld and Mick Harvey have here woven together a seamless series of mostly instrumental pieces that SOUND like they belong in a movie. This pleasant and relaxing soundtrack climaxes in the song I Threw It All Away, rendered here by the enigmatic Scott Walker.

The only discordant note is sounded by the cacophonous Gangstar Bone. I didn’t see the film, so I have no idea what its place is, but it will rudely shake you from the reverie induced by the rest of the CD.

To Have and To Hold will likely only appeal to Cave completeists or to the musically adventurous. If your tastes are limited to more mainstream music, then you will probably want to avoid this.

Three stars for effort and originality.

San Francisco, October 7, 2008Blixa Bargeld will collaborate with new music ensemble Nanos Operetta and award-winning choreographer, filmmaker and artistic director of KUNST-STOFF, Yannis Adoniou in the US debut of Bargeld’s Execution of Precious Memories.

Performances of this project that has enjoyed culture-specific runs in 8 cities since it’s debut in Berlin circa 1994 are scheduled for Project Artaud Theater, located at 450 Florida Street, San Francisco CA 94111

Tickets: Brownpapertickets.com; links to ticket purchase also on kunst-stoff.org

Bargeld— whose life long work with Einstürzende Neubauten has strongly influenced Nine Inch Nails, Marliyn Manson, Depeche Mode and the evolution of Industrial Music—will appear alongside Nanos Operetta in a rare live performance as part of a fundraiser for the run to be held on October 19 at Foreign Cinema in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Tickets for the fundraiser are available at www.kunst-stoff.org

“This collaboration has been a longtime desire for Nanos,” say Nanos Operetta’s Ali Tabatabai. “Blixa Bargeld is a true maverick and an instinctual idealist who follows his creative hallucinations and musical compulsions without fear of consequence; his sonic and textual investigations have informed virtually all of Nanos Operetta’s work.”

Execution of Precious Memories is a worldwide work that began in Berlin in 1994. Since then it has been performed in culture specific performances in 8 other cities. This is the first performance in US—and the first performance period—since 2001. When asked about the collaboration, Adoniou explains that “Blixa is not only an exceptional musician but also a conceptual guru,” before adding, “It is a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to finally work with him.”

Dancers performing are Marina Fukushima, John Mercke, Jennifer Meek, Andrew Ward, Suzanne Lappas and Justin Andrews.

Memories collects anonymous recollections from individuals living in the city of performance by distributing questionnaires at a variety of distribution points, through mailings, posting online and other methods. Once the 50-question forms are complete they are compiled together by the collaborators who then pull out specific lines, situations, descriptions of physical feelings, associations with animals, childhood and sensual experiences along with other ephemera to produce a cohesive single work.

In this case that means a much anticipated music, dance and spoken word performance that mixes its global lineage with local DNA, all performed live by the collaborators for five days only.

As the old Chinese proverb says, “Memory paints with a golden brush.” Execution of Precious Memories uses that brush to take real memories and contextualize them in a piece of fiction. And fiction as we’ve often been told, can be viewed as “the lie that tells the truth.”


The survey is available in both print and online.

The online survey can be filled out and submitted online at http://www.blixa-bargeld.com/VKESF

The paper form of the survey will be distributed at random throughout the Bay Area; it can be filled out by hand and mailed to: Bargeld Entertainment, 405 El Camino Real #430, Menlo Park, CA 94025

By utilizing local respondents and responses, Precious Memories becomes an almost interactive performance by using the memories of its audience in its construction.

The survey cut-off date is November 1, 2008

Performances of Execution of Precious Memories by Year and City

1994 – Berlin

A great collection of and the released back in 98.

Some great cuts in here. However, any sort of Cave fan needs to get the various individual albums. Especially, of course, his greatest LP The Boatman’s Call.

https://i1.wp.com/www.dgdesignnetwork.com.au/dgdn/wp-content/images/Nick_Cave_02.jpg

Check a discography here: Cave – Discography

We’ve posted a shitload of other pieces pertaining and and also Nick’s earlier group, the wild, wonderful and fucked-up .

Even some stuff from the earliest days, from the short lived,

Nick Cave is unquestionably an album artist. Each of his records has a specific mood and theme, standing as an individual work. That said, his albums have also been notoriously uneven. Sometimes, as on From Her to Eternity or The Boatman’s Call, he has delivered near-masterpieces, while on other albums, only a handful of songs have hit the mark accurately, which is why The Best of Nick Cave is a welcome addition to his catalog. Granted, the title is a bit odd (it’s better than Greatest Hits, however), but the compilation itself is as good as it could possibly be. All the major songs — “Red Right Hand,” “Straight to You,” “Nobody’s Baby Now,” “Into My Arms,” “Do You Love Me?,” “Henry Lee,” “Where the Wild Roses Grow,” “From Her to Eternity” — are on this 16-track collection, along with several strong album cuts.

Some hardcore fans will find a couple of favorites missing, and the disc should have been sequenced in chronological order, but The Best of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds is nevertheless a terrific single-disc overview of his rewarding, occasionally inaccessible work with the Bad Seeds; it’s ideal for both the curious and the casual fan.

One of lil Nicky’s earliest forays into movie soundtracks. This time for a movie co-written by Nick with director John Hillcoat. The two teamed up again last year to great effect with the wonderful, Cave-scripted, Outback Ozzy Western “The Proposition”!



I remember seeing Ghosts of the Civil Dead back in the day, and very impressive it was too. A very dark portrait of a fucked-up futuristic high-security prison somewhere in the wilds of Australia with Mr Cave excellent as a demented psychotic inmate!


The film’s score was actually written by and , (of great German band and , all then members of Cave’s band,

– another long time Cave collaborator, and indeed one time paramour – is involved here, singing (and, on video, in the movie itself) A Prison In The Desert.

This is an excellent and eclectic soundtrack, matching the dark realness of the movie.

A good review of the movie can be had here; sensesofcinema/ghosts

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds – Stranger than Kindness

https://i0.wp.com/fc45.deviantart.com/fs15/f/2007/044/2/b/Skinny____by_Helenabw.jpg

by Helenabw

Stranger than kindness
Bottled light from hotels
Spilling everything
Wet hand from the volcano
Sobers your skin
Stranger than Kindness

You caress yourself
And grind my soft cold bones below
Your map of desire
Burned in your flesh
Even a fool can come
A strange lit stair
And find a rope hanging there
Stranger than kindness

Keys rain like heaven’s hair
There is no home, there is no bread
We sit at the gate and scratch

The gaunt fruit of passion
Dies in the light
Stranger than kindness

Your sleeping hands journey
They loiter
Stranger than kindness
You hold me so carelessly close
Tell me I’m dirty
Stranger than kindness

There will always be suffering
It flows through life like water
I put my hand over her’s
Down in the lime tree arbour


This classic from 1997 is, in my view, by far the best of Cave’s albums, at once melancholic, yearning, beautiful and redemptive.

Also, importantly, there is a sense of truth and depth in the lyrics that gets lost in the archness of much of his lyrical output elsewhere.

This album speaks of lost love, pain, disappointment and distant yesterdays that survive only only in tortured memory. And it does so in a beautiful, resonant and poetic manner.

Cave’s subsequent, and indeed previous, albums, although sometimes containing moments of brilliance, unfortunately all fall short of this one.

Apparently, the females who caused such anguish to poor old Nicky, and who ‘inspired’ this exceptional work were;

  • his Brazilian ex-wife Viviane Carneiro, from whom he had then recently split (most explicitly on ‘People Ain’t No Good’ and ‘Brompton Oratory’),
  • Tori Amos (a rather incongruous pairing!) with whom he had some liaison and who apparently, as ‘Green Eyes’ relates, has a ‘twinkling cunt’ (she braided her pussy hairs, rumour has it! WTF!), and finally
  • Polly Jean Harvey (see the picture above for reasons why!… oh momma!! …) with whom there was a torrid affair which West Country Girl’ and ‘Black Hair’ speak most explicitly about.

This is what getting fucked up by a woman can do for you …. you can, if talented enough, make great art to release the demons! We see this scenario evidenced too in, amongst others, Dylan’s great ‘Blood on the Tracks’, the Stones best album ‘Exile on Main Street’ and in the only half decent album by bombastic U2 ‘Actung B’.

https://i0.wp.com/fc04.deviantart.com/fs24/f/2008/018/7/2/Boatman__s_Call_by_FeniceNera.jpg
by FeniceNera

Now I know Cave here wears his influences clearly on his sleeve (does that mean he ‘rips off’ other musicians?, I’m not sure … and I’m not sure it even matters … nothing in music, or art more broadly, is entirely, or even significantly, original).

As usual with Nick, there’s the continual strong influence at play (especially, in the stylised nature of ‘Green Eyes’).

However, foremost on this album there’s the footprint of Bob Dylan’s majestic Desirewhich too was a redemptive album by His Bobness (aka god) and a manifestation of the then current state of his relationship with estranged wife Sara, ‘Desire’ being essentially an extended love song and a kind of ‘take me back please’ plea to that beautiful lady.

Nick here basically copies Bob’s magnificent song Sarafrom Desire in ‘Where Do We Go Now but Nowhere’ – and also the song title ‘West Country Girl’ makes the Dylan influence even more obvious!

However, regardless of this, The Boatman’s Call is a supreme piece of work in its own right.

Never have Cave’s lyrics been so pared down, minimal, beautiful and poetic. Never therein have the spiritual and the profane merged and counterpointed so well (as is a hallmark of Leonard Cohen’s canon). Never has the imagery been almost haiku like in it’s beauty, simplicity and profundity.

Never has the music been so beautifully sparse and never has it meshed so consistently well with the lyric, across an entire album.

Never has there been such consistency in terms of quality and theme across one of his albums.

And never has the overall work so successfully exceeded even the sum of the magnificent individual parts!

This for sure is Cave’s meisterwerk!

Anita Lane – some Great Albums

https://i1.wp.com/www.mutesong.com/store/images/anita_lane.jpg
Some great Albums from wonderful Oz songwriter and performer , who has been involved in cutting-edge and avant-garde music for almost 30 years now!

Anita was born in Melbourne, Australia in the late 1950s and began singing and writing songs at age 16. She was a classmate with Rowland S. Howard who would later from and with .

Lane became Cave’s girlfriend and moved to London with the band in 1980. She co-wrote the lyrics of three songs for The Birthday Party (“Dead Joe”, “Kiss Me Black” and “A Dead Song”) before they imploded in 1983.

https://i0.wp.com/b3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/01030/31/04/1030214013_l.jpg

Lane is sometimes credited as a founding member of and , which was forged from the debris left behind by The Birthday Party’s demise. She had an undeniably strong influence upon Nick Cave and his work, often cited as his “muse”, although her only recorded performance with the band is a ‘cameo’ verse on the Bob Dylan cover “Death Is Not The End” from the album Murder Ballads.

https://i2.wp.com/a185.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/9/m_002c61f908271d05ae5ed5046f390d40.jpgShe co-wrote the lyrics of the title track to the band’s 1984 LP, From Her to Eternity, as well as the lyrics of the song “Stranger Than Kindness” from Your Funeral, My Trial. She also began to perform and record her own songs.

In the great “Ghosts… Of The Civil Dead”, soundtrack by Nick Cave, Blixa Bargeld and Mick Harvey, Anita sings on video A Prison In The Desert.

She worked with the German band Die Haut before recording Dirty Sings under her own name. She was joined on the record by Nick Cave, and Bad Seeds , Thomas Wydler, and , who produced.

With , Lane has recorded a series of albums that showcased the dichotomy between her baby doll voice and the sexual longing of her lyrics. These include a pair of albums of Serge Gainsbourg’s covers, 1995’s The Intoxicated Man and 1997’s Pink Elephants.

Harvey also produced Lane’s 1993 collection, Dirty Pearl, which compiled tracks from Lane’s work with Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Haut, as well as exclusive album tracks.

Harvey co-wrote several songs, including the UK hit single, “The World’s A Girl”. Lane’s most recent collaboration with Harvey is 2001’s Sex O’ Clock.

So we’re real happy to present some great albums from – thanks to Joe le Taxi!

We already posted some Anita stuff here.

First, Anita appears on 3 tracks on the great bootleg Tom Waits,Nick Cave and-friends

Also Anita wrote the lyrics for the English language version of “Blume” from ‘s ‘Malediction‘ album.

https://i1.wp.com/www.mutesong.com/store/images/anita_lane.jpg

Contained therein was the wonderful song “Blume

My name, should you know it,

Another beautiful lyrical song from Einsturzende Neubauten!

Typically avant garde in its construction and production.

Wonderful video too!

https://i1.wp.com/www.mutesong.com/store/images/anita_lane.jpgI first heard this years back on Anita Lane’s wonderful LP “Black Pearl”.

Yap, lovely Aussie Anita’s the female part of the duet! Not in the vid though! (we think the chick here is Etsuko Sakamaki-Haas, who appeared on the Japanese versoin of the song … see more below!)

Anita wrote the lyrics for this the English language version of ‘Blume’ from Einstürzende Neubauten’s ‘Malediction‘ album.

Check more Anita here: http://www.anitalane.com/index.html

BTW … If anyone’s got some Anita albums, please let me know!

Was this called HANA in the Japanese version?!

We don’t know who wrote or performed the Japanese version though!! Maybe Maria Ozawa?!

Actually, we now know very well who wrote and performed the Japanese version, cos Joe le taxi told us!

3 Blume (Japanese Version) (4:34)
Vocals, Lyrics By [Translation] – Etsuko Sakamaki-Haas
(http://www.discogs.com/release/189289)

Etsuko’s a guest singer and we don’t know about her., alas! Seems she’s married to a German (based on the family name … Haas), probably someone with contact to the Einsturzende Neubauten. If anyone knows more, please let us know!

For you I`ll be a dandelion
a thousand flowerettes in the sky
Or just a drop in the ocean

If you know my name
don’t speak it out
it holds a power — as before

Liliacea
A lily of the valley
a flower of saron

Helianthus annus
For you I even be a sunflower
Do you hear my enlightening laughter?
another reason to cut off an ear

For you know my name, do you not?
don’t say it
For it is sacred, immovable frozen

Rosa, Anemone et Nymphea alba
I’ll even be a waterlily,
a marygold, a rose
or a little thistle

Euphorbia
a blue dahlia, a black tulip
that’s where opinions differ
the scholars disagree

My name, should you know it
remains unspeakable
and is spoken — malediction

Yap, Blixa’s singing in English here on this beautiful complex ambiguous ditty.

It’s the amazing and wonderful video for the great EN song “Sabrina”.

Loadsa ghoulishness and weirdness in the vid!

And oceans of self-loathing!

Nice!

Just like your typical US pop video!!

What a dingy setting! Reminds me of a place I used to live in years ago!

It’s not the red of the dying sun
The morning sheets’ surprising stain
It’s not the red of which we bleed
The red of cabernet sauvignon
A world of ruin all in vain

It’s not that red
It’s not that red
It’s not that red

It’s not as golden as Zeus’s famous shower
It’s doesn’t, not at all, come from above
It’s in the open but it doesn’t get stolen

It’s not that gold

It’s not as golden as memory
Or the age of the same name

It’s not that gold
It’s not that gold
It’s not that gold
It’s not gold at all

I wish that would be your color
I wish this would be your color
I wish this would be your color
Your color, I wish

It is as black as Malevich’s square
The cold furnace in which we stare
A high pitch on a future scale
It is a starless winter night’s tale
It suits you well

It is that black
It is that black
It is that black
It is that black

I wish this would be your color
I wish this would be your color
I wish this would be your color

Your color, I wish

It is that black
It is that black


This seems to be a song about Germany, it’s past dark actions and how it is perceived both internally and externally.

Of course, the colours of the German flag are black, yellow, and red. For yellow, just read gold.

“A world of ruin all in vain”… reference the holocaust and the untold WWII death? “

“It’s in the open but it doesn’t get stolen” …. There is a tale told of Vlad the Impaler who left a golden cup out in the centre of the town square, and nobody stole it for fear of being, well, impaled! Vlad and Hitler ain’t a million miles apart, evil cunts both!

“It’s as black as Malevich’s square” … Of course, Kazimir Malevich is a Russian artist who painted “Black Square” (which in true post-modernism, is just what it sounds like; a fucking black square!). Of course, recent German history is as black as hell!

The song seems to be about loss of pride and a lament for that situation, how it arose and its impacts.
https://i2.wp.com/fc92.deviantart.com/fs25/i/2008/038/f/0/German_Grunge_by_xxoblivionxx.jpg

The music video is fascinating. Notice how certain themes are subtly revealed: being the goat and wearing horns, the horror of self-reflection, the uselessness of make-up and jewelery, and the washing of hands. The setting is a dingy restroom, an underworld where dirty things are meant to be flushed away and forgotten. There’s a lot of water, too, which to me is suggestive of the River Styx.

Why do I mention this? Because I think it it ties in strongly with the lyrics, where the flag interpretation is probably correct. The song is many things: a critique of, a lament for, and a dialogue with, modern day Germany. The name Sabrina could be a personification of the country as a motherland. Perhaps the singer (Blixa Bargeld) is treating the nation as his lover, and is describing the qualities which he feels she lacks and should strive for.

Consider all the positive things which the colors of the German flag are said NOT to stand for:
– the beauty of a sunset
– sexual consummation and procreation (i.e. stained sheets, and Zeus’ descent as a shower of gold to be with Danae)
– vital fluid, both literal (blood) and symbolic (red wine)
– golden memories and golden ages
– actual valuable gold, which would quickly be snatched if left in the open

Germany’s blackness dominates and muddies all the other colors. Malevich’s Black Square, for example, is an interesting reference. That painting is usually associated with the new order that was about to be established in the Russian Revolution of 1917. Lenin’s utopia, however, never came to be. The fact that the revolution didn’t live up to its promise might be tied to the lyric about “a high pitch on a future scale”.

As a parallel to Russia, Germany also derailed itself through the rise of Nazi ideals and the “cold furnace” of the Holocaust. Certainly, it’s no fun to carry an albatross around your neck into the post-WW2 world. How does a nation collectively atone for such a thing? Is it even possible? How can one move on with dignity rather than forgetfulness?

Those are big question with no easy answers. However, the *desire* to look for answers is important, which a song like “Sabrina” beautifully captures. When Bargeld sings “I wish this would be your color”, I like to think he’s dedicating it to Germany, with “this” referring to the song itself. Perhaps one day, the country’s colors will boldly stand for the right things.

If someone were to ask me if this is a love song, I would say yes. It’s about tough love.

Einstürzende Neubauten – Stella Maris

So you think the great Einstürzende Neubauten are all about industrial din, screaming and banging on weird instruments made from pieces of broken factories?!

Of course not!

Here’s the beautiful love song Stella Maris originally from the album Ende Neu (“Ending New”) in 1996.

This great song — a duet between Blixa Bargeld and Alexander Hacke’s wife, singer Meret Becker — became quite famous well outside of Germany!

Here we have two great videos! The great official video for Video for Stella Maris with Meret Becker and also a wonderful live performance.

I dream I’ll meet you deep deep down
The deepest point on Earth, Mariana Trench, ocean bottom
Between Nanga Parbat, K 2 and Everest,
The crest of the world, there you’ll be my banquet guest
Where nothing more can impede my vision
When you come I’ll see you coming from the world’s margin
Here there’s nothing of interest
The ruins of Atlantis just
But of you not a trace
I don’t think you’re coming anymore
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don’t worry, I won’t wake you
Before you wake up yourself
Across the ice towards the North Pole is where I’ll expect you
We’ll be standing on the axis
From Tierra del Fuego in hard dream labour to the pole
There everything will revolve just around us
The Pole Star directly above me
This is the pole I’ll wait here
Only I cannot see you coming from anywhere for miles around
I’m waiting at the wrong pole
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don’t worry, I won’t wake you
Before you wake up yourself
Please, please don’t wake me
Only as long as I dream do you exist…
Enlist in slumber on a ship
with course to Eldorado, that’s your home
Wait on the coast, look on the horizon
Until I at last see your sails there
But the captain is always drunk
And mostly down below deck
I can’t steer this ship in my wildest dreams
On a riff it springs a leek
In the North Sea it then sunk
An iceberg drives me back
I think I’ll be waiting for long
Punt stays undiscovered
We missed each other in our dreams
You dream me, I you
Don’t worry, I won’t wake you
Before you wake up yourself
You dream me, I you
Don’t worry, I’ll find you
Before you wake up yourself
Collared in a doze I’ll grab you
And pull you towards me
For you dream me, I you
I dream you, you me
We dream each other awake


We missed each other in our dreams.
You dream me, I you.
Don’t worry. I won’t wake you.

Einstürzende Neubauten – Full Discography
Industrial / Experimental

Germany



We like this great German group, and it’s not only for the fact that a guy called Ash Wednesday (what a wonderful handle … I’m jealous!) is an associate / touring member!

Yap, we do like experimental industrial Berlin music now and again!

And we do like this crowd, the falling new buildings, or Einstürzende Neubauten!

Einstürzende Neubauten have been supremely influential on numerous groups – starting with a band of the quality of and working downwards.

Of course Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Blixa Bargeld was a member of and for 20 years! Prior to that, Blixa was a mamber of Cave’s earlier group , which he joined in 1983.

In 2003, Bargeld quit the Bad Seeds in order to focus on Einstürzende Neubauten.

https://i2.wp.com/www.inmoskau.de/blog/wp-content/einstuerzende_neubauten_mos.jpg

The band’s been together for almost 29 years now! Yes! Really!

On April Fools Day, 1980, Einstürzende Neubauten made their first appearance in the Moon Club in Berlin.

Their sound has evolved down the years and aside from one extreme of cacophonous industrial din, the band have also, at a different extreme, produced many beautiful and lyrical songs.

Check this out, if you don’t believe me!! … EN – Stella Maris

This one was the second album released by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, released in 1985.

Nick Cave took his obsession with the American South and swamp blues a little further on this LP, with influences ranging from Elvis Presley to great bluesmen like Blind Lemon Jefferson and JL Hooker.

Not my favourite Cave LP, but some decent tracks on here.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – From Her to Eternity

I stepped into an avalanche,

It covered up my soul;
When I am not this hunchback that you see,
I sleep beneath the golden hill.
You who wish to conquer pain,
You must learn, learn to serve me well.

This is the great debut album by Nick and the Seeds after the death of the Birthday Party.

The Seeds here included the acclaimed Barry Adamson of Magazine fame and great Anita Lane, Nick’s former GF but a wonderful artist in her own right who would later make some amazing LPs of her own.

This one represents a transition between the Birthday Party’s extended punk scream and what would become an ever evolving Bad Seed sound – a controlled and masterful mix of blues, swamp music, post-punk, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan.

A mixture of gothic blues originals with some great covers – Cohen to Presley! – this is an amazing debut!

After the Birthday Party ended in a manner similar to a train collision, frontman Nick Cave emerged from the wreckage and hooked up ex-bandmate Mick Harvey, Blixa Bargeld (on loan from the industrial group Einsturzende Neubauten), Barry Adamson (fresh from Magazine), and the lovely but corpse-pale Anita Lane.

Thus the Bad Seeds were born, second only to Cave’s former band in their ability to create a rumbling caterwaul. What makes the Bad Seeds stand apart, though, are the elements of delta blues that Cave dredges up from the darkest recesses of his black, black heart–blues unlike any you’ve ever heard before – and his Faulkner -meets -Lovecraft lyrical obsessions.

“Well of Misery” shambles along drunkenly and eventually crumbles under its somnambulant pace. On the title track Cave exhorts, begs, and pleads like a whiskey priest begging for forgiveness after a bender while Bargeld’s guitar shrieks and wails like a congregation of devils. Including two of Cave’s more inspired covers – Leonard Cohen’s “Avalanche” and Presley’s “In the Ghetto” – From Her to Eternity captures Cave at the noisy intersection between the punk-rock entropy of the Birthday Party and his later incarnation as the gothic Elvis.

Amazing, scary stuff.

This one’s one of my favourite Cave LPs. Lots of great tracks like the seminal Mercy Seat and Deanna.
The dark, poetic troubadour tendencies hinted at in Cave’s work as early as his first album’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Avalance” blossom on TENDER PREY. In a style recalling Cohen and Tom Waits, Cave ups the lyrical ante considerably here. On gory detail-oriented, literate tunes like “Up Jumped the Devil” and “Mercy,” Cave’s second life as a novelist (he would soon author a book) is obvious. Here, the distance he achieves from his inner demons allows him to focus more on crafting his personal horror stories, making him seem like the Edgar Allen Poe of the rock world.

Tracklisting

1. Mercy Seat, The
2. Up Jumped the Devil
3. Deanna
4. Watching Alice
5. Mercy
6. City of Refuge
7. Slowly Goes the Night
8. Sunday’s Slave
9. Sugar Sugar Sugar
10. New Morning
11. Mercy Seat, The – (video mix)

This one is magnificent. One of the greatest albums of covers ever!

This was produced to get away from the abhorrent GOTH tag that lazy journalists had consistently applied to the Seeds for years!

Very eclectic song styles on offer, some relatively obscure tracks.

Surprisingly though, no Leonard Cohen and no Bob Dylan – the two main artists who Cave has, let’s say, been heavily inspired by (and aso ripped off!)!

While Cave wore his blues influence on his sleeve on his earlier solo recordings, this covers albums goes several steps further, revealing the full range of the artist’s inspiration. While Cave does his unparalleled goth-blues thing on John Lee Hooker’s “I’m Gonna Kill That Woman,” that’s only the beginning of the story. Cave convincingly tackles predictable proto-punk fare like the Velvet Underground’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties”, but more importantly, Cave the balladeer makes his debut here.

From Jimmy Webb’s “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” to Mickey Newbury’s “Sleeping Annaleah,” Cave practices the brand of gloriously melodramatic crooning that would define his ’90s work. Accordingly, Cave’s singing began to develop here, from the crazed ranting of his early days to a more luxurious baritone. Blixa Bargeld’s guitar also plays a role of increased importance–he would prove Cave’s perfect foil for years to come.

Tracklisting

1. Muddy Water
2. I’m Gonna Kill That Woman
3. Sleeping Annaleah
4. Long Black Veil
5. Hey Joe
6. Singer, The
7. Black Betty
8. Running Scared
9. All Tomorrow’s Parties
10. By the Time I Get to Phoenix
11. Hammer Song, The
12. Something’s Got a Hold of My Heart

This one was the first Cave album I ever bought having been mesmerized by Cave’s music in the wonderful “Wings of Desire”, from German auteur Wim Wenders.

I played this motherfucker to death, back then!

This was when Nick was in the middle of his obsession phase with John Lee Hooker, swamp music, Lenny Cohen, obscure blues and all things gothic!

Some great tracks on here that still sound amazing today.

Cave digs even deeper into his personal obsessions here than on the previous THE FIRSTBORN IS DEAD. While FIRSTBORN’s ominous bluesiness is still represented on the title track and “Long Time Man,” the balance of this album sounds decidedly more European. It was here that Cave’s Gothic troubadour persona really began to take shape. He takes the role of the grim storyteller on the album’s strongest track “The Carny” (featured to fine effect in Wim Wenders’ film WINGS OF DESIRE, in which Cave also appears as himself) and “Stranger Than Kindness.” There’s a gauzy, almost supernatural …

Tracklisting

1. You’re Funeral My Trial
2. Stranger Than Kindness
3. Jack’s Shadow
4. Carny, The
5. She Fell Away
6. Hard on For Love
7. Sad Waters
8. Long Time Man
9. Scum – (bonus track)
