Nick Cave – More Pricks Than Kicks
Alternative / 1995 / MP3 – VBRkbps joint-stereo / 99 MB /Rapidshare
“More Pricks Than Kicks” is a wonderful bootleg of cover versions as a complement to the wonderful Seeds covers LP Kicking against the Pricks
, all previously released but hard to obtain, except for the extended Tower Of Song
by King Lenny!
This boot features Cave singing the songs of other quality artists – including five from his days with The Boys Next Door at the much sought after Swinburne College gig from 1977.
The rest are rare Bad Seeds outtakes, or magazine give-aways etc.
The quality here is excellent.

Ripped from the original 1997 bootleg disc at 160 vbr.
This is a really stupendous Nick Cave bootleg!
First of note is the fact that it features the complete KCRW session Nick performed in March, 1989.
Also, included is a rare 1984 John Peel Session track (only released on an NME cassette), as well as 3 tracks from the 1995 Borderline gig in London, during which Cave performed the Boys Next Door classic Shivers, for the first time since 1979!
And a bunch of other wonderful stuff too (Top of the Pops, an instrumental track, other live tracks …. you name it.)
The sound, as described by bobsboots, is; “FM, Soundboard and Studio Recordings (mostly A+)”

If one compares “Door, Door” to later albums made by these soon-to-be-infamous Aussies — albums released under the Birthday Party
moniker — it sounds fairly tame and relatively straightforward.
But that’s not to say there’s anything wrong with it. In fact, it’s a frantic, edgy, and surprisingly catchy piece of post-punk mayhem; just don’t expect anything as original or downright disturbing as “Big-Jesus-Trash-Can” or “Zoo-Music Girl.”
The album starts out in high gear with “The Nightwatchman,” replete with ringing guitar figures, a boppy punk-pop chorus (yes, those are “ooh-ooh-ooh-oohs” you’re hearing), and dirty sax lines. Sax pops up on “Brave Exhibitions” as well, providing a meaty partner to the lead guitar on circular, descending scales that bring some weirdness to a straight-up rocker.
Things begin to get slightly more strange and troubled as the record plays on: “The Voice” and “Somebody’s Watching” are filled with a paranoid mania and creepy, memorable musical phrases that make them two of “Door, Door”‘s highlights. (The lead guitar parts in the latter song make it seem as if Rowland Howard spent time listening to Television at the wrong speed).
And “Roman Roman” is a frenzied schoolyard chant that hints at some of the anarchic pandemonium the group could create on-stage.
It’s impressive how, even at this early stage, Nick Cave was a confident and unique singer, perfectly aware of the strengths and limitations of his voice; although he’s not much for range, he knows how to come across in a scary and theatrical manner that perfectly complements the music. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the band’s closing, mournful ballad, “Shivers,” an unashamedly melodramatic example of post-adolescent anguish.
