Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! (Album Review)

Recently, Nick Cave embarked on a round of interviews to promote his 14th studio album with the Bad Seeds. In one particularly entertaining profile, Cave revealed that he was petitioning to have a large statue of himself, clad in a loincloth and seated astride a rearing stallion, installed on a roundabout in his home town of Warracknabeal, in southern Australia. He then turned his attentions to his 1997 album The Boatman’s Call, his beautiful, anguished eulogy for a failed relationship with fellow singer-songwriter Polly Harvey. He considered its merits in terms rather more redolent of his countryman Sir Les Patterson than you might expect from a man once commissioned to give a lecture on the art of the love song at the Vienna poetry festival. “I’d got dumped by some bird and here I was making some great statement,” he reflected ruefully, “about some f*cking sheila.”
