Grinderman gave us the greatest ever Nick Cave quote. Well at least one I hope is true. Not sure if it actually is or not.

"When asked if "No Pussy Blues" had a deeper meaning, Nick Cave replied 'no, it's just about not getting any pussy when I grew my mustache'."

Rings of Saturn is an incredibly evocative song. It reminds me of something that I can't quite put my finger on, but the feeling is so distinct.

CA people currently not in possession of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds tickets should make every effort to change that. The Denver show was so amazing I nearly lost my freaking mind.

cobl says everything better than I do about music so read this again and then move heaven and earth to get your hands on tickets:

- Higgs Boson Blues is one of the best songs ever, and live it's another five notches better. Featured some guttural screaming as well as Nick Cave breaking the fourth wall asking a woman what the fuck she was doing touching his dick
- The very touching personal epiphany I had walking back from the bar during From Her to Eternity (I don't normally go to the bar during gigs but I owed the chick I went with a drink)
- Tupelo, a song I didn't know, absolutely fucking epic as all fuck
- Jubilee Street, see Higgs Boson Blues. "I'm transforming / I'm vibrating / look at me now" is the most fierce shit you will ever see live
- Another very lovely personal epiphany during Into My Arms, Ship Song was also very nice
- I Need You being even better live than on record
- Stagger Lee being absolutely fucking mental
- Push the Sky Away an exceptional song

But I save the biggest comment for the main set closer, which was Distant Sky followed by Skeleton Tree. It was incredibly powerful, so emotional. Nick Cave is at the absolute peak of his powers. Like the stuff from Skeleton Tree and Push the Sky Away is the best shit, it's so good.

Go and see him, because live music doesn't get much better.

You have to see this show. I went back in January in Sydney and it was astonishing.

I saw him on Friday - fantastic show in a beautiful venue. Higgs Boson Blues is a fucking monster, arguably his best song. During Stagger Lee he kept pulling people on stage until there were probably 50 people up there with him - never seen anything like it before. I don't know what I can say about the Skeleton Tree songs
 
the timing of this show coincided with some heavy personal stuff, so they resonated in a particular way that I can't really articulate. But tremendously beautiful nonetheless. I'm almost glad he didn't play Rings of Saturn, because I think I would have lost it in public.

Yep, that happened in Denver, too.

 
I think he really tapped into something following the tragic death of his son, yet the show somehow wasn't sad but really powerful and penetrating.

Rings of Saturn is one of the most gorgeous things he's ever done and at first I was disappointed not to hear it but in the end, every song was a highlight and it was just perfect the way it was. Push the Sky Away with him out in the middle of the audience just connecting in a way that I've only ever seen Bono do was incredible.

Nick Cave Rushmore? This is particularly tough given the breadth of his career.

(No particular order)
Higgs Boson Blues
The Mercy Seat (specifically the live KCRW version)
Are You the One That I've Been Waiting For?
Rings of Saturn

If we were including live versions, Stagger Lee would be up there. That song is fucking ridiculous live.

I heard a guy do karaoke for this song the other night. It's a terrible karaoke song because you spend half the song standing there while an organ plays menacingly in the background, and the other half trying and failing to be as cool as Nick Cave. But it's a classic track so I was happy to hear it.
