General ticket sale for the UK and European dates starts tomorow, 15 Feb:

Nick Cave - European Tour, Extra North American Dates & Live Streamed Show

I'm thinking about going to one of the German shows, to Slovenia or Prague. All the dates are problematic for me, but there's still time to organize stuff. Hopefully there will be a chance to get tickets.

Oh my God, this album is so good. It just begs for successive listens. At first I was slightly thrown by the number of mass culture references and allusions to modern technology - to say nothing of the (deliberately, I assume, based on the delivery) awful opening lines of "Mermaids" and lines similar to it, but it all fits together. The music is incredibly subtle, and I've never been happier to have Warren Ellis around, which is saying something.

It's a shame that I still can't get into Nocturama. I love the second half, for the most part, though, but it interrupts an incredible succession of albums. Let Love In, Murder Ballads, The Boatman's Call, and No More Shall We Part represent such a diverse set of styles, both musically and lyrically. And on the other side, Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!! and Push the Sky Away constitute what is, for me, the most incredible and sustained streak of late career home runs (and again, so diverse and distinctive). And then there are the Grinderman records.

Damn you, Nocturama.

Yeah, he totally has trucker's arm in that painting.

So Push the Sky Away and mbv are in a close two-horse race for my favorite album this year. PTSA is fucking fantastic. It's a lyrical masterpiece and takes his music in fascinating new directions. I heard Jubilee Street on the radio tonight, and man, how brilliant is that track? "I'm transforming/I'm flying/I'm glowing/I'm flying/Look at me now" into that psychedelic wash of guitar and viola is just fantastic. It sounds like a sexy combination of Venus In Furs and Spacemen 3's cover of Transparent Radiation.

It really is. I am actually listening to it just now. The Jubilee Street - Mermaids - We Real Cool trio is among the best music he's ever made.

Higgs Boson Blues is the best cover of Neil Young's On The Beach that I've ever heard.

Hm, not sure I get that vibe from it. On the Beach is almost buoyant in mood despite the less-than-optimistic lyrical content. Higgs Boson is about as macabre as it comes.

Dude seems like a real misanthrope.

I don't have tickets to see him in a couple of weeks. I feel like I'll come to regret it, but it's over $100.

I'm talking about this song:

Neil Young - On The Beach - YouTube

If you listed 1,000 adjectives to describe this song, "buoyant" would be near the bottom, along with "perky."

Oh, okay, the song. I was thinking of something like Vampire Blues. I do love that record.
