Grinderman Release Two Music Videos, Remix Album Out Now

Fuck, I miss Grinderman. I like the Bad Seeds and all, but Nick Cave was at the top of his game in a violent garage rock band. It’s like the deranged instrumentation of the Birthday Party with the brilliant narrative of the Bad Seeds. It’s not for everybody, but that’s the beauty of it. Anyways, their last effort (for now at least) appears to be the remix album I talked about back in January. Like I said earlier, I’ve never been one for remix albums cause I feel they can get over-indulgent and pretty boring (I don’t give a flying fuck if such-and-such DJ remixed a track I already thought was mediocre), but Cave and co. seem to always make an effort to make mundane stuff like this especially interesting. To top off the release, they’ve released two music videos for the remixes done by UNKLE (my personal favorite) and Factory Floor.

“Evil” (The Michael Cliffe House remix by Factory Floor) – Grinderman

Hyper Worm Tamer (UNKLE remix) – Grinderman

Pretty sweet. The Guardian were able to throw up the whole album for streaming on their website. No idea how long it’ll last but you should be able to listen to it for the next couple of weeks. I listened to the whole thing and I gotta say, it kicks ass. I’m not even judging it on remix album terms (in which you have to lower your standards significantly), but on actual album terms. Aside from the house music remix, I dig the whole thing. Especially the guitar solo on “Super Heathen Child.” It straight up spits fire and pisses all over the original version. You can check that out below as well as the other music video for “Bellringer Blues.” The rest of the album is available at the Guardian. RIP Grinderman. The good truly do die young.

    Thanks for the Guardian link. My CD is on its way. I am not into remixes either but it’s Grinderman so how bad can it be?
