Grinderman: Heathen Child
THE BARGAIN BUY: Grinderman: Grinderman 2 (EMI)

Nick Cave has been very clear that Grinderman is not some side-project from the Bad Seeds, but nor is it a sort-of-solo-project-with-pals or an extension of the early Bad Seeds' darkly malevolent work.

It might be angry, blues-based and gloom-laden, but it also isn't a parody.

It is . . . Grinderman.

And to prove it, after their crazed, funny, sometimes scary debut album, they came back with this installment which pushed their boundaries even further.

This album got a major review here on release so we needn't go down that unlit alley which leads to the midnight forest again . . . just to note why it has suddenly appeared at Elsewhere again.JB_HZ_CHEAP_long

Well, at $10 from JB Hi-Fi stores here, it is this week's loud, raw and white-knuckle Bargain Buy

Absolute bargain, better than the debut album, and I bought it for ten bucks too.
