Grinderman: No Pussy Blues
Grinderman: Grinderman (EMI) BEST OF ELSEWHERE 2007

In which Nick Cave takes a break from his dark and Biblical stuff and just gets down and dirty with a raw, edgy band to make music which seems to come with machine oil on its hands and blown through with thick diesel smoke.

Cave is also obviously having fun with his persona, but that doesn't stop some of the raucous, simple and often aggressive songs here sounding like he's gone back to the Birthday Party for his template.

There are some quieter tracks here, but mostly this is bruising and menacing stuff which grips like headlock.

Play loud.
