When I was at Reprise Nick Cave was a cherished and credible artist who didn't make the company a great deal of money but who helped define the label and attract other credible artists, some of whom did make the company a great deal of money. Soon after I retired, they dropped Nick. I was really excited this morning when someone at Mute in the U.K. sent me an advance copy of his new album, Dig, Lazarus, Dig. The first thing I thought of was sharing it with the LNMC. I listened all day and it blows me away. I might as well start with the first track, which is also the title track. Do you have a favorite post-Birthday Party Nick Cave song?
