Album artwork for From Her to Eternity by Nick Cave

Vinyl transfer approval overseen by Mick Harvey Summer 2014, cut at Abbey Road studios. Vinyl is heavyweight 180 gram with Download. After the Birthday Party ended in a manner similar to a train collision, frontman Nick Cave emerged from the wreckage and hooked up ex-bandmate Mick Harvey, Blixa Bargeld (on loan from the industrial group Einsturzende Neubauten), Barry Adamson (fresh from Magazine), and the lovely but corpse-pale Anita Lane. Thus the Bad Seeds were born, second only to Cave's former band in their ability to create a rumbling caterwaul. What makes the Bad Seeds stand apart, though, are the elements of Delta blues that Cave dredges up from the darkest recesses of his black, black heart - blues unlike any you've ever heard before - and his Faulkner-meets-Lovecraft lyrical obsessions. 'Well of Misery' shambles along drunkenly and eventually crumbles under its somnambulant pace. On the title track Cave exhorts, begs, and pleads like a whiskey priest begging for forgiveness after a bender while Bargeld's guitar shrieks and wails like a congregation of devils. Including two of Cave's more inspired covers - Leonard Cohen's 'Avalanche' and Presley's 'In the Ghetto' - 'From Her to Eternity' captures Cave at the noisy intersection between the punk-rock entropy of the birthday party and his later incarnation as the gothic elvis.
