Distant Sky live in Copenhagen

The new EP ‘Distant Sky’ from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will be released on 12” vinyl and digitally on 28 September.

 

Let us go now, my one true love
Call the gasman, cut the power out
We can set out, we can set out for the distant skies
Watch the sun, watch it rising in your eyes


Let us go now, my darling companion
Set out for the distant skies
See the sun, see it rising
See it rising, rising in your eyes


They told us our gods would outlive us
They told us our dreams would outlive us
They told us our gods would outlive us
But they lied


Let us go now, my only companion
Set out for the distant skies
Soon the children will be rising, will be rising
This is not for our eyes

Girl In Amber

Some go and some stay behind
Some never move at all
Girl in amber trapped forever, spinning down the hall
Let no part of her go unremembered, clothes across the floor
Girl in amber lumber slumber shuts the bathroom door

 

The phone, the phone, the phone it rings, it rings, it rings no more
The song, the song, the song it spins since nineteen eighty-four
The phone, the phone, the phone, it rings, the phone, it rings no more
The song, the song it's been spinning now since nineteen
And if you want to bleed, just bleed
And if you want to bleed, just bleed
And if you want to bleed, don't breathe
A word

 

Just step away and let the world spin
And now in turn, you turn
You kneel, lace up his shoes, your little blue-eyed boy
Take him by his hand, go move and spin him down the hall
I get lucky, I get lucky cause I tried again
I knew the world it would stop spinning now since you've been gone
I used to think that when you died you kind of wandered the world
In a slumber till you crumbled, were absorbed into the earth
Well, I don't think that any more

 

The phone it rings no more
The song, the song it spins now since nineteen eighty-four
The song, the song, the song it spins, it's been a spinning now
And if you'll hold me I will tell you that you know that
And if you want to leave, don't breathe
And if you want to leave, don't breathe
And if you want to leave, don't breathe a word
And let the world turn

 

The song, the song it spins, the song, it spins, it spins no more
The phone, it rings, it rings
And you won't stay

 

Don't touch me
Don't touch me
Don't touch me
Don't touch me

Nicholas Cave times three.

You fell from the sky
Crash landed in a field
Near the river Adur
Flowers spring from the ground
Lambs burst from the wombs of their mothers
In a hole beneath the bridge
She convalesce, she fashioned masks of twigs and clay
You cried beneath the dripping trees
Ghost song lodged in the throat of a mermaid


With my voice
I am calling you


You're a young man waking
Covered in blood that is not yours
You're a woman in a yellow dress
Surrounded by a charm of hummingbirds
You're a young girl full of forbidden energy
Flickering in the gloom
You're a drug addict lying on your back
In a Tijuana hotel room


With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you


You're an African doctor harvesting tear ducts
You believe in God, but you get no special dispensation for this belief now
You're an old man sitting by a fire, hear the mist rolling off the sea
You're a distant memory in the mind of your creator, don't you see?


With my voice
I am calling you
With my voice
I am calling you


Let us sit together until the moment comes


With my voice
I am calling you


With my voice, I am calling you

 

Mostly I never knew which way was out
Once it was on, it was on and that was that
The umbilicus was a force that they'd found in rabid blood
Then I spin on my wheel like a laboratory rat
I was an electrical storm on the bathroom floor, clutching the bowl
My blood was for the gags and other people's diseases
My monstrous little memory had swallowed me whole
It was the year I officially became the bride of Jesus


In love, in love, in love you laugh
In love you move, I move and one more time with feeling
For love, you love, I laugh, you love
Saw you in heart and the stars are splashed across the ceiling


Oh, the urge to kill somebody was basically overwhelming
I had such hard blues down there in the supermarket queues
And I had a sudden urge to become someone, someone like you
Who started out with less than anyone I ever knew


In love, in love, I love, you love, I laugh, you love
I move, you move and one more time with feeling
I love, you love, I laugh, you love
I'm sewn in heart and all the stars are splashed 'cross the ceiling


Oh, and oh, you come shining
Softly to the hold of a drink
Come as far as the edge of my blood and swim
And in the bathroom mirror I see me vomit in the sink
And all through the house we hear the hyena's hymns


Of love, I love, you love, I love, you love, I laugh, you love
I move, you move, you move, and one more time with feeling
I love, you love, I laugh, you love
We saw each other in heart and all the stars have splashed and splattered 'cross the ceiling

 

 

I was ridin', I was ridin', oh
The sun, the sun, the sun was rising from the fields

 

I got a feeling I just can't shake
I got a feeling that just won't go away
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

And if your friends think that you should do it different
And if they think that you should do it the same
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

And if you feel you got everything you came for
If you got everything and you don't want no more
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

And some people say it's just rock and roll
Oh but it gets you right down to your soul
You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

 

You've gotta just keep on pushing and, keep on pushing and
Push the sky away

Com uns diazitos de atraso.

From i-D magazine:

You probably aren’t aware of ICCARRE and Dr Leibowich, the French immunologist at the forefront of a series of trials looking at the effects of reducing HIV medication in the treatment of patients. In English, the name ICCARRE translates as “taken in short cycles, anti-retrovirals remain effective.” During two clinical trials involving 94 patients taking the standard “triple cocktail” combination of drugs, seven days a week, Dr Leibowitch reduced their treatment plan to just four days a week with 100% success rate. The relief of both the psychological and the physical consequences of daily medication is immeasurable.

Love Letter

I hold this letter in my hand
A plea, a petition, a kind of prayer
I hope it does as I have planned
Losing her again is more than I can bear
I kiss the cold, white envelope
I press my lips against her name
Two hundred words. We live in hope
The sky hangs heavy with rain

 

Love Letter Love Letter
Go get her Go get her
Love Letter Love Letter
Go tell her Go tell her

 

A wicked wind whips up the hill
A handful of hopeful words
I love her and I always will
The sky is ready to burst
Said something I did not mean to say
Said something I did not mean to say
Said something I did not mean to say
It all came out the wrong way

 

Love Letter Love letter
Go get her Go get her
Love Letter Love letter
Go tell her Go tell her

 

Rain your kisses down upon me
Rain your kisses down in storms
And for all who'll come before me
In your slowly fading forms
I'm going out of my mind
Will leave me standing in
The rain with a letter and a prayer
Whispered on the wind
Come back to me
Come back to me
O baby please come back to me

Shivers

The Birthday Party (originally known as The Boys Next Door) were an Australian post-punk band, active from 1978 to 1983. Despite limited commercial success, The Birthday Party's influence has been far-reaching, and they have been called "one of the darkest and most challenging post-punk groups to emerge in the early '80s." The group's "bleak and noisy soundscapes," which drew irreverently on bluesfree jazz, and rockabilly, provided the setting for vocalist Nick Cave's disturbing tales of violence and perversion. Their music has been described by critic Simon Reynolds as gothic, and their single "Release the Bats" was particularly influential on the emerging gothic scene.

I've Got A Future

Pablo Clements and James Griffith of UNKLE have a side project called Toydrum. On their new remix album 'My Eye On You (To Reinvision)', they enlisted “friends, peers and people we love to work with” to reimagine songs from their albums 'Distant Focus Vol. 1' and 'Evangelist'. Two of those peers are Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, who have delivered their rework of Toydrum’s “I've Got a Future,” featuring the late singer-songwriter Gavin Clark.
