Everyone in the Bad Seeds who isn't in Grinderman should quit. Totally redundant now, as proven by that horrible Lazarus album.

Actually, maybe that proves that the Grinderman album was an abberration in Cave's songwriting decline.

Anyway, I'm way off the point here.

If 'I'm a believer' from Anita Lane's Dirty Sings was Mick Harvey's only contribution to the world of recorded music he would still be a legend in my mind. Good luck to him on his future endeavours.

Sad but surprised really but tuff decision for Harvey to make... he's worked with Cave for
the last 32 years and managed the birthday party/bad seeds throughout.

Though having seen the Bad Seeds just before christmas, I assumed it was
Savage to leave next, he's doing nothing on stage.. I was embarressed for him!

Cave's pretty much on been on a one-man crusade for a good few years now.
Irrespective of Warren's obvious input, Cave calls all the shots, takes all the cash,
pays all the bills & pockets the rest. The rest are on a wage at this stage.
Not that I'm complaining as personnally I think his current output & live performances
are the best in years... but then again I am a Birthday Party fan. Bring on the
new Grinderman record....

Thank god Nick burned that damn Grand Piano, that wot I say!!!!
