Released: 2004

NEW VINYL LP ON MUTE 2014

2 X 180 GRAM VINYL.

First album, "Abattoir Blues" throbs with the desperation of a pre-Y2K preacher. In this nine song set, the end of the world is near and while Cave calls "every boy and girl" around the world to praise the heavens above, no one is guaranteed a “get out of hell free” card. Track "Hiding All Away" warns that there's "a war coming from above" and the theme continues, but unlike Sunday morning scammers such as Jim Baker and the like, Cave convinces with lyrics that paint a picture of an aching mother earth facing collapsing under the weight of a greedy avarice society. As Cave puts it in title track, "Abattoir Blues" - "I went to bed last night and my moral code got jammed/I woke up with a Frappucino in my hand" and, while he seems helpless to stop the destruction around him, you get the feeling that Cave would probably be the last man on deck - a good citizen going down with his defeated planet. http://www.nickcaveandthebadseeds.com/homet
