Heart Full Of Black the lead trick on this is seriously killer, shame the  video uploaded is so pixelated...

That type of statement means nothing unless you define “rock” and “dead”

Finally found a nice used copy…this must have sold little in US cause it’s first time I seen a copy out in the wild

Many years ago I heard about the connection between Nick and Alex Harvey

whoa...

Nick Cave: Fuck! I’ve never seenthat! My first band was basically an Alex Harvey cover band.


He's not wrong, after watching that I see where he gets his inspiration more than anyone else

Alex Harvey sounds like Bon Scott! And definitely AC/DC overtones

A lot of similarities between Bon Scott and Alex both late bloomers to rock… both from Scotland

I get the visceral charge one gets from new just released music but if something is new to me it’s new even if it came out in 1973! And I love exploring the connections…the history…how it all ties together

As far as Nick… some lyrical similarities in the types of songs… you can draw a line from Harvey--to Cave’s treatment of disturbing subject matter such as in I let love in
