Bugger twice! I thought The Sage (at Gateshead) would be an ideal venue for a Bad Seeds gig.

Would have had to go on my own as I don't know anyone else into them.

But I can't be arsed to travel too far on my lonesome.

Grabbed the album on Sunday and I have to say I really am enjoying it. There are a lot of elements of Grinderman in it, one song at least seeming to be an actual Grinderman song in everything but name. Cave seems to be one of the most consistent writers out there.

It's certainly Grinderman pt2. No bad thing because you can't really go wrong with Cave having a good rant.

His lyrics seem to get better and better, more and more imaginative. The album seems really good, but I hope it'll really hit me with a few more listens. Already, however, it seems to me that We Call Upon The Author and More News From Nowhere are two absolute stand-outs.
But--anyone else a bit disappointed by the 'deluxe' booklet?

Paid the extra 5 quid for the 'deluxe' version, and to be perfectly honest I might as well have paid half the price for the download...

I;ve only had a chance to listen through once but it is fantastic on that one listen.

I paid £10.99 for and it he deluxe version is a bit rubbish especially when compared to the deluxe verison of the new Billy Bragg album which I paid £8.98 for. With that instead of a big lyric booklet you gettwo copies of the album - The standard band version and a solo version of the same songs. Ace.

On first listen I was pretty disappointed.

Only the single and last track did anything for me. Everything in between left me a bit cold really. My favourite Bad Seeds album is No More Shall We Part and this is quite different to that, so maybe not surprising that I didn't like it on first listen.

Hopefully it's a grower.

I thought the Sage was lacking when I saw him there a couple of years back ... the sound and visibility from the rear stalls was dreadful. Give me proper olde worlde venues like Edinburgh Playhouse or Manchester Apollo any day.

Other half was exactly the same - a few more listens and he's much more fond of it. Ironic really, he's definitely more of a Nick Cave fan than I am, and I pretty much adored this album from the first listen

It was this track/performance that convinced me to order the album...if the albums good, looks like I may well be looking for some more albums by the Cavester!

Abbatoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus was pretty cheap in HMV recently so it's probably even better value on line. Though this album also throws a lot back to Grinderman too, so maybe you'd want both if you could afford them.

Abbatoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus is an excellent album!

This new one isn't doing it for me at the moment I'm afraid

I had a great time at the Apollo last night.

He played for 2 hours, playing pretty much the whole of Dig, Lazarus, Dig and a fair smattering of stuff from other albums too. So charismatic, and a great showman. The sound mix was fantastic too

Highlights for me were Deanna, We Call Upon The Author, Lyre of Orpheus and Get Ready For Love.

Support from Barry Adamson was entertaining too, though it was a shame the sound mix was not so good for him (to be expected I suppose, as he was a support act)

Art Vanderlay - I'm off to the Apollo tonight to see him.

What time did he go on?

Barry Adamson 7:45 until 8:25
Nick Cave 8:55 until 10:55

Barry Adamson is not supporting tonight so whether they have a different support act or no support act could affect those timings I would imagine

Curfew for the venue last night was 11pm, but that may be different on a Friday, too.
