(Is he really just going to copy and paste from the e-mail announcement? You bet your red booty I will...)

The Loverman EP from Depeche Mode songwriter Martin L. Gore is released this week. Taken from his acclaimed cover versions album Counterfeit2, Martin's version of the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds classic is a taut and atmospheric electronic version. You can hear an excerpt of this at www.martingore.com and also see an extract of Martin performing Loverman in concert in Milan, a performance which is taken from the live DVD format that accompanies the CD single.

All formats and details are available from Mute Bank at

Unique rock n' roll muse Marianne Faithfull gathers some of the most acclaimed music talents for her new album. Three tracks were co-written with Nick Cave and recorded with Nick Cave & Bad Seeds' Warren Ellis, Jim Sclavunos and Martin P Casey.

Five tracks were also co-written with PJ Harvey and recorded with PJ Harvey and her band. Damon Albarn and Jon Brion also collaborate, each of them co-writting one song with Marianne. The forthcoming album "The Mystery Of Love" is to be released next March (2004).


Mick Harvey won the award for Best Original Soundtrack for Film and Television for his soundtrack of our film, "Australian Rules" at the Australian Recording Industry Association awards (ARIAS).

From the Goodson list:

After the demise of The Birthday Party Nick Cave was in the 'wilderness' and without management. In September 1983 he contacts Mick and a few other friends (Blixa Bargeld, Barry Adamson & Jim G. Thirlwell) to join him in London in the studio for what was initially planned as his first solo EP "Man Or Myth" for Mute records.

In October he records with Annie Hogan and Mark Almond and does a 3-date US Halloween tour (as The Immaculate Consumptive) with Jim, Mark & Lydia Lunch.

He then returns to Melbourne in December where he is contacted by concert promoter Ken West who sets up a short tour for him. His band is formed, first unnamed, then briefly as The Cavemen and later as The Bad Seeds. Almost 20 years later they're still world's greatest band.

A chronology of the early years (1983-1990) can be found at the (unofficial) site. A discography is to follow shortly.


Any additional information, comments, suggestions, corrections of a constructive nature or collaborations are always welcome!
