Grinderman – “Heathen Child”

Few people have truly earned the distinction of being a “bad-ass motherfucker.”  We all know Samuel L. Jackson is one.  Nick Cave is easily another.  Cave typically oozes cool and menace in equal measure.  However, in his role as the frontman for the debauched and raucous Grinderman, the scale is tipped in favor of menace.  Between Grinderman and the last two Bad Seeds albums (Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! and Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus), Cave has proven that he is still a force to be reckoned with and, quite possibly, making the best music of his three decade career.  If first single “Heathen Child” is any indication, his hot streak is about to get a little bit longer with the forthcoming Grinderman 2.  “Heathen Child” is five minutes of thumping dread, threats of an approaching “wolfman” and Warren Ellis’ gloriously unrestrained guitar squalls.  Dig the ridiculously awesome and totally NSFW video for the song below.

Grinderman 2 is out 9/14 on Anti.
