Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds have been making their own style of Australian alternative rock and post punk since 1983. Led by Nick Cave the band also includes current band members Barry Adamson, Martyn P. Casey, Jim Sclavunos, George Vjestica, Thomas Wydler, Conway Savage and Warren Ellis. There have been many other band members who have since gone their own way.
In the last 20 years the band has completed multiple international tours and released 15 studio albums. You can hear the influence of punk rock, no wave, gothic rock and blues in their unique sound although their earlier music including Tender Prey featured a sound that was pure post punk. They also have sounds of garage rock which can be heard in Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! In their latest album to drop you can hear minimal guitar work while synthesizers are heavily used.
Although they are rather old school they are still keeping up with the times and constantly working on new material.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are the Aerosmith or the Rolling Stones of their genre. They have a timeless style because of the fact that it keeps current with both the sounds and the lyrics. Their music is relevant to any era and anyone born in the 70s, 80s, 90s and today.
They have won multiple awards from ARIA and in 2007 Nick was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
