Australian musician and author Nick Cave was the lead singer of Aussie post-punk band The Birthday Party in the early 80s. They split in 1984 due to personal difficulties aggravated by drug and alcohol abuse, with Cave and multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey teaming up to form Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Each of their albums have been hits with critics, but less successful with the public at large. Tender Prey (1988) and The Good Son (1990) were particularly praised, while Let Love In (1994) reached No.12 in the UK album charts. Murder Ballads (1996) got four places higher, and featured a duet with Kylie Minogue called "Where The Wild Roses Grow" that was a chart hit in several countries. The Boatman's Call (1997) was considered by many to be their best release yet. In 2004, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds released their 13th studio album, the double-disc Abbatoir Blues/ The Lyre of Orpheus. Mojo Magazine (UK) and The Age (Australia) both named it their Album Of The Year, and other critics were enthusiastic too. Although the band haven't officially split up, Cave and three of the Bad Seeds have embarked on a side project called Grinderman.
