nick cave & the bad seeds - Kicking Against The Pricks
The third album from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, re-released as part of Mute's Nick Cave reissue series. "In 1986, the year Kicking Against The Pricks - a cover album - was released, then 28-year-old Nick Cave was the object of both reverence and antagonism in the contemporary press. In interviews he's baited, held up as genius, soothsayer and arrogant, autistic nutcase. "Kicking against the pricks" is a biblical lift, referring to an ox kicking in irritation at the sharpened rod - the goad or prick - used by the driver when tilling soil. It would seem there were plenty of goads and an abundance of pain to deal with in Cave's life. Due to a lack of new songs, as Cave was in the middle of writing his novel And The Ass Saw the Angel, a covers album paying tribute to everyone from Johnny Cash to Velvet Underground looked like the thing to do. In the end it would break him into a much wider audience."
