Nick Cave Album, Tour

New owners for The Wire

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' next album is titled No More Shall We Part and will be released April 10. It's been four years since Cave and company's last album of new material, The Boatman's Call. Produced by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Tony Cohen at Abbey Road Studios last fall, the new album's 12 songs include the title track, "As I Sat Sadly by Her Side,' "God Is in the House," "Gates to the Garden" and "Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow." Anna and Kate McGarrigle guest on several songs. On first listen, No More Shall We Part comes across as a powerful, emotionally rich work. Cave will play a handful of U. S. dates in March. He's at Chicago's Park West March 22 and 23, L.A.'s Wiltern March 25, San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts March 26 and 27, Denver's Paramount Theater March 28 and Seattle's Paramount Theater March 29. ... The February issue of our favorite music magazine, The Wire, contains an editorial entitled "Declaration of Independence," signed by the new owners of the magazine, who also happen to be the six current full-time staff members. "Ownership of The Wire by the people who actually work to produce the thing month in, month out represents the best possible news for both the magazine and its readers," they write." ...We remain committed to a global perspective on the music of our time; our content is never driven by PR or the bottom line; and we refuse to underestimate the intelligence of our readers." The Wire consistently covers important, though often not popular, artists. [Monday, Feb. 26, 2001]
