BIZARRE FESTIVAL 1996
good ship funke
off the back of their stunning ‘murder ballads’, their performance at Bizarre Festival on 17th August 1996 captured their dark, brooding sound perfectly – and then pj Harvey turns up at the end.
their set includes classics from their back catalogue such as ‘The Weeping Song’ and ‘The Mercy Seat’. Nick and the Seeds toured Europe, Asia and South America in support of the album, and it is their entire performance at the Bizarre Festival that is included here. As a grand finale, the band were joined by PJ Harvey - with whom Cave was romantically linked at the time - for a rendition of ‘Henry Lee’. As a bonus feature, a seven minute ‘chat’ between one-time-collaborators Nick and Kylie Minogue from 1996 is also included.
