Grinderman – “Super Heathen Child” (Feat. Robert Fripp)
When I posted Grinderman’s “Heathen Child” I mentioned that — in addition to the album version — there’s a “Super” rendition of the song featuring an extended guitar solo form King Crimson and etc.’s Robert Fripp. As suspected, Fripp’s playing offers soulful/ecstatic accompaniment to Nick Cave’s sermonizing. (Though not quite as ecstatic as the original + its NSFW video.)
Grinderman 2 is out 9/13 in Europe via Mute and 9/14 in the U.S. via Anti-. The 12″ single’s out 9/6.
