i’m really not sure how someone who contains the emotional and intellectual capacity to call nick cave their favorite artist can come online and sincerely call people “bitch made pussies” in the year 2019, but the world is large and people contain multitudes.

Lost my brother in a tragedy this year. This record has flattened me.

I don’t know what all the lyrics mean, but I do understand these.

“And I’m just waiting now, for my time to come
And I’m just waiting now, for peace to come”

That describes my life now. Thank you, Nick

Man it bums me out to come here, looking for a good discussion about a dense piece of work, only to find all of this dumb, misogynistic BS.

Also: Saying “this has nothing to do with you” doesn’t really fly in a public comment board. Come on, guys.

“What we glimpsed in songs like “I Need You” and “Distant Sky” and “Skeleton Tree” is now expanded upon across Ghosteen’s two halves.”

It’s like I said. A little over two years had passed since Push The Sky Away was released when Arthur passed, not all of which was spent working on Skeleton Tree because of the tour for PTSA. So, as I mentioned before, a lot of the music was written when he died, but a lot of it was still yet to be written, and it has a clear effect on the album, right down to the multiple instances he directly mentions his son and losing him. No one said ST was all about losing his son, but it’s there, both in how the music was written and the narrative surrounding it, for Cave and his fans.

I knew your bitch ass would start it up again, why? Because that’s what bitch made pussies do. “let it go”, right? “time to move on”, right? You’re such a petty and insufferable sack of steaming shit.

I’m really not sure what makes you feel the need to comment on this when it has nothing to do with you. Since you interjected (again), the bitch made pussies thing is kind of an inside joke. True, it stems from me, and true, I think he’s a bitch made pussy, but I only used that here because of the inside joke. Blochead and I were talking about it on Twitter the other day. In it’s defense, bitch made pussy is quite the insult; it infers that you’re not only a pussy, but you’re a pussy that was created by a bitch causing you to have bitch DNA as well. So, the person and their mom gets insulted simultaneously. It’s especially relevant here because I wouldn’t hear a fucking peep out of cokeparty in person, which is very pussy-ish and clearly makes him bitch made.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR-IN-CHIEF’S CHOICE

Not that it matters at all in the larger sense, but to the maybe dozen it does matter to (since about half of them are here commenting (ha)), we/I don’t have anything to do with this re-release of Silver (sorry, this is charles from the wrens).

It’s a music business cliche` – the orig. label, Grass, was bought by the Meltzers in ’95, became Wind-Up, later bought, I think by EMI, then by Universal (or that bought EMI or something), then Bicycle bought the Grass (and I guess, Wind-Up) back catalog, then Bicycle was merged into or bought by Concord, then Concord ditched the Wind-up holdings or something and so now Concord’s reissue sorta enterprise, Craft, is putting out bits of the catalog (along w/ a host of actually valuable recordings – ha).

So yeah, I had really wanted to re-do these ourselves after this new one comes out (which yes, that this isn’t actually a master-planned sign of anything aside, will be 2020) esp. since there would presumably be more interest generally.
And because after I met with Meltzer in about ’05 in an effort to get these back (which he declined but did agree to erase all $70k-some of band debt, most of which was typical music industry preposterousness), they went ahead and re-released the first two records, and then like two years later Absolutely Kosher, our friend Cory who we did the meadowlands with, re-re-released them. Both outings prob. moved…I don’t know since there’s no accounting from Grass/Wind-Up/EMI/Univ./Bicycle/Concord/Craft (I sorta love doing that)…maybe a hundred copies?

See? Complicated AND boring. Deadly. In short, not our/my plan, we won’t make anything on them, they’ll sell in the dozens, rightfully and as I said on Twitter, honestly, the album is an abomination unto the Lord, with like three good songs (all Kevin’s) and gut-wrenching production (by me). Just stream it. It’ll only take one time – ha.

With apologies for length, my first post!
