Top 50 Tracks of 2010: Grinderman – Bellringer Blues

December 11, 2010

22. Grinderman – Bellringer Blues.mp3

Pompadoured beanpole Nick Cave has never sounded more vital than with his rockier new project Grinderman. All the love and all the hate of his work with the Bad Seeds gets streamlined into a caustic recasting of the three-chord simplicity that is the primordial stew of rock n roll.

It’s still the good ol’ debbil blues, but the guitars twist and loop back on themselves while Cave opines on the knowledge of good and the evil it results in.

Grind here, man…

The rest of the Top 50.
