    Grinderman接受采访的片段:

    AnOther: How does getting older change your outlook as an artist? Are you more productive because of an increased awareness of mortality?
    Nick Cave: I'm not sure there's a lot going for getting old. I mean, if anyone out there is thinking that they should give it a go, I would advise them against it. 
    Martyn Casey: (Laughs) It's not to do with a midlife crisis, it's just a life crisis.
    Warren Ellis: Man, it just takes that long to learn how to play... I used to dream about being able to play like I'm playing now.

    Warren Ellis太好笑了!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AnOther: Lyrically, Grinderman 2 has a surreal quality that makes me think of Burroughs's cut-up technique – where does that come from?
    Jim Sclavunos: It's not like Grinderman is better than The Bad Seeds, it's just a whole new band, and it's equally as satisfying – who knows what direction it is going to take now...

    Nick Cave: There's something that goes on in Grinderman that has a kind of dream logic to it and I think that's really effective. I really love Heathen Child, for example, because I don't feel locked in by a narrative... I like it that the song takes a kind of U-turn at the end, and suddenly becomes about something quite scary.

    AnOther: There's a lot of sex and death in Grinderman though, isn't there? It's pretty much all sex and death...
    Martyn Casey: It's a lot like one of those rats in a maze that have been shot up with cocaine.
    Warren Ellis: ... or a gerbil in a bag on crystal meth with its little teeth going gnik,gnik,gnik.

    真是活宝!!!!!哈好笑!!!!!

    AnOther: But what you are doing is pretty extreme in terms of rock'n'roll. It seems like you are  the antidote to something like Lady Gaga...
    Jim Sclavunos: Right on. You are 100 per cent correct. We are the antidote.
    Nick Cave: For me, Grinderman has just totally opened up songwriting and it has affected The Bad Seeds in a really positive way. That's as far as it goes. The whole purpose of this for me is just to somehow work out a way to keep writing, and that comes from a sort of protestant duty I feel towards songwriting. That's much more interesting to me than bringing society to its knees and scaring the kids.
    Warren Ellis: The longer you're around, the more you get taken for granted... 
    Nick Cave: ... which is actually personally liberating: that on some level there's no point in trying to impress anyone any more. I think that the more that's happened, the closer the music I'm involved in has become the music that I actually listen to. For me, it's always important that there's an element of the divine in the writing process – what happens within my imaginative world doesn't apply in the same way in my personal world.

    AnOther: Would you say music is the ultimate tool for transcendence? 
    Nick Cave: I think it's fair enough to say that there are things that we should be doing or that we shouldn't be doing. And when you're doing those things that you should be doing, you do get swept away, and it feels like the right thing. Time is different and you get lost in it – you transcend the mundane... and you float among the stars.

    Nick最后一句Time is different and you get lost in it - you transcend the mundance... and you float among the stars。太精确了,我只是一个爱乐人,每次听了好歌或者新歌,我都会很满足!!!真是我生活的必需品啊!!!
