Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
With three decades of music in terms of shaping trends and musical preferences, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have a repertoire that few bands can compete with. In 1984, the band released its first album, From Her to Eternity. With previous band mate Mick Harvey and the freshly introduced Blixa Bargeld of the German band, Einstürzende Neubauten, Nick Cave managed to create waves on the music scene. The ten track debut brought Nick and his fellow musician’s into the limelight. From Her to Eternity not only served as a massively successful and vastly appreciated production, it also marked the noticeable evolution of Cave and Harvey.

The two subsequent albums, Your Funeral… My trial and Tender Prey helped cement the bands place in the music industry.
