songs of love and hate

Sorry all, no substantial mid-week update this time around. I’d like to say it’s my new job, with the 10+ hour days that it brings, but it probably has as much to do with purchasing 30 Rock Season 5 on DVD and watching almost the entire thing in a couple of sittings. Mea culpa.

To tide you all over, here’s my latest Bad Seeds mixtape. I’ve shown a little less discipline this time, and you’ll need a 90 minute tape this time around (we’re over forty minutes a side here). The songs are from albums I’ve discussed over the last couple of weeks and give moderately equal billing to ’90 to ’96’s releases. Side 1 is a broad cross-section of the Cave’s output over that half-decade and generally gives the softer side of things. The reverse provides lust, violence and jagged vitriol: change sides depending on your mood. 

Side 1:
The Ship Song
Loom of the Land
Straight to You
The Weeping Song
Nobody’s Baby Now
I Let Love In
Henry Lee

Side 2:
Do You Love Me?
The Hammer Song
Brother, My Cup Is Empty
The Ballad of Robert Moore & Betty Coltrane
Lovely Creature
Cocks ‘n’ Asses
Jack the Ripper

For those who weren’t paying close attention last week, ‘The Ballad…’ was first released on Where The Wild Roses Grow, but you’re better off tracking it down on B-Sides and Rarities. ‘Cocks ‘n’ Asses’, b-side to The Weeping Song single, is on the same compilation.
