CAS Album of the Month Club: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds ‘Murder Ballads’

Join us on Sunday May 23rd for our Album of the Month Club featuring Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Murder Ballads. For those that haven’t joined us, it is like a book club get-together on Zoom but for….albums!

In some ways, Murder Ballads is the record Nick Cave was waiting to make his entire career. Death and violence have always haunted his music, even when he wasn’t explicitly singing about the subject. On Murder Ballads, he sings about nothing but death in the most gruesome, shocking fashion. Divided between originals and covers, the record is awash in both morbid humor and sobering horror, as the Bad Seeds provide an appropriate backdrop for the carnage, alternating between blues, country, and lounge-jazz.

On Sunday morning, Colleen will send all participants a ‘Musical Lead-Up Playlist’ that sets the musical context for the album and will include influences and contemporaries. This is to be listened to in your own time before the meeting takes place.

Doors open at 7:45 and after we all greet one another, Colleen tells the story behind the album. We then listen to the album in real time on whichever device or format that is available to you (vinyl, CD, streaming).

Once the album finishes, we unmute ourselves and have a discussion about the album and our listening experience. This is a great way to connect with people, especially for those of us who are in Lockdown and I truly hope you can join us. If you are a subscribed Supporter or Punter, you can always upgrade your subscription to Member status and you will not be charged twice. And if you are new to Classic Album Sundays and are considering signing up, do so this week as then you can come along to our Pub Quiz on Friday May 7th.

Our events really resonate with people and one of our newest members sent this testimonial after her first Album Club last month:

“I wanted to thank you for the warm welcome and the knowledge there are friendly like minded people across the world out there and you brought us all together through a shared love of music. That is awesome. I have been mostly alone through the pandemic (am single, live alone – and yes do have the requisite cats to complete the stereotype!😂) My 25 + year career has been in events, currently in the West End of London so in my “normal” life I would be out at least 3/4 times a week. That has all obviously completely stopped for me and it has been a somewhat of a struggle mentally, music has kept me sane and Sunday’s event really helped my sanity. I truly hope to meet you in real life at some point to say thank you in person and look forward to engaging in more events.” – Angela

CAS Album Inspirations: Gilles Peterson on Sun Ra

Gilles Peterson speaks with CAS founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy about the influence of Sun Ra and why he believes “Sun Ra was the man, the ultimate artist for any vinyl collector”. Sun Ra was a one-off in the annals of jazz. As author Robert L. Campbell describes, “He claimed to be the last of the swing band leaders, yet dosed classic songs with LSD. He wrote poetry about the “coming space age” and claimed to be a citizen of Saturn. He dressed himself and his band in gold- lame and lectured on the Creator’s message to the cruel and deceitful Earthman. He named himself after an Egyptian God. Was this guy for real? Sun Ra was very much for real.”
