THE FLAMING LIPS And Their 13-Year Old Fan NELL SMITH Cover NICK CAVE

Daily electricity to load your batteries

12 November 2021

Artists: THE FLAMING LIPS and NELL SMITH

Nell is a 13-year old fan of Oklahoma’s eccentric Lips.
Frontman Wayne Coyne spotted her at one point as she
attended several gigs with her father. They got in touch
and after Coyne found out that she’s a singer he proposed
her to work with the band on a Nick Cave tribute album he
already had in mind for some time.

They got all in the studio and the result is a 9-song Nick Cave
covers album baptized When The Viaduct Looms covers LP,
with Nell on vocals.

Release: 26 November 2021

Coyne: “It is always great to meet excited, young creative people.
With Nell we could see she is on a journey and thought it would be
fun to join her for a while and see if we could get things going. It was
a great way to connect with her and help harness her cool attitude
to making music.”

Nell: “I hadn’t heard of Nick Cave but Wayne suggested that we should
start with an album of his cover versions, and then look at recording some
of my own songs later. It was cool to listen and learn about Nick Cave and
pick the songs we wanted to record.”

Nick Cave: “I’m a fan.”

A first cover Girl In Amber was shared a few weeks ago and now we get an
amazing interpretation of one of my all-time Cave favorites The Ship Song
(my wedding song 12 years ago). Smith‘s vocals are just splendid…

22 September 2021

Dear Nick,

My wife and I wish you a fantastic 64th birthday
and on this occasion we want to thank you once
again for writing our wedding song. The lyrics
reflected exactly what we felt then, and still
now.

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down

Turn Up The Volume’s Favorite Valentine’s Day Classic Cracker

Top singles from the past…

14 February 2021

The Ship Song by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds is my all-time favorite
Valentine‘s Day lullaby. It was my and my magnificent wife’s wedding
song, back in 2009.

We’re both not fans of crazy Valentine’s Day commercialism,
but Nick Cave can come around any day, also today…

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

SOULFUL SUNDAY – Living Legend NICK CAVE Playing My Wedding Song…

Feel good vibes for the laziest day of the week…

A heartwarming masterstroke. My wedding song. Thanks, Mr. Cave.

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

We talk about it all night long
We define our moral ground
But when I crawl into your arms
Everything, it comes tumbling down

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Your face has fallen sad now
For you know the time is nigh
When I must remove your wings
And you, you must try to fly

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

Come sail your ships around me (Come sail your ships around me)
And burn your bridges down (And burn your bridges down)
We make a little history, baby (We make a little history, baby)
Every time you come around (Every time you come around)

From the magical album The Good Son ( his sixth album – released in 1990)…
