Nick Cave Curates Awesome Australian All Tomorrow’s Parties

nick08340Yeah, that Flaming Lips-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties in New York in September will be wild and wacky (especially Dirty Three doing all of Ocean Songs). And the Breeders-curated ATP in the U.K. in May sounds intriguing (haven’t seen Throwing Muses live since 1991). But if MAGNET allowed for time off, we’d be on a plane this weekend to Australia for the ATP curated by The Man We Wish We Were: Nick Cave. Aside from Cave’s Bad Seeds, there’s Spiritualized, Robert Forster, Michael Gira, James “Blood” Ulmer, Bill Callahan, Dead Meadow, Silver Apples, Dirty Three (doing all of Ocean Songs; take that, Wayne Coyne), the Saints (doing all of (I’m) Stranded) and many more.

The current issue of MAGNET marks the second time Cave has been on the cover (you can order it here). The first was back in 2001, when writer Jonathan Valania traveled with Cave & The Bad Seeds to Denmark. Read it here.
