NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS
ELEVEN CLASSIC ALBUMS TO BE REISSUED BEGINNING DECEMBER 16, 2014
Eleven classic Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds albums dating back to 1984’s critically-acclaimed debut From Her To Eternity are to appear on heavyweight, 180g vinyl for the first time.
Four albums will be released December 16, 2014 with the remaining titles to follow in 2015. The campaign follows the recent acquisition of the Mute Records catalogue by BMG.
Each album has been re-mastered in a process overseen by former Bad Seed and founder member, the multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey. All album artwork reflects the original release from the cover to the printed inner sleeves.
BMG Director of Masters and Product Management Didier Dehauteur said, “The Bad Seeds catalogue is a precious piece of rock history. We are determined to deliver a set of reissues which genuinely pay tribute to a seminal band.”
The following titles will be released on December 16, 2014:
From Her To Eternity – Single LP
(Original Release Date June 18, 1984)
Recorded in London Studios The Garden and Trident, From Her To Eternity marked the debut of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds after the break-up of Nick Cave’s former band The Birthday Party. Features Blixa Bargeld, of Berlin’s Einstuerzende Neubauten, on guitar. Said Cave at the time, “I don’t really think he knows how to play in the conventional sense at all. He just makes these incredible sounds.”
The Firstborn is Dead – Single LP
(Original Release Date June 3, 1985)
Album number two was recorded in Berlin. Co-produced by Flood and the band, it was rich with references to the blues and bluesmen, the American South, and especially to Elvis Presley. Soundsdescribed the album as “the most evocative blues record for years.”
Kicking Against The Pricks – Single LP
(Original Release Date Aug 18, 1986)
The band’s third album was a collection of cover versions of songs ranging from “I’m Gonna Kill That Woman” (John Lee Hooker) to “By The Time I Get To Phoenix” (Jimmy Webb) to “Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart” (Roger Greenaway, Roger Cook). Said Cave, “They were all done for different reasons. Some songs were tributes…other songs we didn’t think the song was ever done particularly well in the first place. Some songs had just haunted my childhood, like ‘The Carnival Is Over’ (Tom Springfield), which I always loved.”
Your Funeral…My Trial – Double LP
(Original Release Date Nov 3, 1986)
First released as a double EP, Your Funeral…My Trial has a notable melancholy tone. Cave himself later said, “(This is) my favorite of the records we’ve done, is very special to me and a lot of amazing things happened, musically, in the studio. There are some songs on that record that as far as I’m concerned are just about perfect as we can get really – songs like ‘The Carny,’ ‘Your Funeral, My Trial,’ and ‘Stranger Than Kindness.’”

EXPERIENCE PAUL McCARTNEY LIVE IN CONCERT LIKE NEVER BEFORE
JAUNT VR APP MAKES VIRTUAL REALITY CONTENT AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME
Completely immersive VR footage of Paul McCartney’s Historic Candlestick Park concert ready for download now
Earlier this year Paul McCartney made history when he performed the last concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, the very same stadium that saw The Beatles last public concert 48 years ago, almost to the day.
A new app launched today by Jaunt allows fans to relive the magic of that night—more accurately experience it for the first time in a completely immersive 360-degree virtual environment offering access to Paul McCartney like never before: the Jaunt VR app puts you right there in the crowd, onstage, backstage, or even right by Paul’s side in the midst of the climactic pyro, as he performs “Live and Let Die” live at Candlestick.
In addition to his obviously peerless status as a musical legend and fearless innovator, Paul McCartney has never stopped looking for new and interesting ways to reach audiences, from his work on this year’s single biggest entertainment release, the video game “Destiny,” to this collaboration with Jaunt enabling fans to experience his music and live performance in a previously unimaginable new way.
Jaunt, the technology company behind the app, is building the hardware and software to make truly immersive cinematic VR possible. This special footage of the world’s revered musician marks the launch of their first publicly available content. Jaunt is making this revolutionary experience freely available for consumers to download and view for the first time. The content is available now through Jaunt’s app on Google Play for Google Cardboard and Android Phones, and will be coming soon to Samsung’s Gear VR and the Oculus Rift.
Paul’s performance of “Live and Let Die” was filmed using state of the art technology – Jaunt’s proprietary 360 degree, stereoscopic 3D cameras and 3D sound-field microphones. Viewers will experience a completely new level of immersion: complete freedom to look in any direction and experience every moment of the performance in true stereoscopic 3D with reactive, omnidirectional audio.
“The concert at Candlestick put Sir Paul McCartney in front of 70,000 live fans, and with our technology and the launch of our app, we’re opening up this access to many more,” said Jens Christensen, CEO of Jaunt. “We’re creating a completely new medium for entertainment. This is just the first step of our broader mission to bring viewers immersive access to the latest concerts, movies, sporting events and more through virtual reality.”
“Live and Let Die” is the first of these recordings to be released by Jaunt, and it also marks the very first public release of content in Jaunt’s cinematic VR library.
Jaunt, which emerged from stealth in early 2014, delivers a completely new way to present and experience media. The Jaunt platform makes use of advanced algorithms and computational photography software to enable the creation of seamless, omnidirectional 3D experiences. The company will continue to focus its efforts on enabling top content producers to create a diverse array of cinematic VR experiences that will be available for consumers to view and download across many platforms.
In another upcoming McCartney first is the aforementioned release of “Hope,” a track Paul wrote and recorded exclusively for the end credits of video game “Destiny,” the first time Paul has ever composed for a video game.
Consumers can now download Jaunt’s cinematic VR recording of Paul’s “Live and Let Die” for Google Play. To download, visit: http://www.jauntvr.com/content
Jaunt is developing the hardware, software, tools, and applications to enable cinematic VR and put the power of virtual reality in the hands of today’s best content creators. Jaunt’s algorithms for complex computational photography allow content producers to create incredible immersive 360 degree, stereoscopic 3-D, cinematic VR experiences using existing production software. The company’s investors include Highland Capital Partners, Google Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Peter Gotcher, Blake Krikorian, and British Sky Broadcasting (corporate.sky.com).

PHILIP SELWAY PREMIERES NEW VIDEO FOR “AROUND AGAIN”
NEW YORK CITY PERFORMANCE AT LE POISSON ROUGE CONFIRMED FORAPRIL 10, 2015
TICKETS ON SALE NOW
WEATHERHOUSE OUT NOW ON BELLA UNION
FOO FIGHTERS SONIC HIGHWAYS AUSTIN APPEARANCE POSTPONED
“a sweeping suite full of moody psychedelic arrangements” – Rolling Stone
“a pop record with an artful touch that further develops his tender emotional spin on the expansively moody sounds” – Stereogum
“Selway’s distorted croon ricocheting off dubby synth wobbles and oceanic guitar pings… he sounds reinvigorated” – Relix
Philip Selway is excited to premiere the new video for the track “Around Again” off his stellar second album, Weatherhouse (Bella Union). The “Around Again” visuals retain the dreamy, mystical nature of Philip’s previous videos for “Coming Up For Air” and “It Will End In Tears”. The video, directed by the Spanish film collective NYSU, features a pivoting camera that follows a woman’s circuitous path as she leaves various items and poses in her wake, resulting in a completely altered setting. Watch the video here.
Having stunned the audience in studio and at home with his recent Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon performance of “It Will End In Tears,” Philip will at long last bring his solo works to life on a New York City stage with a performance at the esteemed Le Poisson Rouge on April 10, 2015. Tickets for his headlining set are available here.

Due to a family matter, Foo Fighters regrettably must postpone Friday’s appearance in Austin for their Sonic Highways screening and Austin City Limits taping.
The band sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience and promises to make it up when they return to Austin on Thursday, November 20th, 2014. All passes for the original engagement will be honored.

PAUL MCCARTNEY ARCHIVE COLLECTION: WINGS REISSUES OF CLASSIC ALBUMS VENUS AND MARS AND AT THE SPEED OF SOUND OUT TODAY
FORMATS INCLUDE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED MATERIAL
The official reissues of Wings’ classic albums Venus and Mars and At The Speed of Sound (MPL/Concord Music Group) are out today as the latest releases in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection.
Both albums are available in a variety of physical and digital formats. Starting with a 2-disc (2 CD) Standard Edition, the first CD features the original remastered album and the second CD includes bonus audio made up of material including demos and unreleased tracks. The 3-disc (2CD, 1DVD) Deluxe Edition is housed in a hardback book featuring unpublished photographs, new interviews with Paul, material from Paul’s archives and expanded track-by-track information. The deluxe version bonus DVD is comprised of filmed material from around the time of each release, some of which has never been seen before. The albums are also be available on special gatefold vinyl editions (vinyl editions include a download card). Digitally, Venus and Mars and At The Speed of Sound are available as both standard and deluxe versions – including Mastered for iTunes and Hi-Res formats.
Wings are one of the most successful acts the UK has ever produced, achieving no less than 14 US Top 10 hits and 12 Top 10 hits in the UK. Following 1973’s Band on the Run the mid ‘70s were a commercial heyday for Wings. Venus and Mars, the band’s fourth studio album was released in May 1975 ahead of the legendary Wings Over the World tour. Preceded by the US Number One single “Listen To What The Man Said,” Venus and Mars hit the Number One spot in the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic and went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide to date. At The Speed of Sound was recorded in the midst of the same tour and released in March 1976. In the US it enjoyed the same chart success as its predecessor. Including the international smash hit single “Silly Love Songs,” the album went on to become Paul’s most successful American chart album spending seven consecutive weeks at Number One. In the UK it charted at Number Two, narrowly missing out on the top spot. Sales to date exceed 3.5 million worldwide.
As with all the Archive Collection, Paul has personally supervised all aspects of the reissues. The remastering work was done at Abbey Road by the same team who has worked on all the reissues as well as the Beatles’ catalogue.
Since launching the Paul McCartney Archive Collection in 2010, Paul has received two GRAMMY Awards for the releases. In 2012 he picked up Best Historical Album for Band on the Run and this year Wings over America picked up an award (Best Boxed or Special Edition Package) on the same night that Paul set a personal best by picking up five awards in just one night. In 2013 RAM was nominated for Best Historical Album.
