Berlin 2013 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Admiralspalast, Berlin, Germany; February 13, 2013. Excellent FM broadcast.
For his 15th album, Push The Sky Away, Nick Cave has written one of his loveliest, yet most menacing, songs in We No Who U R. With a relaxing warm piano motif, Cave’s picture of destruction is marked by an insinuating refrain: “And we know who you are/And we know where you live/And we know there’s no need to forgive.”
To promote the album, Cave performed the album this month in sequence, knowing that it would be shared: “We are going to play you our new record… It’s going on the radio so you know what that means… except that people are listening to me right now.” Accompanied by strings and a children’s choir, the live show also features founding member, Barry Adamson (not present since Your Funeral… My Trial, 1986) and Aussie indie stalwart, Ed Kuepper, of the seminal punk band, The Saints.
Garnering hyper-rave reviews, Push The Sky Away is perhaps not as momentous as avid reviewers make it out to be. Cave just knows how to play it up for his fans and it shows in lyrics such as in Mermaids - “She was a catch/We were a match/I was the match that would fire up her snatch.”
It could have been greater if Cave had followed his mellow instincts as the rage noticeably dissipates in the second half of the performance. But Cave prefers to age un-gracefully and he succeeds in parts. - Philip Cheah
