Nick Cave

Following the demise of The Birthday Party, Cave performed in New York with a troupe calling itself The Immaculate Consumptive.


Its members included such underground luminaries as Marc Almond, Clint Ruin, and Lydia Lunch.

In November 1986 Nick Cave released his fourth album with The Bad SeedsYour Funeral – My Trial.

The irony of the title is that on the eve of the album’s release, Nick faced a somewhat tenuous vagrancy charge in New York, and his former Birthday Party compatriot, Tracey Pew, died from a brain haemorrhage.
