Grinderman: No Time For Girly-Men

We're not going to lie to you. At least not that often.

We have a revolving set of heroes here at GutterCandy and Nick Cave is this week's model. Today's hypothesis is that Nick's best work comes when he's thinking with the small, not the big head.

And thus: his latest outfit, Grinderman!

 "C'mon Warren, we can still make last call!"

Literary Nick is as boring as heaven in Paradise Lost, so we'll take sweating, swearing, bleeding, blowing, lapping, runting, rooting, and howling Nick any day.

The Grindermen on Jimmy Fallon is exhibit A through Z of the triumph of the visceral over the cerebral (performance starts at 35:30).
