Linkage: Nick Cave ends Grinderman, plus Stone Roses, Peter Murphy, Talk Talk, Throbbing Gristle

A collection of some interesting links we stumbled across this week:

Nick Cave Announces Grinderman Are ‘Over’ The chief Bad Seed apparently has pulled the plug on his garage-blues side project after two well-received albums, announcing on stage at an Australian music festival last night, “That’s it for Grinderman. It’s over. … See you all in another 10 years when we’ll be even older and uglier.” [NME]

The Stone Roses Sign Major-Label Record Deals The reunited Madchester legends showed they’re serious about recording a new album, taking to Facebook yesterday with this message: “The Stone Roses are pleased to announce that they have signed a record contract with Universal Music in London and with Columbia Records in New York.” [Facebook]

A Day In The Life Of Peter Murphy Photographer Doug Seymour spent a day last month with the former Bauhaus leader before, during and after his show at Philadelphia’s Trocadero Theatre, capturing intimate moments such as Murphy meeting a fan before the concert, going over the night’s setlist with his band and his post-show moments.

‘The Spirit Of Talk Talk’ Book In The Works A new book is due next year celebrating the music and artwork of the celebrated British band, with original sketches of James Marsh’s art, hand-written lyrics from Mark Hollis and tributes from Depeche Mode’s Alan Wilder, Grandaddy’s Jason Lytle and Pink Floyd’s Richard Wright.

Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti Discuss Throbbing Gristle Reissues The U.K. web magazine offers up a half-hour audio recording of the two Throbbing Gristle members talking about their new reissues and how they put them together, as well as offering their memories of their late bandmate and friend Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson.
