Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

A series of short films are being made to accompany the reissuing of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds entire back catalogue.

From Her To Eternity, The First Born Is Dead, Kicking Against The Pricks and Your Funeral My Trial are to be digitally remastered and remixed in full 5.1 surround sound and released at the end of the year with more released throughout 2009.

Each super-dooper deluxe collector’s edition will include the remastered stereo album, the new surround mix, the b-sides from the singles, exclusive sleeve notes and a specially commissioned documentary by acclaimed artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.

This epic film-making project will be touring the globe looking for fans who are willing to interviewed talking about their favourite band.

Taking in London, New York, Melbourne and Berlin, Forsyth and Pollard will be looking for people who feel they have a connection to the band's music, or a particular song.

Each film is likely to be a powerful montage of people chatting directly into the camera about their experiences with the band’s work. From the famous to the infamous and not-so-famous, everyone will have a chance to have their say.

The artists already have a history of working with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and have spent the last six months working with them on several projects. They have produced four promo videos for the new album Dig, Lazarus Dig!!!, some live studio footage and a set of seven one minute 'seance' clips which have been broadcast on YouTube.
