'Palaces Of Montezuma' out in March

They've given us Jim Sclavunos' buttock cheeks, lazer-spouting eyes and a gelatinous space squid - who knows what Grinderman will come up with as a video for new single 'Palaces Of Montezuma'. After all, speaking to the Quietus about the track last year Nick Cave painted a filthy picture: "Well, actually I'll tell you something else about that song. There's a line about the spinal cord of JFK, wrapped in Marilyn Monroe's negligee and someone told me that JFK had a bad back. And the thing that he used to like to do was to take his women from behind... in the bath... and hold their head under the water... he liked the kind of struggle that went on! Damn!" DAMN... indeed Mr Cave! The single will be out on 12" and download, and our John reckons it could be Grinderman's biggest hit to date. Grinderman also play the excellent I'll Be Your Mirror event at Ally Pally on July 24th.
