Murder ballads

Woo-hoo! Sorry, that wasn't the right reaction. Um, draw the velvet curtains, light the candles and crack open the red wine - Nick Cave's new double LP Abattoir Blues / The Lyre Of Orpheus is set for release in September. Is it just me or is there a hint of knowing self-parody in that title?

(Thanks to No Rock 'N' Roll Fun, an old SWSL favourite that I'd drifted away from for reasons that are quite beyond me - suffice to say it's as excellent as ever.)
