Nick Cave’s side project Grinderman at Electric Picnic 2008. Stradbally, Laois, Ireland. Grinderman have a more raw, garage band sound than the Bads seeds, of which Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn P. Casey, and Jim Sclavunos are all members.

Grinderman were one of the highlights of the Electric Picnic – and were very clearly enjoying themselves – there was not of the reserve sometimes apparent during Bad Seeds gig, Cave was very much engaged with the audience, and the crowd were loving it!
