Live Gigs: ATP 2009 Curated by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds @ Cockatoo Island


So here’s part two following on from yesterday’s post. We are now traveling north from Mount Buller Ski Resort in Victoria to Cockatoo Island in New South Wales which is somewhere in the middle of Sydney Harbor? Part three is coming tomorrow morning! Something to look forward too, maybe or not?

NC with promoter Barry Hogan doing some PR on Cockatoo Island before all this taken place!

Below are even more live clips as found on YouTube and also this post some albums by the acts that you can stream on spotify. Worth to note before going further the great Aussie indie rock legends Hoss is not on Bandcamp or Spotify, lucky I’ve still got them on CD pity if you don’t? The Neck new album at this point was Silverwater seems to be missing too, got that on CD too! Hunter Dienna was the most newish act on the line-up who just had released an EP but I can’t find it anywhere online and didn’t seem to do anything after this. Conway Savage’s solo albums are missing as well, him and The Necks are on YouTube but I know Hoss doesn’t have much on that too! Everyone else is pretty easy to find on Bandcamp or those other ones. That’s another reason for two posts, just to see what’s on what site? Does anyone else care? Anyway here’s the playing time as still listed on the very old ATP website, it does have links to all the artist’s myspace pages! So it’s in a different order, minus some acts on the hill in Victoria. The second day all the same bands/artists, I’m pretty sure all just played in the very same order:

Amazing how little live footage were filmed/upload at this time, filming everything on your mobile phones at gigs maybe hadn’t taken off just yet? But some of the sound quality isn’t that great from both today’s and yesterday’s posts live clips but it’s what I could find! After all that did anyone listen/watch one, some or any of them or maybe none of them?


Couple more cool photos I’ve dug up:

NC waving his arms about with Ed Kuepper joining in, it’s members of The Saints, Laughing Clowns and Bad Seeds backstage!
NC and Woz in the crowd watching someone… it doesn’t fuckin’ say!
