Elliot Covers "Christina, The Astonishing" by Nick Cave for his "BadSeed TeeVee" Youtube contest
Nick Cave is one of the foremost masters of songwriting and performance that we have living and working today. "Christina, The Astonishing" is one of these rare tracks that takes mythology, spirituality, devotion, and disgust and manages to make a sweet lullaby out of it. I wanted to transmogrify Cave's beautiful rendition of awe into something electrified into black negativity.
Nick Cave was generous enough to review all of the contestants (fans who covered his tracks) and leave a few remarks for each one. Regarding my cover he said this version was: "the seriously pissed-off, wigged-out Christina the Astonishing."
Check it out and enjoy:
