Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds "Where the Wild Roses Grow" (ft. Kylie Minogue) (live video)
Published Sep 15, 2014A small pause in the filming of Nick Cave's pseudo-doc 20,000 Days on Earth at a London club yielded an intimate performance of classic duet "Where the Wild Roses Grow" alongside Kylie Minogue, and you can now see the live video of the beloved murder ballad online.
Set at London's Koko Club, the pair reunited onstage to the surprise of countless fans, who shot back word-for-word the tragic fate of the tune's Elisa Day. Jim Sclavunos lightly brushes the drum skins, Warren Ellis bows out a weeping violin melody, and Cave and Minogue passionately perform the haunting back-and-forth of two characters forever entwined in a bloody, river-set romance.
Throw a rose between your teeth and brace yourself for the closing blow by giving the live vid a look down below.
