………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Nick Cave has been crooning with his group, The Bad Seeds for almost 30 years.  His seedy ballads about religion, violence, sex, and death earned him an induction into the Australian Recording Industry Association’s (ARIA) Hall of Fame in 2007 and have been covered by artists ranging from Johnny Cash to Depeche Mode to Metallica.   He is also an accomplished screenwriter, actor, and novelist. Cave has starred in two films with Brad Pitt: Johnny Suede (1991) and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007).  He also scripted the dark western, The Proposition (2005) and has contributed to over 50 soundtracks including Gas, Food Lodging (1992) with fellow rocker J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., and he published his first novel ‘And the Ass Saw the Angel‘ in 2003.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds recently announced the latest release in a series of re-issues of their classic albums: Let Love In (1994), Murder Ballads(1996) [feat. duets with British rock singer/Cave’s Ex, PJ Harvey, and a Australian pop idol, Kylie Minogue], The Boatman’s Call (1997) [inspired by past relationships with ex-wife Vivian Carneiro and PJ Harvey] and No More Shall We Part (2001) [released after Cave’s rehabilitation from 20 years of heroin and alcohol addiction].  Their eighth, ninth, tenth and eleventh studio albums respectively, the 4-album re-release will be available May 17th 2011, with each album presented in the form of a separate deluxe double-disc Collectors Edition.

These latest releases are the third set of reissues from a series that will ultimately see Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ entire album catalogue digitally re-mastered and remixed for 5.1 Surround Sound for the first time since their original release.

THE CONTEST / GIVEAWAY:

*One winner will receive a package including all 4 of the collectors edition re-releases
(full product details above)

HOW TO ENTER:

Nick Cave was raised Anglican, which explains the apparent influence of The Bible in his work.  He is also considered “The Son” in the Holy Trinity of dark crooners, along with Leonard Cohen (“The Father”), and Tom Waits (“The Holy Ghost”).  These days, Cave has stated that he is not religious and is no longer a Christian, supported by such quotes as : “I’m critical of what religions are becoming, the more destructive they’re becoming.”  Taking such factors into consideration, the following contest will focus around both religion and… you guessed it, destruction.

#1)

Harold Camping is the president of, California-based religious broadcasting network, FAMILY RADIO and a Christian radio broadcaster, who applies mathematical calculation to the Bible in an attempt to predict dates for the end of the world.  His current “end of times” prediction is that the Rapture will fall on May 21, 2011 and that God will completely destroy the Earth and the universe five months later on October 21. [He made a similar prediction about the fate of the world back in September of 1994].

Let’s assume that Camping’s prediction/version is accurate, this time around, and that you are not one of the chosen few to ascend with righteousness.  Tell us what you would do during the 5 months that you are awaiting your imminent demise.  Would you pointlessly try to repent?  On the other hand, maybe you’d try to summon up a merciless demon of your own.  Perhaps, you’d finally start crossing some things off your bucket list or simply take up smoking heroin and recklessly fire a grenade launcher at national monuments.  Whatever it is, just let us know.

#2)

Post your answer in the comment section below.

#3)

There is no part 3.  That’s all there is to the contest.  It’s pretty easy… but you should probably read the fine print.

The Fine Print:

All entries must be received by Saturday May 21st at 11:59 pm to be eligible.
Anyone that has been collected into the heavens to meet with the almighty, by that point, won’t need the prize pack.
Anyone else should have a solid 5 months to enjoy the Nick Cave collection before they are destroyed by immeasurable hardships.

You can enter as many times as you want but, use a valid email so that we can contact you.
Winner’s will be chosen arbitrarily, based on our personal “favorite”, so try to be interesting.
If we are unable to contact the winner in a reasonable amount of time, a new winner will be chosen.

[If you have any intentions to post comments asking us to pick you, or asking when the winner will be announced… how about, just don’t do it?  It’s pretty fucking obnoxious and it won’t help your chances.]

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it’s hard to recall all of the details.

I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn’t actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room… but it wasn’t actually here… it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle.

    Become a blinding ball of fur and claws.

    It would truely depend on what “The Rapture” does to the Earth. I thought when The Rapture was called, all ‘Christians’ that were Right With God were called up to Heaven immediately, I would have to see who goes to Heaven and who is left here on Earth to await Armeggedon. If over half the Earth’s population is suddenly gone, including politicians, military, cops, hell, even my landlord, then I would stock up on food and water and stay in my apartment until the water and electricity stopped working, then steal a tent and camp outdoors and party and have sex with every women left on Earth while I waited for the destruction of Earth. I would steal solar power charging devices to charge my iPod and plug it into a boom box and listen to my remastered Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds music that I loaded into my iPod before the power stopped working. I would break into Walgreens and CVS and steal all the pain killers and any other drugs I could get my hands on and party, party, party, if I wasn’t called to Heaven the first time, I probably wouldn’t make the cut before Armegeddon !!!

  • I would delve into my Nick Cave induced courage, and finally tell that girl i love her. Together we’ll spend the last 4 months trying to build the time machine of all time machines, if unsuccessful we return for one final Bad Seeds concert, and let Nick’s voice blast us all into oblivion.

  • If I were to remain in the hell fires of earth, I know my partner in crime, love of my life that I let slip away would be here too. Instantly after reading that the only thing that comes to mind is Nick Cave and “DEANNA”… I would get us a pair of longer barreled Smith & Wessons, and venture out West in a stolen older tank of a Cadillac, getting lost in every moment whether it be violent or beautiful because we won’t be intending on getting any older. Cheap vodka and cigarettes in hand, we would welcome that final farewell and know it was all worth it.

    & @brian brady haha I work @ CVS. that cracked me up…! All the pill junkies try it whether it be the rapture or not!

  • Heather Hunt

    I would make sure that I have my family around me. If they have been all entered into Rapture and I am left behind, I would spend the rest of my time listening to Nick and carousing with my new found buddies…. evidently my other buddies would be gone and I would be the bad one left. I do believe in an interventionist God and in the end, I believe Nick does too. I would wait to be entered into God’s arms…… and know that he has a sense of humor and would find all of the crazy nuts funny.

  • Eric Holden

    After confirming the news of the rapture being true, I would make my way to the upscale christian homes until I loot enough canned goods, fire arms, fire works, rotten fruit, porn, batteries, and gasoline as I can cram into the first Hummer I can figure out how to hot wire. I would then begin my five month tour of driving around and taunting all the religions that didn’t make the cut (yes I am looking at you Scientology). Probably not the best way to spend ones last days on the planet, but I am sucker for rubbing salt into fresh wounds.

  • I would walk out on my job, say goodbye to everyone I know, throw about four pairs of pants, shoes, and shirts into a backpack and hit the road…I would travel to as many continents as possible, eating local foods, smoking local herb, drinking local libations and meeting as many people as possible. Unrestrained by the weight of “normal” life, I would care little about monetary gains – instead I would simply focus on doing that which I was unable to do in the my previous life. At this point, there would be no doubt how short life is, and there would be no reason to waste a moment of it

  • Kill Whitey!

  • Matthew Tilton

    I would not change a damn thing.

  • Helen Halloran

    I would cash in all of my stock, IRAs, 401(k), quit my job and start traveling & spending time with as many of my loved ones as possible. I’d also spend a lot more time playing music, finish the recording my band is working on, and eat as many varied & delicious foods as I possibly can. I would also try to read some of the many books I have lying around that I always meant to either read or finish, and seek out some of the movies I’ve been meaning to see. In other words, live every day like it’s my last, which is kind of how we should be living our lives anyway.

  • Masturbate. With intent.
