Kicking Against the Pricks is the third album released by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. First released in 1986, the album is a collection of cover versions. The title is a reference to a biblical quote from acts 9, verse 5 from Acts of the Apostles: The album marked the Bad Seeds debut of drummer Thomas Wydler, expanding the Bad Seeds line-up to Cave, Wydler, Mick Harvey, Blixa Bargeld and Barry Adamson.

Don't let the sun go down Said the man with the fire, firing the furnace I been buried in the snow And I keep on firing, keep on firing, keep on firing, Firing the furnace. Oh don't talk to me Said the man with the chisel, chiseling the surface I been sleeping far too long And I keep on chiseling, keep on chiseling, keep on chiseling, Chiseling the surface. I don't know what you mean Said the man with the shovel, shoveling the ashes I been digging in the.

Besides being noteworthy as an astonishingly good all-covers album, Kicking Against the Pricks is notable for the arrival of a new key member for the Seeds, drummer Thomas Wydler. Besides being a fine percussionist, able to perform at both the explosive and restrained levels Cave requires, Wydler also allowed Harvey to concentrate on adding guitar and keyboards live as well as in the studio, a notable bonus. Matching the range of material, the Seeds are well on their way to becoming the rock/cabaret/blues showband of Cave's dreams, able to conjure up haunting, winsome atmospheres ("Sleeping Annaleah") as much as higher-volume takes (Roy Orbison's "Running Scared," the Velvet Underground's "All Tomorrow's Parties").

Kicking Against The Pricks (in . and stereo). Additional Tracks: Black Betty. The title refers to a passage from the Bible (Acts 9:5 and 26:14), the second of which reads And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

So when The Bad Seeds released an album of pop tunes, country ballads, and folk classics in 1986 I am sure there was a lot of groans and moans. but wouldn't his own audience not be very pleased with this choice" Like, who is this for". The goth king covering Tom Jones is a weird image let alone sound. This is at times cringe-worthy, both in song selection and execution  . If you are a fan of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds it is a good idea to listen to this record. Not only is it interesting to listen to the progression of the band, but a lot of the songs are excellently interpreted.
