Grinderman - Europe & USA - April/June/July 2007

Comments: Note that the Nick Cave solo quartet was already called "Grinderman" in late 2006,
but they didn't perform and Grinderman songs from the new album. All songs from the album were played on this tour. 
At the London Forum gig, the last two songs ("Touch Me" and "Mr. Ray" from Suicide) include the two support bands, 
Seasick Steve and Suicide. Blixa Bargeld joined Grinderman on stage on July 26th, 2007 in San Francisco 
to sing "The Weeping Song". At Slim's (San Francisco) on 27 July 2007, Henry Rollins and Jello Biafra 
made a suprise visit to perform backing vocals for "Deanna".
