Grinderman 2 Warren Ellis

The unveiling of Grinderman (a subset of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds doing dirty rock with hints of the Birthday Party) filled the band members with a nervous excitement they'd not felt for some time. Three years on the project is still energizing. Emma Smith got Warren Ellis on the line from Paris to talk about the second album - Grinderman 2, but first asked for a progress report on Ellis' 'other' band - The Dirty Three.
