Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Idiot Prayer - Alone At Alexandra Palace. LP
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Idiot Prayer - Alone At Alexandra Palace. 2LP
Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace was recorded in June 2020 as the UK slowly emerged from lockdown, and was conceived as a reaction to the confinement and isolation of the preceding months.
In Idiot Prayer, Cave plays his songs alone at the piano in a rarely seen stripped back form, from early Bad Seeds and Grinderman, right through to the most recent Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album, Ghosteen.
The performance was filmed by award winning Cinematographer Robbie Ryan (The Favourite, Marriage Story, American Honey) in Alexandra Palace's stunning West Hall. It was edited by Nick Emerson (Lady Macbeth, Emma, Greta).
The music was recorded by Dom Monks. Idiot Prayer is the fourth film that Nick Cave has released in collaboration with Trafalgar
