Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds launch 24hr livestream via Youtube
Nick Cave has launched a new YouTube livestream called Bad Seed Teevee, and as a gift to Nick Cave fans all over the world, it'll run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The new stream on the band's YouTube channel will broadcast an incredible selection of footage that includes promo videos, interviews, live footage, outtakes and other exclusive unseen videos from The Bad Seeds' archives that will be played on a continuous random shuffle.
The move comes directly in an attempt to offer something to fans around the world forced to remain at home due to current global lockdown measures. While speaking about the new content Cave has said that the continuous stream will continue 24 hours a day "for the foreseeable".
During an interview, last week Cave says of the new livestream, "It’s 10.30 Wednesday evening, and if the world wasn’t in lockdown, I’d be onstage in Toulouse, France singing my heart out with The Bad Seeds. But I’m not. I’m doing the next best thing—sitting at home watching Bad Seed TeeVee. Pure non-stop joy!"
