Grinderman 2

Grinderman is a rock band formed by Nick Cave with other members including Warren Ellis, Martin P. Casey and Jim Sclavunos.
Their self-titled debut album was released in 2007 and on September 13th 2010 they released their second, titled Grinderman 2.

(If you want to learn more for the band and the albums, click HERE)



Grinderman 2 bears many interesting features relating to Greek antiquity.




The album's cover features a bust of Perikles. Though seen from a distance I think I can safely identify a copy of the well-known Roman bust of Pericles in the British Museum.




More for the British Museum Pericles HERE

If you're interested, you may purchase yourself a copy of this bust HERE

On a column to the left of the cover picture one may see the back of a small of copy youth's statue for which I shall not venture an identification


It is interesting to watch the following two promotional trailers for Grinderman 2, directed by John Hillcoat and then note the band's humorous tour poster

Thanks for the visit.
I did check the Hirandami and saw all the columns and pediments, still I'm not very familiar with the local architecture. Do you think it's a safe example of ancient Greek architectural influence?
