Nick Cave’s side project Grinderman is on hiatus, or at least that’s what everyone is assuming following the band’s gig at Australia’s Meredith Music Festival this weekend.

Cave told the audience at the festival: “That’s it for Grinderman. It’s over. See you all in another ten years when we’ll be even older and uglier”.

Cave formed Grinderman with Warren Ellis, Martyn P Casey and Jim Sclavunos, all members of the Bad Seeds, in 2006 as a side project to their Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds work.
