Mickey Mouse & the Goodbye Man

Often on the playlist at ITW is some form of Nick Cave, whether that be of The Birthday Party, Bad Seeds or Grinderman variety. Loved the build up trailers for the release of Grinderman 2, and especially pleased to see the new video for ‘Mickey Mouse & the Goodbye Man’ features a full animated video from Ilinca Höpfner.

Story has it she’s sent an animated short featuring a Bad Seeds track to Mr Cave and he loved it. So much so that most of the promotional artwork for Grinderman 2 features her work. Her illustration the animation style suit this song particularly well and add to the menacing vibe.
