Give me another 10-ton catastrophe on a 60-foot chain

After seeing Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds the other night and having my mind blown, I have been in the mood for nothing but Cave and Cave-y tunes. The Nick Cave station I made on Pandora has been remarkably awesome, but it’s left me wanting MORE. Americana-meets-rock, darkly atmospheric, fire and brimstone with a sexy swagger... you get the idea.

Artists that Pandora played who I’m already quite familiar with: Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, William Elliot Whitmore, Rolling Stones, Pixies, Bauhaus, Scott Walker, Neil Young/Crazyhorse.
Artists that Pandora played who I'm not as familiar with, and so would love specific suggestions for the best place to start: Crooked Fingers, Andrew Bird, Greg Brown, Morphine, Guy Davis, Mark Lanegan, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, the Dirty Three (Warren Ellis)
FWIW, the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds albums that I’m most familiar with are Push Back the Sky (I am basically obsessed with "Jubilee Street"), Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus, Murder Ballads, The Boatman’s Call, and Tender Prey. Also am getting into his soundtrack work with Warren Ellis. Need to pick up the Grinderman albums. I haven’t listened to much Birthday Party and should probably rectify that as well (though my sense is that much of their work is more on the noise side than I’m going for here).
And, of course, please suggest any additional artists who fit in with this general vibe as well -- specific songs/albums particularly appreciated.
