Definitely. Another group I would put up there with him is Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. I haven't heard their latest album but I enjoy Murder Ballads, among others.
I know more recently Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have collaborated on soundtracks and music production for films ('The Proposition' - which Nick wrote and more recently 'Hell and High Water'). Very talented musician, I believe his son died in the last couple of years and also had a band of his own.
Also Grinderman - Nicks other band is good.
