Iconic drug-rock frontman, brutally poetic songwriter, cult novelist and critically acclaimed screenwriter - Nick Cave is one of the most revered artistic talents of the past three decades. Having risen through the music industry's ranks as leader of '70s Australian punk outfit the Birthday Party, Cave went on to achieve global recognition with his band the Bad Seeds, whose panoramic hybrid of blues, rock, gospel and post-punk provided the backdrop for Cave's lyrical dissections on religion, love, sex and death. This career-spanning collection of interviews captures Cave's provocative and enigmatic vision, offering insight into the risks and gains of surrendering to the rock 'n' roll myth.
