A very deliberate and well crafted document, marking Nick Cave’s 54.79th birthday. Without doubt how much you think you are going to enjoy this constructed window on Nick Cave’s imagined and real worlds, is much dependent on how much you like Nick Cave in yours … however, the part performance, part trad-doc, part existential exploration, part fairytale, has enough insight into the mind-tank of this contemporary cult figure to turn even the goodest of seeds b find out more...

Well, eternal optimist Steve 'Lips' Kudlow and ever patient best bud Robb Reiner just didn't seem to get a break.

School. Remember that? When life was all crayons and small glass bottles of milk and the winters were colder and summers dragged out for years..... aaaaaah.
