Nick Cave sits in a Sydney hotel room, his chair facing the floor-to-ceiling windows, the city bathed in summer sun beyond and below. People will tell you other things, but it's like a fucking disease. A contagion that not only affects you but everybody around you. And it's cunning. And you can feel good and you can be getting on with things, and then it just comes up and sort of punches you in the back of the head and you're down and you're out for the count for a while. I don't just mean psychologically, I mean physically too. Grief and illness and tiredness feed off each other in a kind of feeding frenzy.
Nicholas Edward Cave AO born 22 September is an Australian singer, songwriter, author, screenwriter, composer and occasional actor, best known for fronting the rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Cave's music is generally characterised by his baritone voice, emotional intensity, a wide variety of influences and lyrical obsessions with death, religion, love and violence. Born and raised in rural Victoria , Cave studied art before fronting The Birthday Party , one of Melbourne 's leading post-punk bands, in the late s. They relocated to London in , but, disillusioned by life there, evolved towards a darker, more challenging sound, and acquired a reputation as "the most violent live band in the world". Much of the band's early material was set in a mythic American Deep South , drawing on spirituals and Delta blues , while Cave's preoccupation with Old Testament notions of good versus evil culminated in what has been called his signature song , " The Mercy Seat " More recent releases, including the band's 17th and latest LP, Ghosteen , feature increasingly abstract lyrics from Cave, as well as elements of ambient and electronic music. Grinderman , Cave's garage rock side project, has released two albums since Cave co-wrote, scored and starred in the Australian prison film Ghosts He also wrote the screenplay for Hillcoat's bushranger film The Proposition , and composed the soundtrack with frequent collaborator Warren Ellis. Cave is the subject of several films, including the semi-fictional "day in the life" 20, Days on Earth , and the documentary One More Time with Feeling
