  1. WTF Podcast Episode 403 - Nick Cave

    Comedian Marc Maron is tackling the most complex philosophical question of our day - WTF? He’ll get to the bottom of it with help from comedian friends, celebrity guests and the voices in his own head. You loved him on Morning Sedition. You kinda liked him on The Marc Maron Show. You tolerated him on Break Room Live. Now, embrace him on a show from which he cannot be fired - WTF with Marc Maron.

    Nick Cave grew up in Australia watching the same American TV sitcoms that Marc was watching halfway across the globe. But while Marc’s influences led him to comedy, Nick’s led him to writing music, lyrics, books, film scores and screenplays. He talks with Marc about his time as frontman of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and all the opportunities that sprung from there.

  2. Nick Cave on The Death of Bunny Munro

    Nick Cave is best known as a singer-songwriter and front man of the legendary Bad Seeds. But he has a second life as a novelist, and has just published his second book, The Death of Bunny Munro, which comes complete with a surround-sound audio version with music he has composed himself.

    He describes the challenge of creating a multi-media novel, and explains why he decided to write about a drug-addled sex maniac. He also muses on father-son relationships, seagulls and the attractions of Brighton. Along the way, he reveals why novels are easier to write than songs, what he gets up to on the tour bus and why he is praying that Kylie Minogue will forgive him.

  3. Nick Cave Digs Himself a Singular Niche

    Love, violence, death and America have always been themes for Australian-born singer-composer Nick Cave — Murder Ballads and Abbatoir Blues are just two of his album titles — so he was perhaps a natural to compose the soundtrack for last year’s epically paranoid Western The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

    Cave also wrote the screenplay and soundtrack for the Australian epic The Proposition, which Roger Ebert described as "pitiless and uncompromising, so filled with pathos and disregarded innocence that it is a record of those things we pray to be delivered from."

    Cave appeared in Wim Wenders’ 1987 film Wings of Desire, and he’s written both plays and novels.

    Now Cave has released a new CD with his band the Bad Seeds. The title? Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! The inspiration, he says, is the Biblical story of Lazarus’ return from the grave.
