Here’s a new trailer for 20,000 Days, the unique quasi-documentary starring Nick Cave from Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard. The film is a sort of enhanced version of reality. Nick Cave recounts his thoughts and experiences to a fictional (we assume) therapist, as we see snippets of his creative process. Drama and reality combine in a fictitious […]

Nick Cave (not be confused with Nick Cave) told Marc Maron that Russell Crowe asked him to write a script for Gladiator 2. Crowe watched the Australian western The Proposition that Cave wrote with John Hillcoat and liked it. When Cave asked Crowe, “Hey, Russell, didn’t you die in Gladiator 1?” Crowe answered, “Yeah, you sort that out,” and then […]

Nick Cave pretends to chauffeur Kylie Minogue and Ray Winstone. Nick Cave watches Scarface with his twelve-year-old sons. He goes to a psychoanalyst, has lunch with Warren Ellis and visits the Nick Cave Archive at the “Melbourne Arts Centre” set. But not really. For their upcoming “drama-documentary” 20,000 Days on Earth, conceptual artists and music history re-enactors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard don’t […]

It’s good to know that visual artist/wooshy-horse-shepard Nick Cave has a good sense of humor. A day after NME confused him for recording artist Nick Cave of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds — YES IT REALLY HAPPENED LOLOLOLOL — this photo was posted on Nick Cave (the artist)’s official Facebook page (and Kriston Capp’s Twitter) […]

Earlier this morning, NME published an article about Nick Cave’s Heard NY performance in Grand Central’s Vanderbilt Hall. Cool. Only it’s the wrong Nick Cave. Some of us may have predicted this mix-up but it’s still pretty amusing because NME is NME. So to clarify, there are two men named Nick Cave — a recording artist and an “artist” artist. Nick […]

Nick Cave’s immersive performance art piece HEARD NY premiered at the Grand Central Metro station, filling the space with a gentle rustling sound. Each of the 30 uniquely-crafted horse-suits required two dancers from the Alvin Ailey Dance School to maneuver. The horses “graze” by shifting around and trotting in circles, then breaking into choreographed dance routines set to […]

Ooh. This is better than the last new Nick Cave video — the shadow-strolls-through-forest-moodily that Gaspar Noé’s directed. Sorry, Noé. Heart you. From the Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds 15th album Push the Sky Away (yes, you can pre-order), featuring Ray Winstone, here is the “Jubilee Street” music video directed by John Hillcoat. Hillcoat directed The Proposition, which was awesome/written […]

And it sounded so hot. Filmmaker/mind-fucker Gaspar Noé has just directed a music video for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ much-anticipated, confusingly Ke$ha-like titled “We No Who U R” single off their upcoming “Push the Sky Away” album and it sounded so hot!!!  Were you expecting seizing neon titles and DMT-hued Paz De La Huerta? Sorry you didn’t get exactly what you want […]
