"Do I have to come up with a clever answer?"

Talk about awkward. It's been suggested that this encounter between a very young Nick Cave and an equally youthful and very drunk-sounding kid may be Cave's earliest interview. The withering stare and disdainful response to dumb questions are already present and correct, though. He clearly didn't suffer fools too gladly even back then.

The interview dates from when Cave was in The Boys Next Door, as The Birthday Party were originally known prior to leaving Melbourne for the UK. That gives me an excuse to post the promo video for their cover of Nancy Sinatra's 'These Boots Were Made For Walking' again...
