Wonderful life

Nick Cave has always looked like a character in a graphic novel (particularly in his Birthday Party days) so it comes as little surprise to learn that he's now the main protagonist of one. Reinhard Kleist's Nick Cave: Mercy On Me is a biography created with Cave's input and approval that the singer has described as "a terrifying conflation of Cave songs, biographical half-truths and complete fabulations" and "a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World". Consider my interest piqued.

On a recent edition of the Vitriola podcast, I quite enjoyed hearing Robin Ince's description of NC's current look as "A German expressionist version of Max Wall"
