Singer-songwriter Nick Cave is a busy man these days. He’s just been slated to star as himself in 20,000 Days on Earth, a fictional drama-documentary by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard that revolves around his a day in his life.

In this fascinating 2003 interview, he talks about his daily routines and how he really works every day. We love how he self-deprecatingly goes, ‘Musicians are the laziest bunch of bastards you can imagine… (he) just has to write 12 songs every three years‘ — but is then plodded about his routine and forced to reveal that he does put in quite some hours (‘I have an office that I go to every day. I get in about 7.30 and stay there till about 5, 5.30. That’s every day except for Sunday.’)
