The myth of Nick Cave gets explored via the man himself in a fictitious, scripted 24 hours of his life in Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s film that has already won multiple awards at the Sundance film festival. The official trailer is some powerful stuff. I can only hope the film makes its way to […]
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 […]
Something we never thought we’d see in our life: visual artist Nick Cave, next to rock-star troubadour Nick Cave, both beaming away crazily at an undisclosed NYC venue. Well, here it is.
Having been shot in November 2011, Philadelphia-based videographer and musician Quinn Arlington Waters (aka Caffeine Machine) is no stranger to traumatic encounters. The video for his single, Nothing To Me, states as much. It uses hauntintingly powerful horn and string arrangements as atmosphere to paint a cinematic one-shot of gore-less voilence. Played from end to […]

Perhaps an anthem for our times? If you like a bit of Nick Cave-infused messy grit-pop-rock, then this Sydney-based trio, The Wild Frontier, may be for you. The brainchild of brother and sister, Christopher and Philippa Mayes, with David Mackie, this archival style promo seems to hang together quite well in a sort of sixth […]

We Were One is the debut album by Columboid. Shattering orthodox approaches, their brand of brooding anthems are a cross between the heightened awareness of Nick Cave and the darkly sexy, throbbing keyboards and twisted party-times of TV On The Radio.
Chicago-based artist, educator, and Alvin Ailey dancer Nick Cave (not to be confused with the other one) has been wowing people with his amazing Soundsuits for years now. Inspired by African ceremonial costumes, Cave’s pieces fuse sculpture, fashion, and performance.
A lot of horror lies buried in the American landscape, and the nation’s music, since long before the time of Charlie Poole and Leadbelly, has often dealt with themes of death, murder, war, and the occult. It’s funny then that people should be so jarred by bands like Those Poor Bastards, who, drawing from bluegrass […]
The Cad Factory is an inner-city warehouse space in Marrickville, Sydney that holds band and performance nights, as well as art exhibitions.

Artists such as photographer Clare Pandemonium and painter Edwina Wrobel have contributed to the ambiance, exhibiting their works on the warehouse walls.
