Nick Cave Podcast With The Doctor

Nick appeared on the Triple J radio show with The Doctor (not Who) today. If you missed it (I certainly did), you can check out the podcast and/or download the mp3 of the show at the link below. It's a very good, lengthy interview, in which Nick talks about Amanda Palmer's version of "The Ship Song," getting an honorary doctorate, his tanned nipples(?!), and...if you're not interested yet...haha.

Doctor: Is it often that you get asked to show people your tits, uh, during a set?

Nick: Uh, no.

Doctor: I think people were shocked to realize that...

Nick: That I have nipples.

Doctor: And such tanned nipples!

Nick: Well, they are...they always were a little dark. Sorry, I haven't had a lot of sleep. No, they were one of my faaaavorite features. I don't have to rouge them or anything like that.

Doctor: Which is good cuz sooo many performers...I know Iggy rouges...

Nick: Yeah, sure he does.

Melbourne: Palace Theatre (jiw64)

So, how 'bout that Big Day Out, huh? Okay, I didn't go...I'm in freakin' America, but hopefully some of you got to check it out and were thoroughly entertained.

I have some stuff to scan sometime this week, woot-woot!

Here are some short (yet amazing quality) videos by youtuber jiw64 (THANK YOU!). These are from the January 17th show at Melbourne's Palace Theatre:

Side-note: Amanda Palmer (solo artist and of The Dresden Dolls) does a lovely version of The Ship Song on her new album...and she met Mr. Cave and freaked out about it in her blog. I love her (you might not, and that's fine), but her blog about it was TOTALLY how I felt when I met him:

Oh...did I, your deranged blogstress, not mention I met Mr. Nick Cave? Honestly, I figured most of you knew from my Facebook. Whoops. If you wanted details, let me know. I just assumed most of you knew. Haha. But yes, he was SO SWEET! It was AMAZING. My complete.
