Nick interview in October Dazed and Confused

The staff of Dazed & Confused magazine really want you to know that...

"Nick Cave, the last surviving saint to roam the earth, talks frankly to Dazed this month about Blixa's departure, work, life and personal change. Cave has never enjoyed the stale rituals of the interview treadmill, he relents 'Where is my fucking vodka and where is this and where is that?' I miss that aspect of the band, but we've been forced to change our methods. We don't know what the effect actually is. Cave has always had to wrestle with his public image, more so than for your average rock star. Check out the October issue of Dazed & Confused Magazine, out now, for the full story."

Sounds like a veteran reporter took Nick on and survived. I'll be interested in see what Nick has to say about Blixa. The ish also has something on Nancy "Great Boots!" Sinatra.

Look for the Dazed & Confused October issue on sale September 18. It is titled as the Fashion Special with Nick Cave, Nancy Sinatra, Raindance, Metallica, Stockholm Party, Terry Richardson, Martha Cooper.

Chicago Underground Film Festival

In keeping with its tradition of presenting a strong roster of music-oriented movies along with its other fare, the Chicago Underground Film Festival (which began Wednesday) has included among this year's offerings screenings of "My Brother Is James Chance," a documentary about the brother of the No-Wave legend; "Sound Class," a video history of the Jamaican sound systems of the reggae era and how they influenced the birth of hip-hop; "I Was Born But ...," a road movie by Roddy Bogawa that opens with the death of Joey Ramone and travels to Los Angeles to revisit punk clubs from the late '70s and early '80s, and "The Myth -- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Fan Movie," which explores the followers of everybody's favorite literary goth-punk. But the most interesting of the music-related films is the world premiere of a documentary called "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music?"

Read more at the Chicago Sun Times.

From MusicOHM.com:

"I was just a boy when I sat down to watch the news on TV / I saw some ordinary slaughter, I saw some routine atrocity..." - the opening line of Nature Boy could come from Murder Ballads. But no, this is one of Nick Cave's most gorgeous love songs, and an upbeat one at at that.

Read the whole thing here.

From a fan, Massimo Triolo from Italy:

My blood be blood to you,
salt any tear of mine

the Love teached the game to the Death,
that dieing teached death to Love

you came back to your games I stood alone
to slowly dieing myself
