Library Rock's Backpages

AUDIO: Nick Cave (1995)

Andy Gill, Rock's Backpages audio, Winter 1995

The Baddest Seed talks about his Murder Ballads album: the inception that was 'O'Malley's Bar'; the attraction of the murder ballads narrative; the album's swift recording process; the anger that never quite pushes him to killing anyone; his relationship with crime fiction; the pleasure of writing about violence; his take on the 'Stagger Lee' story... and his duet with Kylie Minogue.
