Has anyone seen the film from Copenhagen? I missed it at the cinema.

I'm sure there'll be a DVD/CD release at some stage.

I was intending to Gold Class that thing, but was away for work the week it was showing.

Would love to see it.

Conway Savage passed away on sunday. Sad news indeed. RIP.

In 2017 Savage underwent medical treatment for a brain tumour. He died, aged 58, on 2 September 2018.

The Red Hand Files - #01

Q: I would love to know how you feel about your writing now. Did it get easier after what seemed to be quite a challenge around "Skeleton Tree"? (I think I remember you saying in "One More Time with Feeling" that you kind of lost your grip on lyric writing for a while). Do you feel like you are changing now as a songwriter, perhaps in the light of the strong communion with fans? How is the process now? (JAKUB, ŁÓDŹ, POLAND)

A: Dear Jakub,
The good news is that in the last year I have felt intensely connected to my writing. Something has definitely shifted and I have written a lot of new stuff. I can’t tell you what a relief this is. I am writing much more and it is strong and focused, in my opinion. But, you are right, for a year it had been difficult to work out how to write, because the centre had collapsed and Susie and I had been flung to the outer reaches of our lives. We were kind of outlanders floating in deep space.
But what had collapsed? What is at the centre of our lives? In an artist’s case (and perhaps it is the same for everybody) I would say it is a sense of wonder. Creative people in general have an acute propensity for wonder. Great trauma can rob us of this, the ability to be awed by things. Everything loses its sheen and appears beyond our reach. We were surviving, but we were surviving in exile on the perimeter of our lives, way beyond anything that mattered.

So how do we return to our lives - to the awe of existence - and reclaim a sense of wonder? Well, for me, it had something to do with work but it also had something to do with community. Work and community. I kind of realised that work was the key to get back to my life, but I also realised that I was not alone in my grief and that many of you were, in one way or another, suffering your own sorrows, your own griefs. I felt this in our live performances. I felt very acutely that a sense of suffering was the connective tissue that held us all together. It was these two things – community and work – that showed Susie and me a way forward. Work became the lifelines thrown out to us as we floated lost in narcissism and self-absorption. It also became very clear to both of us that we were not alone! We could see there were many others out there, floating around in the dark, outside of their lives. It seemed to be everywhere we looked – people in search of meaning and wonder.
We all needed to draw ourselves back to a state of wonder. My way was to write myself there. I sat and wrote and wrote, and in doing so I found a way back, or at least a way through the veil of grief, to the other side. I felt very strongly that the communal suffering, and our ability to transcend it, was the thing that held us together. This was not some pessimistic worldview, quite the opposite really. It became clear that as human beings we have enormous capabilities that allow us to rise above our suffering – that we are hardwired for transcendence. This was an acute realisation that changed the nature of our relationship to everything.
To answer your question as to whether the lyric writing has changed, I would say that it has shifted fundamentally. I have found a way to write beyond the trauma, authentically, that deals with all manner of issues but does not turn its back on the issue of the death of my child. I found with some practise the imagination could propel itself beyond the personal into a state of wonder. In doing so the colour came back to things with a renewed intensity and the world seemed clear and bright and new. So I am very happy about this. It feels good to have a notebook full of words again.
Here is a lyric, called Fireflies, which I wrote a few months ago that circles around this idea.

Much love, Nick

FIREFLIES
Jesus lying in his mother’s arms
Is a photon released from a dying star
We move through the forest at night
The sky is full of exit wounds of light
Everything we need is just too far
We are fireflies a child has trapped in a jar
I am here and you are where you are
I am here and you are where you are

We have lived a long time in the forest
We lie beneath the heaps of leaves
We are partial to this partial light
We cannot sleep and fear our dreams
There is no order here, nothing can be planned
We are fireflies trapped in a little boy’s hand
We are photons released from a dying star
I am here and you are where you are
I am here and you are where you are

We lie among our atoms and I speak to you of things
And hope sometimes that maybe you will understand
There is no order here and there is no middle ground
Nothing can be predicted and nothing can be planned
We are fireflies pulsing dimly in the dark
We are here and you are where you are
We are here and you are where you are

Distant Sky into Skeleton Tree is one of the best one two punches ive heard in recent years. An emotional gut punch that leaves me weeping for more.

Said it before and I'll say it again, the last 2 albums are my favourites. Unbelievably good stuff.

Ah, they say it's just rock and roll
But it gets you right down to your soul.


Enjoy the show VG - it's an absolute cracker. Best show I've been to in the past 2 years.

God. Listened to the Distant SKy live version from the film.... oof.

Let us go now, my only companion
Set out for the distant skies
Soon the children will be rising, will be rising
This is not for our eyes


I read this line as perhaps the mother walking Nick Cave away as his childs soul ascends to heaven. "This is not for our eyes"....

They told us our dreams (our child?) would outlive us, but they lied.

Was listening to it via headphones in bed last night. Lights off. I got chills and a little teary eyed.

Boy I couldn’t disagree more. Last two albums made me lose interest in Cave.
