If there’s one artist both myself and Phoebe absolutely love, it’s got to be Nick Cave. In fact, he’s sort of ‘our’ artist, and someday we’ll dance to his ‘Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow’ at our wedding (everyone must participate is the silly/cool dance!)
I can actually take credit for him being our guy. I’ve been a fan since I fell in love his score for the Brad Pitt film ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’ (which I think has the record for longest title nominated for best picture), and he was one of those artists I’d periodically listen to often. Then I got Phoebe into him (she knew who he was but hadn’t heard that much of him), and in turn got one of her brothers —the only decent one tbh but don’t tell him I said that— into him, and now she’s a way bigger fan of him than I am myself!
Well, anyway, last night we fulfilled a dream of ours— we saw him live! Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds played Norway’s largest arena ‘Oslo Spektrum’ for one night only and we’ve had tickets since February? March? Around there. I think February cause they were ripped away immediately. Cave is (thankfully I should say) a popular guy in Norway.
