Love, Nick...




Thank you everyone from Bournemouth, U.K. to Tel Aviv, Israel for making this tour the most extraordinary transformative and communal event. You helped us more than you can know. And thank you all for the beautiful pictures. Quite incredible. You are the new rock ’n’ roll chroniclers. Thank you to crew and the lights and the sound and the management and all the rest for making these massive venues appear intimate and true. And, of course, thank you to the Bad Seeds for their pure unadorned brilliance. Much love to you all and see you next time. I’m going home, having a party, then shutting the door and disappearing for a while!
Much love,
Nick

Tori Amos, The Guardian interview, 2017.



“Listen, we have all heard men being called a certain female body part when they cry. And we all know the real power of that body part; talk about a multitasker! Emotional vulnerability takes bravery. Great male leaders through the ages have understood this.”

From the letter to the late husband (Chris Cornell)...



...I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies. I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.
I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will.
Always and forever,
Your Vicky

The Love and Terror of Nick Cave, GQ interview, 2017.




“I mean, I was never a depressed person,” he says. “I've always been basically optimistic. I see great beauty in the world. You know, I look around and it's a fucking awesome beautiful place. That's how I've always felt. I'm not saying this is some kind of thing at the moment—I've always looked at the world in that way.… Writing is basically an act of love, and a kind of joyful thing to do. That quickening of the heart that comes when you're onto something. I mean, I get all kind of shaky and stuff like that. It's an immensely positive act, nothing to do with sadness or depression or any of these sorts of things, no matter what you're writing about.”

Feist, NY Times article, (2017)...





...climbing rocks in Central Park, she recalled the “shanty hut” on a raw Canadian island where she spends weeks during the summer, isolated and without electricity.
“Being on that island, I found really concrete poetry,” Feist said, comparing her moods to the storms that passed over the exposed landscape. “I could see it coming, I would experience it, and then it would be gone.”

nipplepeople FRKA




grickam nokte i za tobom žudim htjela bih poprilično da s tobom danas bludim noć je ova tako lijepa a u meni silna zbrka kada krene naša frka otkrila sam travku u šipražju otkrila sam sebe u metežu otkrila sam lice i suzicu otkrila sam ljubav i guzicu slušala sam uobičajene pizdarije pa radije znam pobrojati zvijezde koje se gnijezde gore iznad oblaka što hitro nailaze

Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) - ‘Music is the Answer’




I find it difficult to pluck up the courage to speak out about the political climate, and I find it equally troubling to stay silent. I realize that in reality all I really do is make pretty whimsical pop music, but I do that to the best of my ability. I try to invest this music with emotion and humanity and hope that that effort comes across to the listener. Pop music isn’t much to believe in, particularly at a frightening moment in our history, but I feel that it has some importance nonetheless.

Yorke replacing Bjork...




Yorke is dealing with the emotional fallout of latter-day life challenges. In August this year he made public that he was separating from his wife of 23 years, Rachel Owen. At Pitchfork Paris, he's replacing Björk, who cancelled her original headline slot at the festival because performing her most recent album 'Vulnicura' reminded her too much of her traumatic separation from long-term partner Matthew Barney. So as the Icelandic musician takes time out from touring to overcome her personal struggles, Yorke has made the opposite move, reportedly taking himself on tour to give his ex-partner and kids back home in Oxfordshire some time and space to move forward.

Magical Girl (2014), Directed and written by: Carlos Vermut




"It is curious that Spain is the country where bullfighting is most popular. Do you know why Spain is a country in eternal conflict? Because we are not sure if we are a rational or an emotional country. Nordic people, for example, act in accordance with their brains. However, the Arabs or Latinos have accepted their passionate side without blame. Both, they know which are their strong points. Spaniards are balanced right in the middle. That’s the way we are. And what is bullfighting? The representation of the struggle between instinct and technique, between emotion and reason. We have to accept our instincts and learn to deal with them as if they were a bull, trying not to be destroyed by them."

Jarvis on creativity...



If you want to be a creative person, the big thing is to locate your own creative voice, which can be quite difficult. When I went to art college, I would read books about famous artists of years gone by and think, “Oh, well, if I went and lived in Marrakech and ate only oatmeal and bananas for a year, I'd become really artistic,” as if there's some kind of recipe. But instead of looking off into the distance, try and concentrate on your immediate surroundings and you will find that you already have a unique take on the world. It's just that you might not recognize it. The key to locating it is by being specific and writing about the details of situations, because a detail proves that you were actually there and lends authenticity to what you're writing. And the weird thing is that, by being more specific, it opens things up and makes it universal.
