Nick Cave je australský zpěvák, hudební skladatel, textař, herec a spisovatel. Hudbě se začal věnovat počátkem sedmdesátých let, kdy spolu s multiinstrumentalistou Mickem Harveyem založil svou první skupinu, jejíž název se po několika změnách ustálil na The Birthday Party. Ta se rozpadla v roce 1983, ale Cave spolu s Harveyem založili skupinu Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, ve které působí do současnosti; Harvey ze skupiny odešel v roce 2009, po více než pětatřicetileté spolupráci s Cavem. V letech 2006 až 2011 působil Cave ve skupině Grinderman, se kterou vydal dvě studiová alba. V roce 2000 získal italské hudební ocenění Premio Tenco a roku 2005 spolu s Warrenem Ellisem australskou cenu Australian Film Institute Awards za nejlepší hudbu k filmu The Proposition.

Jeho písně byly použity v řadě filmů, jako například Tak daleko, tak blízko! , Vřískot 3 nebo Harry Potter a Relikvie smrti – část 1 . Rovněž složil originální hudbu k několika filmům, jako jsou Zabití Jesseho Jamese zbabělcem Robertem Fordem a Země bez zákona . V různých filmech také hrál, jsou to například Nebe nad Berlínem a Rhinoceros Hunting in Budapest . Některým filmům jako The Proposition a Země bez zákona napsal scénář. Je autorem dvou románů, první z nich nesl název A uzřela oslice anděla, který byl poprvé vydán v roce 1989, druhý pak Smrt Zajdy Munroa .

Citáty Nick Cave


„Utrpení je vlastně jenom relativní pojem, kterej nás bolí nejvíc, když ho srovnáme s nějakým štěstím.“

„A myslí si přitom: V pohodě, žádnej problém, kunda, kunda.“ The Death of Bunny Munro


„Lidé si myslí, že jsem ubohý blbec, ale to jen proto, že se mě ptají na takové ubohé otázky.“

„But if you're gonna dine with them cannibals
Sooner or later, darling, you're gonna get eaten...“

„Music is storming, driving, relentless, devotional, slinky, subtle, heartbreakingly-beautiful sounds that, lyrically, switch from the cynical to the sanguine, the defeated to the defiant, dealing in love, war, beauty, children, romance, rejection, Pethedine, poetry, panties, God, Auden, Johnny Cash, cold potatoes, too-much-money, not enough money, writer’s block, flowers, animals and more flowers. But maybe I’m projecting here.“

„I’m forever near a stereo saying, ‘What the fuck is this garbage?’ And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers.“

„Inspiration is a word used by people who aren't really doing anything.“

„And she moves among the sparrows. And she floats upon the breeze. She moves among the flowers. She moves something deep inside of me“


„I look at you and you look at me and
deep in our hearts know it

That you weren't much of a muse,
but then I weren't much of a poet“

„... because once you've got one scar on your face or your heart, its only a matter of time before someone gives you another - and another - until a day doesn't go by when you aren't being bashed senseless, nor a town that you haven't been run out of, and you get to be such a goddamn mess that finally it doesn't feel right unless you're getting the Christ beaten out of you - amd within a year of that first damming fall, those first down borne fists, your first run out, you wind up with flies buzzing around your eyes, back at the same place, the same town, deader than when you left, bobbiong around in the swill - a dirty deadbeat whore in a roadside ditch. But a little part of you deosn't die. A little part of you lives on. And you make an orphan of that corrupt and contemtible part, dumping it right smack in the laps of the ones who first robbed you of your sweetness, for it is the wicked fruit of their crimes, it is their blood, their sin, it belongs there, this child of blood, this spawn of sin...“ And the Ass Saw the Angel

„People think I'm a miserable sod but it's only because I get asked such bloody miserable questions.“

„I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I don't believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that's true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candlew burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms“
Complete Lyrics


„When?' said the moon to the stars in the sky
Soon' said the wind that followed them all

Who?' said the cloud that started to cry
Me' said the rider as dry as a bone

How?' said the sun that melted the ground
and 'Why?' said the river that refused to run

and 'Where?' said the thunder without a sound
Here' said the rider and took up his gun

No' said the stars to the moon in the sky
No' said the trees that started to moan

No' said the dust that blunted its eyes
Yes' said the rider as white as a bone

No' said the moon that rose from his sleep
No' said the cry of the dying sun

No' said the planet as it started to weep
Yes' said the rider and laid down his gun“

„Samuel: What's a misanthrope?
Two Bob: A misanthrope is a bugger who hates every other bugger.
Samuel: Are we misanthropes?
Arthur: Lord no! We're family.“

„I don't particularly believe all love is doomed. But I guess, one is usually kinda suffering from some aborted love affair or association, rather than being at the peak of one. I think it's fairly obvious that a lot more suffering goes on in the name of love than the little happiness you can squeeze out of it.“

„It's a wonderful life if you can find it.“ Complete Lyrics
