He’s Your Man

Flat out fantastic slide show of photos, set to Nick Cave’s rendition of I’m Your Man by Leonard Cohen. Wonderful. (‘Love the comment: whoever thinks Nick Cave can’t sing must be deaf’.)

  1. I just embedded the Eurokennes Festival of ‘Henry Lee Live’.

    Noticed the chipped nail polish in the White Room clip a long time ago. Fabulous detail.

    Also interesting: Nick’s performance of ‘Something’s Gotten Hold of My Heart’ from Kicking Against the Pricks. Gene Pitney did they song originally. He was a local boy, Hartford CT area. Nick does this song justice, I must say, althought Pitney’s original is stunning.

    Cheers, all.

  2. Thank you so much for the video!! 🙂

    Yes, I had noticed the nail polish on his fingers 😀

    The interviews must be interesting, it would be really nice if you uploaded them.

  3. Caroline,

    For your viewing pleasure, here it is:

    Just judging by their body language, in comparison to the White Room video, I think you’re right about it being Eurockeennes fest. (By the way, has anybody else noticed the pale “pink and chipped” nail polish on Nick’s thumbnail in the White Room clip?)

    I also have the Australian Great Albums Murder Ballads special, the BBC Radio 3 Private Passions interview with Polly, and a couple of very interesting JJJ interviews with her as well. I could upload them, if you’re interested? (She talks quite a bit about Nick in all three interviews).

  4. There’s not a lot of footage of them performing together. I only have the official video and the White Room footage.

    Could you upload that mtv video? 🙂

    I found this on Nick Cave Collector’s Hell :

    European Festival tour. PJ Harvey sang on Henry Lee.
    Parts of the Koln concert, and the complete Santiago gig were broadcast on TV.
    In Santiago, Red Right Hand was aborted and the set was shortened due to a hostile audience yelling for Cypress Hill. In Milano 30/6/96, "Jangling Jack" has reportedly been played, and PJ Harvey was there.

    MTV, about Eurockeennes fest, Nick & PJ on Henry Lee
    (I guess it's the video you have).

  5. Delicious fix.

    I don’t suppose you’d be able to dig up some Nick Cave/PJ Harvey footage? I’ve seen the official Henry Lee vid (along with the rest of the universe, I suspect), I’ve seen the White Room footage, and also have an mtv clip of them performing live … somewhere. Is that all there is? Seems a shame that they’ll probably never perform together again – they’re both great singers.

    /end moment of nostalgia brought on by slide show.
