*Video clip no longer available*
This clip opens with Nick Cave performing ‘Pleasure is the Boss’, with Die Haut, in August 1992, at Berlin’s Tempodrome. That’s Christoph Dreher, on bass, behind Nick. Christoph directed the Tupelo video in July 1985. This is a short behind the scenes glimpse (everybody gets pretty wasted, so be prepared).
If you’re interested in watching the rest of that smoking performance with Die Haut, I recommend trying to find a copy of Die Haut and Friends, Sweat (WSFA 140V/Triple X 51184-3, 1993) — live video from Tempodrom, Berlin, August 1992, 66 minutes, directed by Rolf S. Wolkenstein. (VHS only).
