Nick Cave – The Cat Piano
ATASTA: Here is Caroline’s translation of an interview Nick Cave did for french newspaper Le Figaro, 30 April 2008 regarding Nick’s idea of how to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his first novel:
“I would like to redo And the ass saw the angel, to simplify the structure, cut some little things here and there, and read it aloud and put some music with it. It would make 5 hours of recordings : a little 5 CD box set to celebrate in 2009 the 20th anniversary of the novel.” Go here for article.
Bunny Monroe Update:
An unabridged audio CD of Bunny Monroe is set for release in September 2009. Meanwhile Nick Cave recently read aloud from the novel to a select group at the Scottish ‘Limbo’ Club. Canongate plans to release films of Nick’s readings, accompanied by ‘ambient music’ by The Bad Seeds, according to this blog post:

Nick Fixes Blog Stuff: ‘U-POST IT’ Page
I’ve just created a U-POST IT Bulletin Board Open Thread page for everyone to use. You don’t have to be a WordPress Member or even logged in. It’s for fun and information sharing. If you have news or info about Nick, or just feel like sharing some gossip or what have you, post it in the comments section there. I will put up a new Bulletin Board page when we get to about 50 or 60 comments and archive them by date. K? Enjoy, folks. ~ Morgan
