  1. Some drugs and a piano seem to be enough these days to call it an influence, Mark 😀

    Well I can imagine it’s because they are in a way (though for totally different reasons) to the same artists maybe? Like Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams and so on?

    Mentioning Elvis makes me think of “Release The Bats”, that was the first song that I ever heard of the TBP in a record store and I was like “Wow Nick Cave did Rockabilly in the past?” I should learn better though 😉
