Nick Cave: “Everyone assumes I’m musically inept…”

Nick Cave: “Everyone assumes I’m musically inept…”

Nick Cave sheds light on his script and soundtrack for the movie Lawless, and the future of the Bad Seeds, in the new issue of Uncut, out on Friday (August 24).

In the cover feature, Uncut visits Cave at his home in Brighton to discuss topics including the songwriter’s short-lived acting career, working with Warren Ellis and his unused, out-there script for Gladiator 2.

Ellis and the rest of his group, the Dirty Three, are also interviewed in the piece, along with Lawless’ director, longtime Cave collaborator John Hillcoat.

With regards to how some in the movie industry see him and Ellis, Cave said: “It’s ridiculous, but because me and Warren come out of rock’n’roll, everyone assumes you’re half-retarded and musically inept. Which on some level is halfways true.”

The new issue of Uncut (October 2012, Take 185) is out on Friday, August 24.
