Oh Nick Cave, you're so ambitious with your career as an author, writing film scores, and acting as curator of the new ATP Festival in Australia. Where do you find the time?
Our man Nick (and the Bad Seeds) have just been tapped to curate the freshly announced All Tomorrow's Parties, a new voyage for the growing international festival. They'll be doing a Don't Look Back version of the show, which asks bands to defy the name and actually look back into their history and perform an album form their past.
So far they've tapped names like Spiritualized (UK), Afrirampo (Japan), Harmonia (Germany), James Blood Ulmer (US), Laughing Clowns (Aust) and more for a fully international look.
He's also working with Warren Ellis on the soundtrack for a film titled The Road, a drama thriller that follows a father and son on a voyage to the coast in a post-apocolyptic America.
As if that's not enough, he's also releasing a novel, titled The Death of Bunny Munro. It will be released in paper, e-book and audio book formats. He says he enjoys writing, andeven gets joyfully lost in the process.
"For me, the process of writing is the thinking. It’s the most exciting of all things, when you have these words in the English language, and writing is just sort of ordering these words in a pleasant way. I find that whole process extremely exciting," said Nick when talking to the LA Times.
Nick Cave's The Death of Bunny Munro will be released on Canongate in September of 2009.
