"There's always pain around. That's one thing you can guarantee in life - there will always be a surplus of pain." - Nick Cave.

The snow's melting, too. Slowly.
Cheers for posting that. I love the bit about 'The Boatman's Call', "Cave has since been dismissive of the album - he was, he says, "making a big heroic melodrama out of a bog-standard rejection by a woman"."
Sits very nicely with the bit about not denying the past and devaluing the works he produced during it.
