Nick Cave’s ‘The Sick Bag Song,’ a Broad ranging Poem Composed on Tour
Nick Cave's 2014 tour of North America with The Bad Seeds. The account of this 22-city journey began life scribbled on airline sick bags and grew into a restless full-length epic, seeking out the roots of inspiration, love and meaning.
The new book – The Sick Bag Song - by Nick Cave is an exploration of love, inspiration and memory shaped around the events of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 2014 tour of North America. It "blends poetry, lyrics, memories, musings, flights of fancy, fantasy, autobiography, and journal entries."
