Nick Cave tells Russian reporter that his mother keeps his tail in a jar

devolutionAhem.

In honor of the ageless Nick Cave who turned 57 yesterday, I dug up this interview that Cave did in 1992 for Russian TV. What got the most attention in the interview was Cave agreeing to poetry slam the lyrics to The Birthday Party song Dead Joe from the 1982 record, Junkyard.

For my money, it’s when Nick further mythologizes himself at about 7:30 in when he tells reporter Katya Galitzine a real princess, published author and descendant of Catherine the Great no less that not only did he used to have a tail, but that his mother keeps it in a JAR.

Oh, the many layers of the goth onion that is Nick Cave never disappoint.
