Quote of the day: Nick Cave, suits and oboe salesmen

Cave on his liking for suits:

Most importantly, they are the reason why the Bad Seeds look like travelling oboe salesmen from Weimar Germany and not like an accidental meeting of chain smoking experts. Suits are a minefield: less skilled exponents (Tindersticks, Gallon Drunk) are often left looking like provincial bingo callers.

  1. Clothes:
    The liking of a suit,
    is the skin that it would mute,
    hiding skin from prying eye,
    is not bad like man would imply,
    but will pose proudly in black dark Clothes,
    striped of, nature still won’t not call them weirdos.
