The film is also of interest to Cave fans for scenes in which the former Birthday Party frontman interviews past collaborator Kylie Minogue and Einstürzende Neubauten frontman and Bad Seeds founding member Blixa Bargeld, while Cave himself chauffeurs them around town in a car.

“There was this sudden snatching of this character out of my life on a grand scale,” Cave told HitFix. “God knows why he agreed to do it… it ended up being a really beautiful thing. When I see Blixa in that car, my heart leaps… I’m reminded what an incredibly powerful presence that this guy was.”

I love Wolfgang’s caption :)

Who started it?  Probably Blixa.  I’m delighted to see this image in full frame.  The beer bottles!  A wonderful moment immortalized.

That’s better.
