cat.jpgDe senaste dagarna har skivan Dig, Lazarus Dig! gått i en ständig loop i min ipod. Otroligt bra skiva och eftersom jag nu hamnat i denna Nicke Cave-loop slukar jag även textmassor om densamme. Jag läste att han på sitt kontor har väggarna fulla av kattbilder. De är målade av den viktorianske konstnären Louis Wain.

”When Cave gets a passion for something, it often becomes an obsession. I ask about those cats. He tells me they are by the Victorian artist Louis Wain, a man who became schizophrenic after his wife died and whose illness is reflected in his increasingly delirious portraits of cats. ”Look, Google it.” ”Google it” is one of Cave’s favourite expressions.”

Googla, Louis Wain, googla!
