"She just didn't want to."
There was some discussion here in comments yesterday of Grinderman, the new album from Nick Cave et al.
It occurred to me that, since I didn't have anywhere to announce things at the time, my regular readers probably missed the 2-colour cover I did for the Oct 2003 issue of Punk Planet, featuring my ink portrait of the man himself. There's a shadowy impression of his younger self in the background, but it's mostly covered with text.
There's an excellent review of the album at Popmatters
'No Pussy Blues' is a killer:
I bought her a dozen snow-white doves,
I did her dishes in rubber gloves,
I called her Honeybee, I called her Love,
But she just still didn't want to.
She just never wants to.
I thought I'd try another tack,
I drank a litre of cognac,
I threw her down upon her back,
But she just laughed and said
that she just didn't want to.
