Nick Cave: 'I have a deep understanding of troubled women'

The Bad Seeds singer appears on US podcast to talk about his life and music

Nick Cave: 'I have a deep understanding of troubled women'
Nick Cave has appeared on an American podcast, WTF, hosted by comedian Marc Maron, The Line of Best Fit reports.

Over the course of the hour long programme, the pair discuss Cave's childhood, views on religion and what it was like meeting Johnny Cash. They also speak about the effect Cave has on a "certain type of woman".

"I have a deep understanding of troubled women," explained the Bad Seeds frontman. "I have a very strange relationship in general with women around my music. There's some that understand it and some that think there should be a law against it."

The former Birthday Party man also went on to talk about seedy image his music has provoked, saying: "It's managed to get itself a reputation and unfairly, I think. I like to look at particular issues between men and women and address some of those issues. Because I write about those sorts of things, people assume I am like that as well."

He also revealed his approach to songwriting is very 9-5 and is done from an office. "I wake up every morning, get dressed, kiss the wife goodbye and walk down into the basement and stay there all day and write," he explained. "It's always been the same work-like process. It’s transformative. I feel that I become at one with the things I'm writing about."
