Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, 'Mermaids'

Perverted poetry

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, 'Mermaids'

Album Info

  • Label: Bad Seed Ltd
“She was a catch/And we were a match/I was the match that would fire up her snatch”. There aren’t many men in music who’d get away with an opening lyric like that. Dappy? They’d arrest him. Bob Dylan? People would go “eugh”. Robbie Williams? He’d be sent back to the asylum. Nick Cave? An icon of perverted poetry.
