BEHIND THE COUNTERCULTURE #5: NICK CAVE

story by Lake
originally published: February, 2005

Nick Cave was walking past the window with his son. It was around the time of the Pochahantas Disney film and his son was wearing a cardboard hat from the tie-in meal at McDonalds. Nick Cave had another of the hats in his hand. I imagine he wore it when he got home.

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.

The winner will face Magneto's long awaited King Lear at Stratford in an attempt to be crowned the undisputed heavyweight of Sci-Fi Theatre.
