The sick bag song

‘The Sick Bag Song’ chronicles Cave’s journey with his band the Bad Seeds on a 22-day North American tour. It is a highly personal account that blends memories, musings, poetry, lyrics, flights of fancy and road journal. Drawing inspiration from Leonard Cohen, John Berryman, Patti Smith, Sharon Olds, folk ballads and ancient texts, Cave’s book takes the form of an epic quest, turning over questions of inspiration, creativity, loss, death and romantic love. It is also a companion piece to his feature documentary ‘20,000 Days on Earth’.
