Larry ‘Ratso’ Sloman joined his friend Nick Cave for a few dates of the recent Grinderman tour of the US. The report was filed for Spin Magazine, and you can read all ten pages here. It’s got some Hunter S, as in Thompson, qualities to it, a good read.
Nick blows me away with his one-night stand years ago with a renowned and extremely temperamental diva. They went back to his hotel and got busy. Hungover the next morning, Nick drank the glass of water that was on the night table. Water that contained the diva’s contact lens. “She never quite forgave me,” he says.
