Nick Cave releases 'epic poem' written on airline sickbags via Canongate this Spring

Nick Cave is following up the release of The Death Of Bunny Munro with an epic poem called The Sick Bag Song which was written on a 22-date tour Bad Seeds tour of America last Summer.

The book was written entirely on in flight sick bags - hence the title - and is pitched by the singer as being somewhere between The Wasteland and Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. The book, which will be published by Canongate, is only available from website.

TQ Editor John Doran was lucky enough to interview Cave about the book for VICE Meets film which will be aired next Friday via the site.
