Nick Cave on More News From Nowhere:
This song has nothing to do with the classic work of utopian fiction (1890) by William Morris. A guy travels aimlessly and endlessly through a kind of horror house of past affairs trying unsuccessfully to get laid. What interests me most about More News From Nowhere is that quite possibly, although I can’t be completely sure, the central character is dead and his story is a just a kind of posthumous bad-trip, a death-trip, so to speak. What alerted me to this was the nifty line “Janet is known to make dead men groan”… All the usual suspects are there, and I won’t name them all, you can have fun at home working all that if you can be fucked, but suffice to say this is all an elaborate ruse, as after 8 minutes we are at the belated denouement…the terrible sense of vertigo we feel when we realise that each moment we live is rendered obsolete by the next…”technology and women and little children too”
