Nick Cave & The Seeds - Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!!
I was faced with a choice at a difficult age. Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage? But in the back of my head I heard distant feet. Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat.

Allright, another one...this band never ceases to amaze me on how tuneful it is and yet I have barely approached their catalog.

Tocotronic : Aber Hier Leben, Nein Danke
