HENRY ROLLINS:
"On 30 March 1983, the Birthday Party played Los Angeles. Me and all the guys from Black Flag went to see them do two sets at a small place called the Roxy, and they were thoroughly godhead. They were one of the all-time premier live bands.
The next night, Nick went to see a band called the Minutemen at a club called the Lingerie. I was there, too. I see Nick Cave sitting at a table, and I’m like, “Woh!” So I walked over and said, “Hey, Nick, I’m Henry Rollins, I’m in the band Black Flag,” and he goes, “Sure, I know who you guys are, you were at the show last night, right?” He was really cool and we talked for a while. I think I bugged him. It didn’t seem like it, but looking back at it now I was probably very annoying. I had all these questions I wanted to ask him because the Birthday Party were my favourite band at the time. But he was very nice to me. He didn’t tell me to go piss up a rope or anything.”
