According to The Music Network, Nick Cave has left the Mute Record label to work with the Kobalt Music Group. This apparently occurred after the sale of Mute to Universal in 2012 and was due, in part, to the desire to have more digital presence.

Nick Cave Recipes

I designed a menu for 22nd September:

  • ‘The face of Jesus in my soup’ (pea soup) with ‘Bread and water portions’;
  • ‘Stacks’ (vegetable terrines) & ‘Sizzling wires’ (chicken skewers & tofu skewers), served with ‘Cold potatoes’ (leek, potato & olive bake) and ‘Overgrown with weeds’ (pear & walnut herb salad with blue cheese dressing);
  • Bad, black bottom kind‘ (Canadian black bottom pie) & ‘Under cherry trees’ (cherry almond tart).

Here are a few photos:
