Warren Ellis Pure Exploitation Egg Cup


Footed egg cup with drawing by Nick Cave.

`Warren joined The Bad Seeds after I saw his band play at a local pub in Melbourne. It was some time in the early nineties and we were recording the Murder Ballads record. He came bounding into the studio, and our lives, with drug-crazed eyes and a fiddle in his hand, and kicked off a friendship that has lasted more than twenty-five years. When we get together in the studio these days there is a kind of wild synchronicity that is nothing short of magical. It is an absolute privilege to work with him. He is an alchemist and a godsend.

I have designed this egg cup in his honour. If you think I just scrawled some bullshit on the side of an egg cup, you’d be right. If you think that I am shamelessly exploiting Warren’s good standing amongst his fans, you’d be right again. Yet, I love this little egg cup—truly, purely and without limitation. It is my gift to Warren and the world—The Warren Ellis Pure Exploitation Egg Cup—just the greatest little egg cup ever.`
