Limited edititon picture disc with full colour hand drawn image by Nick Cave
'Based on the novelty ‘picture disc’ phenomena of the 1970s I have designed a series of four discs of tracks from the Idiot Prayer film. I have drawn four cute animals re-enacting, in a typically obscure and perplexing Cave-ian manner, the essence of the four songs.
EUTHANANSIA – An innocent but doomed lamb
WATCHING ALICE – A sexualised rabbit
SAD WATERS – A cat stepping into a river
STRANGER THAN KINDNESS – A distressed elephant balancing on a tiny stage (the story of my life)
I chose these four songs because they seemed to hold together as a set of love songs, each shot through with its own dark and impossible thread. I hope you like them.'Nick Cave
