Nick Cave Takes to Twitter to Answer Questions from Fans

Nick Cave Takes to Twitter to Answer Questions from Fans -

Never the one to mince his words Nick Cave has spoken about the possibility of reforming Grinderman in order to perform at the 2013 Coachella Valley Festival in April.

The Griderman and Bad Seeds frontman took to twitter to address fans questions and, when asked if Grinderman would reform, Cave responded:

"Every other shitty band is doing it, why not someone who's actually good."

During the Twitter Q&A Cave also revealed the track he was most proud of was Bad Seeds number 'Jack The Ripper,' which featured on their 1992 album 'Henrys Dream.'

He added:

"My favourite album is 'Nocturama' mostly because everybody hates it, someone's gotta look out for it."

A lot of Cave's answers were quite tounge-in-cheek and when asked about the Wiki reference regarding new track 'We Real Cool,' Cave replied:

"I love it (Wikipedia) beyond measure, I'm a Wikipediaphile."

He was also asked if was actually as morose in the flesh as he comes across and responded with:

"you have no fucking idea. Morose? I'm just getting started."
