* SceneryDissonance: "Where the Wild Roses Grow" is a murder ballad set in a very pretty environment. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDpnjE1LUvE The video]] is a nice supplement.

*** Surprisingly averted in "Jack The Ripper." In spite of its namesake, the song has nothing to do with [[UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper the infamous murderer]].

He is also the author of the novels: ''And the Ass Saw the Angel'' and ''The Death of Bunny Munro,'' as well as the script for ''Film/TheProposition,'' for which he and bandmate Warren Ellis (no, not ''that'' Creator/WarrenEllis) also composed the soundtrack. And he's occasionally acted, most notably in ''Film/TheAssassinationOfJesseJamesByTheCowardRobertFord'' (he appears as a musician, playing the folk song "UsefulNotes/JesseJames"), which he and Ellis again scored. The film version of ''Film/TheRoad'' was scored by him and Ellis, and directed by ''John Hillcoat,'' who also did ''The Proposition.''

'''Nick Cave''' is an internationally renowned musician from the North East of Victoria, UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}. He started out in Music/TheBirthdayParty, a rather weird PostPunk band who would become a big influence on GothRock. In the middle of TheEighties went on to found ''Nick Cave and the Cavemen,'' who fairly quickly re-named themselves to ''Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.'' In recent years he's formed a third band, ''Grinderman,'' [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent who very unusually for him]] play rather [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth straightforward rock music.]]

* BadassMustache / BadassBeard: With Grinderman came a mustache to the formerly clean-shaven Cave. Many of the members of Grinderman and a few of the Bad Seeds sport {{Badass}} facial hair such as Warren Ellis' wild-man grizzly beard.

** Nick Cave loves this trope, with plenty of songs ending in around the seven to nine minute mark: Saint Huck (7:22), A Box for Black Paul (9:42), Tupelo (7:18), Knockin' on Joe (7:38), The Carny (8:02), The Mercy Seat (7:19), O'Malley's Bar (14:28), Hallelujah (7:48), Oh My Lord (7:30), Babe, I'm on Fire (14:45), More News from Nowhere (7:58), Higgs Boson Blues (7:51). Plenty of tracks that breach the five and six minute mark as well.

** His friend Music/HenryRollins noted in his book ''Get In The Van'' that Cave in the early 90s tended to subvert this trope by always wearing the ''same'' black suit, so that he looked cool from a distance, but [[HumansAreSmelly when you got up close...]]

** And happened again with Skeleton Tree, which is more electronic and baroque than previous albums.
