Never one to surrender to expectations, Nick Cave has reportedly teamed up with an Australian skateboarding company Fast Times to create a special edition board featuring lyrics from The Bad Seeds’ Abattoir Blues track Nature Boy.
According to the Fast Times website, via Stereogum, the 57-year-old musician is both a “Good friend and Customer” and collaborated with the company to produce a small collection. They then decided that Nature Boy “best suited the Melbourne Skate Scene and vibe of Fast Times” and so used it as the inspiration for the collection.
The board, which you can see below, features images from the San Francisco artist Chuck Sperry as well as Nature Boy lyrics, “she moves among the flowers/she floats upon the smoke” and “she moves among the shadows/she moves me with just one look.”
Also below is a promotional video featuring the board in action soundtracked by Nature Boy. The Nick Cave skateboard can be yours for $99.95 or for those not very skate-inclined there’s also a t-shirt up for grabs for $49.95. Head to the Fast Times website for more details.
