Nick Cave’s The Sick Bag Song began as a series of poetic musings scribbled on airplane barf bags during the Bad Seeds 2014 tour of North America. Now it’s a full-fledged book, with a new limited edition version just published. In honor of that, filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard — the team behind the great Nick Cave pseudo-documentary 20,000 Days On Earth — have made a series of five short films featuring Cave reading from a different city’s chapter in the book. The spooky “Los Angeles” video shows a weirdly refracted Cave looking (as always) like a dapper vampire as he talks over an unsettling ambient score. Watch it below.
