As a non-Daily Mail reading music lover with eclectic tastes I have no idea who Nick Cave is. Must be from the 80s - the decade that music forgot.
Australian singer, actor, writer and Kylie-killer* Nick Cave laid waste to one of Hove's speed cameras when he crashed his car into it. The incident occurred on Tuesday evening, when the 53-year-old's Jaguar saloon smashed through a barrier on the seafront and took out the innocent tool of governmental oppression, the …
The decade that gave us at least 5 totally new genres with whole new ways of thinking about and making music?
Starting with Hip-hop, house, acid, techno and the unstoppable rise of all genres electronic.
The KLF, Orb, Future Sound of London, Aphex Twin and on and on and on.
Where were you?
Certainly not bouncing up and down in a field with a massive shit-eating grin on your face dancing like a loon to brain-bending sounds until dee morning come.
If you were into your bleeps, it was an impossibly exciting time in music, a time when I regularly heard records that made me think: I didn't know you were allowed to do THAT with a tune!
Yer well within your rights to hate all of that, but music didn't forget the 80s: you just had your earplugs in.
Sheesh, wotta grouch.
(quite like Nick Cave. He's good.)
"Not for the first time do I thank fuck that Goth came along and saved us from *that* shit."
... not really, Goth music started in the late 70s before any of the bands mentioned. Bauhaus, the cure, etc. Plenty of former goths dropped the pointy shoes and learned to "throw shapes in the house of love" during the 80's.
well why not educate yourself and listen to his stuff.
his music always tells a story and i love it.
and this is coming from a guy who'd rather listen to some thhumpy as hell EBM or aggrotek and other flavours of industrial!
never mistake your ignorance about something as a means for measuring the worth of something.
also you'll find that there are many musical gems from the 80's if you look outside the pop/manufactured market.
seems those blonkers you borrowed from the stables serves you well.
His insurance company will pay for the replacement. With the old models no longer being economical or available, new for old will get the saftey partnership a much more fully featured modern camera. (I am assuming it wasn't a new camera in the first place).
So while we can cheer at knocking one out, they group back even stronger!
"Since most Gestapo cameras work by capturing a view of you disappearing into the distance" - actually speed cameras work by sitting there doing nothing, as most motorists are sufficiently aware of their surroundings and in control of their vehicles that they never trigger a camera.

This speed camera is on the only decent stretch of the A259 between Brighton and Worthing, a 30mph hell hole of a road which can take an hour to do a measly 10-15 miles with stop start stop start. The dual carriageway that this is on is virtually useless with a 30mph limit, and only serves to clog up both lanes with slow traffic.
Yeah, the point being why on earth do they have to remake perfectly good films?! Make another installment - base this one on Michael Korby...
Maybe this time they'll go for full CGI for the lead character, instead of only filling in the scenes Brandon Lee wasn't available for first time round.
He probably saw the flash and thought it was a paparazzi judging from his heartfelt tribute to Princess Diana. "If there is ever an opportunity to put into exercise the much-needed practice of lynching journalists and paparazzi--you know, hanging them by the neck from trees until they are dead, then burning their bodies--then that time is now."
That said, I*, for one, welcome** our new antipodean-artiste-appreciating-spelling-bee-winning-sub-head-sanding***-quote-qoutient-quaking*^-modest-modern-and-ambi-modal*^**-journalistic-over-apian****
*** " a microscopic knot in a catastrophic dag " might have yielded Jag lol but Nick was probably not smoking gum leaves that day. When you smoke dags, all the microscopic knots burn too and it makes you cough for hours and tastes really horrible. I've heard.
** whether " Miss Bee " is, in fact a heavily made-up 120kg 50's bloke in a fish-net body-suit who also drives a little taxi-cab and is awaiting gender re-assignment surgery or not and I don't think zhe is.
**** see ** *^ two crackers in one story ! ! *there is no* *^**no, really
