Nick Cave, John Cale & Chrissie Hynde "Songwriters Circle " – from BBC TV 1999

Nick Cave, John Cale & Chrissie Hynde
Recorded on 9th July 1999
Songwriters Circle
BBC Live
Subterania Club, London

TV Broadcast

Three great artists (well, at least two! But some of Chrissie’s stuff is tops too, so let’s categorise her thusly also!) illustrate their songwriting craft in this special TV show broadcast by BBC TV in UK back in 1999.

They each rattle off four classics.

I remember taping this on video when it was first broadcast! I couldn’t even play the fucking tape now even if I could find it!

  1. This has just been shown on BBC4 tonight as part of a Nick Cave night, although I only saw the last 20 minutes or so. Wish I saw the whole programme but I was watching Predator on another channel! So I’m glad to see someone has made it available.
