v Songs related to Nick Cave


May 1979 Roadrunner has a live gig review of La Femme which says one of

their songs, 'The Boys Next Door', is "a cutting, leering attack on the

subject band. So cutting in fact that I have seen members of the BND

leave a party as La Femme launched into the song." The August 1979

Roadrunner had a letter from La Femme's manager denying that the song

was about the band "and in actual fact, the song's lyrics are concerned

with prostitution. I am aware that friction did exist between the two

bands but this remained on more of a jovial level and did revolve

around the said song", but the editor adds that "in private conversation

with the BND. THEY WERE CERTAINLY under the impression that it was

(about them)." Anyone know anything more about this?

It's on La Femme's self-titled LP: Missing Link MLS351 (1980))

called "Naked at the Buy, Sell and Trade".
