Nick Cave has paid tribute to the legendary Rowland S Howard with a version of Shivers in London last night.
The performance was part of an evening dedicated to Howard, where artists like Mick Harvey, JP Shilo, Harry Howard and Genevieve McGuckin, Conrad Standish, Bobby Gillespie, HTRK’s Jonnine Standish and Lydia Lunch all took part in Pop Crimes show.
Cave was not originally listed as a performer, seemingly surprising guests at the Southbank Centre. Watch the performance below.
The track was penned by Howard at just 16 and was released on The Boys Next Door's debut album, Door, Door, in 1979. The group, which featured Howard, Cave, Harvey, Phill Calvert and Tracy Pew, later became The Birthday Party.
