J'ai découvert L.C. dans les disques de mes parents, et je suivais mes potes plus que mon frère, presque la même histoire, avec le même disque.

Nick Cave "Les Inrockuptibles"- June '94 :
"I discovered Leonard Cohen with Songs of Love and Hate. I listened to this record for hours in a friend's house. I was very young and I believe this was the first record that really had an effect on me. In the past, I only listened to my brother's records. I liked what he liked, followed him like a sheep."

"Leonard Cohen was the first one I discovered by myself. He is the symbol of my musical independence. I remember these other guys that came to my friend's house that thought Songs of Love and Hate was too depressing. I've realized that this 'depression' theory was ridiculous. The sadness of Cohen was inspirer, it gave me a lot of energy. I always remember all this when someone says that my records are morbid or depressing."
