Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ “Red Right Hand,” is one of my favorite Nick Cave songs, and it also manages to remind me of the Library Bar on Avenue A, a bar which was one of my regular haunts for a good year and a half or so. Kristin, one of my regular bartenders there had a couple of CDs with her mixes on them – one of which included the Castaways’ “Liar Liar,” and this one. And of course, there was a copy of the Misfits‘ Collection. I heard “Where Eagles Dare,” at least twice a night.
I can think of being there with my buddy Tom drinking excessively there while hearing a lot of random things but this one in particular brings back a lot of memories. For whatever reason it felt like it fit the bar perfectly.
