Nick Cave Rides on with Skateboard Collection

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Bonnaroo 2014
FilmMagic/FilmMagic for Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds performs onstage at That Tent during day 3 of the 2014 Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival on June 14, 2014 in Manchester, Tennessee.

Nick Cave is a freakish all-rounder, with various albums, novels, screenplays and on-screen roles to his credit. Now, the veteran Australian artist can boast his own limited-edition skateboard collection.

The alternative rock hero has teamed with Fast Times for the new skateboard line, which carries lyrics from "Nature Boy," and artwork by San Francisco's Chuck Sperry. According to Fast Times, Cave is a regular visitor to its inner-city Melbourne store and he's "always generous with his time and support." 

The ARIA Hall of Fame inducted artist, who has fronted the Birthday Party, the Bad Seeds, and Grinderman, has "been a huge inspiration to everyone at Fast Times and continues to influence us with his music and creativity," according to the skate specialists. Cave even took the time to pose for this in-store photo with the boards, which are priced at Australian $99.95 ($81).

Cave and Fast Times agreed "Nature Boy," from the performer's exquisite 2004 double album Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus, best represented the Melbourne skate scene and the "vibe" of the store. "Nature Boy" features on the accompanying Fast Times clip below. The Fast Times X Nick Cave Deck and t-shirt are available from
