‘David my husband has always been totally nutty about Nick Cave and my two daughters, Lucy and Kate, had been begging for piano lessons for years. I had been very reluctant as they both played other instruments which they often struggled to find the time for practice. In fairly typical style, my resolve was weakened and not only did I organise lessons but immediately the girls and I hot-footed it to Theme & Variation to see what was on offer. Well what was I to do? There was a beautiful shiny black Boston that Nick Cave had played at his last Sydney concert, complete with a small scar on some of the keys made by the man himself (I believe caused when he ran the back of his hand along the keys whilst wearing a chunky ring). Needless to say, we bought the piano and Theme and Variation repaired the scratched keys and even organised to have Nick Cave send us a personalised letter with his Anthology. We love our piano. The girls are now playing even more instruments, but they always find the time to play their Boston.’
