    That’s Warren Ellis from ‘The Dirty Tree’ and Nick cave’s ‘Bad Seeds’. He’s one of my all time favourite musicians. Snappy dresser too!

      Just in case anyone doesn’t realise the missing letter, the band is ‘The Dirty THree.’

    That bloke looks an awful lot like Warren Ellis from the Dirty Three and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

    I think I recall an interview in which he said he lived in Paris.

    A new Dirty Three album is long overdue.

    Good luck to him regardless.

    Wow. Those young ones know how to work it, don’t they! Such beauty and confidence. I love that the girl’s jacket sleeves are too long — like she found those boots and KNEW they would go perfectly with her big sister’s leather jacket.

    Rasputin up there has a pretty good thing going. Coolest dad in the universe being just one of them. Kids with long hair and plenty of attitude isn’t hurting either.

    The man looks like my father, but my father’s beard is more short… I must confess I feel a little bit of shame about him. But now I am gonna face this fact with another concept. Because of this picture I will change my point of view about old hippies. Thanks a lot!

    I love both of them. I agree with whoever said the whole family looks badass… and I love the boy on the left’s double layering and puma shoes.

    The too-long sleeves are just enough of a mistake to be perfect.

    I am jealous of the kids’ jackets/coats. I never had such cool ones when I was kid. Heh, even as an adult, mine aren’t as cool. =)

    I think the leather jacket on the girl in the bottom picture is from the junior’s section of Zara. I have the same one, and I bought it because the sleeves are so long! (I’m 5’11″.)

    God I love Warren. It’s most certainly him because I recognise his kids from last time I saw him play.

    I concur – he makes every other cultivated scenester seem pale in comparison. Bless!

    i know everyone’s said, but damn, warren ellis. one of my heroes. saw him play almost a month ago on mt buller. magic experience. the next day i was looking out of my hotel window and see this family of people walking by, all wearing black jeans. faces were obscured by trees, but when they appeared it was nick cave, warren ellis and one of them’s wife and kids.

    something makes me think they could be cave’s kids, cos he has two twin sons who are young

    GREAT scarves and GREAT beards are both trends. The both keep you warm in winter AND are an outward expression of oneself.
