During this period in his life, Cave was steeped in heroin addiction, perhaps evidenced by the melancholy, desperate mood of this album.
Written By Nick Cave.
The album, originally scheduled as a double EP, was released on CD with a different song list and an extra theme, Scum. The publication of the album coincided with a period in which Cave suffered dependence on heroin.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Stranger Than Kindness 1986.
Translations: French, Italian. I am a crooked man. And I've walked a crooked mile. Night, the shameless widow. Doffed her weeds, in a pile. A thousand Marys lured me. To feathered beds and fields of glover.
