James Malcolm, a 2016 Billy T nominee, posted a photo to Twitter where he asked followers for help identifying a celebrity.

Yes, that "celebrity" is in fact the legendary Nick Cave, who is in New Zealand to play live. 

The tweet has gone completely bat shit viral with over 4,000 retweets and over 10,000 favourites and the story being picked up by NME and SPIN.

It has even earned comment from David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones who said “Nick Cave! He was in Con Air,” Jones wrote, joking about Cave’s resemblance in both name and appearance to Nicholas Cage.

Mel Bracewell chatted with James about how the now infamous meeting happened. Listen to the interview below.
