Haha, this is cos I said I hated Scooter right? Genius.
Anyone seen Cave live? I saw Grinderman last summer and it was amazing (though it was particularly bizarre when someone threw a pair of pants at the stage, only for Nick to pick them up and wear them hanging out of the top of his trousers...). Still haven't seen the Bad Seeds though, would love to after seeing their Glastonbury set on TV.



I thought it was becuase I called Tiesto shite.

Saving this from the verge of second-page obscurity is a new release this week, "White Lunar" - a collection of Nick's work with Warren Ellis. (plus a preview of their score for The Road). Well worth checking out if you're new to their soundtrack work, but also enough new/unreleased material to entice fans.

quote:

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have been creating music together for more than fifteen years, with The Bad Seeds, Grinderman and The Dirty Three. More recently, they have collaborated on soundtracks for such films as The Proposition (2005) and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007). White Lunar, a two CD set to be released by Mute on 21st September 2009, contains music they composed from the aforementioned films, along with a selection of their cinematic scores, including rare and previously unavailable material.

Cave and Ellis’ first soundtrack together was Australian director John Hillcoat’s 2005 quasi-Western, The Proposition (for which Cave also wrote the screenplay). The following year, the pair received a commission to compose the music for a film by another Australian director, Andrew Dominik’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. By the time Dominik’s film came out, Hillcoat had begun his adaptation of The Road (Cormac McCarthy’s novel of a father and son’s trek across a vast wasteland in the aftermath of global catastrophe); once again Cave and Ellis were invited to create music for the film. With The Road as yet unreleased, this album offers a rare opportunity for a sneak preview of the soundtrack.

All three movies, with their epic landscapes and acutely incised psychology, find a correlative sweep and depth in the scores that Cave and Ellis have devised for them, and a poignancy that imbues the films with a timeless aura; the music from this triumvirate is on Disc 1 of the 2 CD set. In addition to these large-scale efforts, Cave and Ellis have also contributed a resonant musical dimension to a pair of lesser known, but striking documentaries, represented on Disc 2.

In 2007, Cave and Ellis scored Geoffrey Smith’s harrowing The English Surgeon, a film tracing Dr. Henry Marsh’s struggle to bring neurosurgery to post-Soviet Ukraine. Amplifying the enterprising doctor’s frustrations and anxieties, his practical genius and ethical dread, the music sighs and whines like the surgical instruments Dr. Marsh shanghais from the NHS. The Girls of Phnom Penh (2009), Matthew Watson’s film investigating Cambodia’s “virginity trade”, describes a sorority of three young sex workers, struggling with degradation and poverty against Cave and Ellis’ urgent sound-scape of humid loops, serrated cymbals and geysers of steam.

Accompanying the soundtracks on the second disc are four pieces drawn from the Cave & Ellis archives, all named after craters: “Magma” is constructed from a chorus of Warrens singing a pitch-shifted riff, “Zanstra” swarms like a storm of hornets besieging a submarine, “Halo” finds pastoral calm in the eager teeth of defeat and “Daedalus” rises sure as the sun, with dewy flute and fluttering piano motes, before a sudden fade. The sequence is conceived as a suite. “Listen to it as you might listen to an instrumental album” recommends Ellis, as “some kind of trip”.

Did you get a copy? I'm a bit peeved because Nick's not doing a book signing in Ireland, only a rather expensive "Evening With" dealie that I can't possibly afford to attend. Bah.

I've been listening to this fellow quite a lot recently. Much of it has been fantastic - particularly The Good Son.

Got Bunny Munro today. Won't get starting it for a while, as I've got a pile of half-read books to finish first (including And The Ass Saw The Angel, which I'm reading at the moment - I'm up for a book discussion when I finish it Rich). Might make nice Christmas reading

oh cool i neglected to bring it to uni with me but i'm going back homw for a weekend soon so i'll get it then - i'd like to have the book to hand if discussing it.
there's a new documentary about the bad seeds showing at Leeds Film Festival - kind of tempted by it.

also i'm liking this Road soundtrack even if it does sound like unused tracks for Jesse James. damn i'm starting to look forward to it again

Getting a bump.

For no reason in particular other than I'm listening to Come Into My Sleep...oh, and the tiny inconsequential reason that the Bad Seeds are X-Men-God-head-done-up-in-Reservoir-Dogs-style-suits mutha-fuckin best band in the wo-hu-hrold! 

There's that too.

To make it topical.  The re-issues are out.  Not a major coup, I'll probably get one of my mates to buy me Henry's Dream for my birthday.  (It's my favourite).

I spotted those reissues earlier this week, tempted to pick up a few. Still annoyed that the extra tracks are on a DVD, but the surround sound version of YFMT (the only one I have on account of it being my favourite Bad Seeds record) is magnificent.

I doubt mans will get any of the Cave reissues, except maybe Firstborn is Dead, as I don't have it on CD. Even Mick Harvey pretty much said it's pointless upgrading.

Grinderman's second album has been given a release date, finally. It'll be out on September 13th. They'll be doing a European tour starting late in September, too, so I'll try to get to one of the dates. Could anyone give a decent estimate of the ticket prices?

Great news, more Cave is always a good thing (potentially a new Bad Seeds album next year? Hopefully...). Lack of Irish dates is rubbish though, they're one of the best live bands I've ever seen.

Nice one, £25 is less than I thought it'd be. I'll try and get to the Hammersmith Apollo.

The Boatman's Call is a magnificent work.What're boarders' opinions on The Birthday Party? I'm split on whether or not I like them.

I don't think they're as good as the Bad Seeds (particularly since the first five Bad Seeds albums essentially perfect/expand the Birthday Party sound, imo) but there's some great stuff in there - the Mutiny/Bad Seed EP is the peak of their career I reckon. Though the late, great Rowland Howard's two solo albums are even better if you ask me, well worth seeking out.

You went to a boarding school, Olaf? Unless boarders means something else.

I also think that Mutiny/Bad Seed is their best work.

I love the Birthday Party, but I prefer Cave's lyrics from the Bad Seeds onwards. Tracey Pew's probably my favourite bass player, though.

Nice article that anyway, judging from Quantick's hyperbole and stuff I've read elsewhere, Grinderman 2 sounds like a filthy, noisy, fucked up psychedelic monster. Can't wait to see them in November. This teaser's pretty cool too:

No Are You The One I've Been Waiting For or Mercy means the Uncut list is flawed, as is the choice of We Call Upon The Author instead of hang On To Yourself to represent Dig Lazarus Dig.
