Nick Cave, Blixa Bargeld & Mick Harvey – To Have And To Hold




Blixa Bargeld, Nick Cave & Mick Harvey – To Have And To Hold
Label: The Fine Line
Catalog#: IONIC 15 CD
Format: CD
Country: Europe
Released: 1996
Genre: Electronic
Style: Experimental

A rare find! This one’s a fine score composed by , with from and one-time Bad Seed , as the soundtrack to Aussie director ‘s 1996 film, To Have And To Hold.

also directed 2 amazing recent movies, The Proposition and Ghosts of the Civil Dead, with which Cave was highly involved.

All plus a rare performance from the great ! The great man performs a cover of Dylan’s I Threw It All Away as arranged by one-time Bad Seed !

Of course, we already have a shitload of posts pertaining to one of our long time favourites and and, Nick’s earlier group, the wild and fucked-up .

Even some stuff from the earliest days, from the short lived,

I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this except that the music was composed by Nick Cave and a couple of his Bad Seeds. But when I first listened, one thing became abundantly clear:if you are looking for a traditional Bad Seeds album, you should pass on this. On the other hand, if you enjoy Cave’s work beyond the confines of what you are used to, To Have and To Hold may prove to be a surprise.

Cave and bandmates Blixa Bargeld and Mick Harvey have here woven together a seamless series of mostly instrumental pieces that SOUND like they belong in a movie. This pleasant and relaxing soundtrack climaxes in the song I Threw It All Away, rendered here by the enigmatic Scott Walker.

The only discordant note is sounded by the cacophonous Gangstar Bone. I didn’t see the film, so I have no idea what its place is, but it will rudely shake you from the reverie induced by the rest of the CD.

To Have and To Hold will likely only appeal to Cave completeists or to the musically adventurous. If your tastes are limited to more mainstream music, then you will probably want to avoid this.

Three stars for effort and originality.

Anita Lane – some Great Albums

https://i1.wp.com/www.mutesong.com/store/images/anita_lane.jpg
Some great Albums from wonderful Oz songwriter and performer , who has been involved in cutting-edge and avant-garde music for almost 30 years now!

Anita was born in Melbourne, Australia in the late 1950s and began singing and writing songs at age 16. She was a classmate with Rowland S. Howard who would later from and with .

Lane became Cave’s girlfriend and moved to London with the band in 1980. She co-wrote the lyrics of three songs for The Birthday Party (“Dead Joe”, “Kiss Me Black” and “A Dead Song”) before they imploded in 1983.

https://i0.wp.com/b3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/01030/31/04/1030214013_l.jpg

Lane is sometimes credited as a founding member of and , which was forged from the debris left behind by The Birthday Party’s demise. She had an undeniably strong influence upon Nick Cave and his work, often cited as his “muse”, although her only recorded performance with the band is a ‘cameo’ verse on the Bob Dylan cover “Death Is Not The End” from the album Murder Ballads.

https://i2.wp.com/a185.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/9/m_002c61f908271d05ae5ed5046f390d40.jpgShe co-wrote the lyrics of the title track to the band’s 1984 LP, From Her to Eternity, as well as the lyrics of the song “Stranger Than Kindness” from Your Funeral, My Trial. She also began to perform and record her own songs.

In the great “Ghosts… Of The Civil Dead”, soundtrack by Nick Cave, Blixa Bargeld and Mick Harvey, Anita sings on video A Prison In The Desert.

She worked with the German band Die Haut before recording Dirty Sings under her own name. She was joined on the record by Nick Cave, and Bad Seeds , Thomas Wydler, and , who produced.

With , Lane has recorded a series of albums that showcased the dichotomy between her baby doll voice and the sexual longing of her lyrics. These include a pair of albums of Serge Gainsbourg’s covers, 1995’s The Intoxicated Man and 1997’s Pink Elephants.

Harvey also produced Lane’s 1993 collection, Dirty Pearl, which compiled tracks from Lane’s work with Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Haut, as well as exclusive album tracks.

Harvey co-wrote several songs, including the UK hit single, “The World’s A Girl”. Lane’s most recent collaboration with Harvey is 2001’s Sex O’ Clock.

So we’re real happy to present some great albums from – thanks to Joe le Taxi!

We already posted some Anita stuff here.

First, Anita appears on 3 tracks on the great bootleg Tom Waits,Nick Cave and-friends

Also Anita wrote the lyrics for the English language version of “Blume” from ‘s ‘Malediction‘ album.

https://i1.wp.com/www.mutesong.com/store/images/anita_lane.jpg
The first LP of her’s I heard was the wonderful LP “Black Pearl” (posted below) which was amongst the albums of the year back in 1993!

Contained therein was the wonderful song “Blume

Barry Adamson – Back To The Cat (2008)

Barry Adamson – Back To The Cat (2008)

Another outing from the well travelled Manc, Mr. Adamson, who at various times has been associated with great bands such as Magazine, Visage, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Pan Sonic.

Always inventive and challenging, we love his work.

This new one’s pretty fucking good too!

This guy doesn’t agree though – as far as I can fucking make out! He writes about the LP below in a very over-wordy, indigestible manner. Hey Billy boy, read some Bukowski, Hemingway, Carver, Selby Jr, etc.

Having had neither the desire nor financial capability to undertake a four-week cruise around the tropics it’s difficult to envisage life aboard such an ostentatious vessel. But, aided by the picture-box glow of a few late night infomercials, I imagine it goes something along the lines of: wake up, wander around the deck in the pissing rain / scorching sun, retreat to bar, vomit, eat, endure some god awful cabaret act, vomit once more, sleep (repeat until either land is found or ship capsizes).

Such regimented ventures are almost certainly made for those whose hunger to explore has vanished from world-weary bones, replaced by the need for a satisfactory jaunt around the globe without spark or stimulation. And in many ways Barry Adamson’s eighth solo outing Back To The Cat mirrors this unchallenging nautical vacation, with the former Magazine guitarist and one-time Bad Seeds collaborator taking the helm as the ship’s late night crooner.

For someone who possesses a CV of such disagreeable industry, Adamson has created an insipid, spiritless record that’s the absolute antithesis of his past glories. Bulging with disposable jazz-stained ballads and mould-encrusted soul, the sum of these sleekly produced numbers is an inexplicable conundrum when you consider the Manchester-born conceptualist was at one time accosted by David Lynch to transfer his 1988 debut, Moss Side Story, onto the silver screen. On the basis of this lacklustre affair, it’s safe to assume his digits are now dialled by the likes of Tom Jones or – more distressingly – Mike Flowers Pop.

Full of bruising bass and smouldering, air-tight brass, opener ‘The Beaten Side Of Town’‘s off-the-cuff blues initially disguises the unbearable cheese-mongering to come but once the big band swing of ‘Straight ‘Til Sunrise’ coos its way through the airwaves Adamson’s easy-listening predilection begins to unfold. Smothered by a spread of twinkling keys and saccharine trumpeteering, the track’s swooning lamp-swaying is perfectly executed but lacks the substance to indent the attention before being rejected as little more than the loungey ear-comforting exuded by Bennett or Manilow.

Admittedly, Adamson’s bleak narrative is distinctly more coarse than the cringing granny-wooing pursued by either rubber-faced cripple, but the limp, melodic sheen embedded within ‘Walk On Fire’ silky smooth nu-soul or the decrepit loin-burning of ‘Straight ‘Til Sunrise’ renders his fiery-eyed tirades obsolete. A moment of luscious tenderness resides in ‘I Could Love You’’s tear-duct inducing pleads – a precious, misery-strewn lament that owes much to Redding’s classic ‘I’ve Got Dreams To Remember’ – yet this is a mere blip, one gorgeous ray of sunshine that’s quickly consumed by ‘Civilization’’s miserable MOR-spewing rain cloud.

Album closer ‘Psycho_Sexual’ displays one final hint of menace as Adamson’s vulgar, predatory tones mingle lecherously amidst the smoky haze of trumpet, drum and organ but, having endured the Hamlet-chuffing vapidity that precedes it, this eerie finale lacks the heart-shuddering impact so clearly intended. And that’s perhaps the most mystifying element of this record; for all his banal Radio 2-aping, Barry Adamson is undoubtedly a talented composer with a penchant for voluptuous waves of sound. But once you’ve set sail with Back To The Cat make sure you find the nearest life jacket – you’ll need it a lot sooner than you think.
