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.

Ghosts of the Civil Dead (1989 )

Ghosts of the Civil Dead
Director: John Hillcoat
Writers:
John Hillcoat /
Runtime: 93 mins
Language: English
Country: Australia
IMDb Link: title/tt0095217/

This was the first cinematic collaboration between Aussie director John Hillcoat and . The two teamed up again in 2006 to great effect with the Ozzy Outback Western “The Proposition”.

Cave here scripted the movie, wrote much of the soundtrack (which we’ve already posted … Ghosts of the Civil Dead OST) and put in a convincingly demented performance as as a mad psychotic inmate! Nick’s a very versatile chap! Yap … a true polymath!

This is an amazing fucking movie! It’s years and years since I saw this but I still recall it vividly! Dark and demented! Fucked-up! ….. Yap, exactly how I like em!

Set in a futuristic uber-prison in the wastes of the outback, the movie traces the story of the goings on inside the prison walls and the inevitable flashpoints which lead to an all out eruption of raw rage and violence.

Dark and macabre, and based in truth, the story is told in a traditional dramatic style combined with innovative cinematic techniques as we watch the inmates and guards of this modern, clean and efficient maximum security wing, who are slowly and increasingly brutalised until the fierce eruption of widespread violence.

A great review of the film can be had here; sensesofcinema

The excellent soundtrack for this movie, composed by Cave and a few cronies, can be had here; Ghosts of the Civil Dead OST

One of lil Nicky’s earliest forays into movie soundtracks. This time for a movie co-written by Nick with director John Hillcoat. The two teamed up again last year to great effect with the wonderful, Cave-scripted, Outback Ozzy Western “The Proposition”!



I remember seeing Ghosts of the Civil Dead back in the day, and very impressive it was too. A very dark portrait of a fucked-up futuristic high-security prison somewhere in the wilds of Australia with Mr Cave excellent as a demented psychotic inmate!


The film’s score was actually written by and , (of great German band and , all then members of Cave’s band,

– another long time Cave collaborator, and indeed one time paramour – is involved here, singing (and, on video, in the movie itself) A Prison In The Desert.

This is an excellent and eclectic soundtrack, matching the dark realness of the movie.

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis – The Proposition

Artist – Nick Cave and Warren Ellis

Album – The Proposition Year – 2006

Genre – OST, Classical

Wonderful soundtrack to the -written 2006 movie – a metaphysical outback western!

Like the great Jesse James OST, Cave is greatly helped on this music by Warren Ellis of , and also of the and .

Written and performed by Nick Cave, with Ellis, this album is the soundtrack to the film ‘The Proposition’, which is set in the Australian Outback during the 1880’s. Cave, who also co-wrote the script for the film, delivers here a blues period sound that both accompanies the film perfectly and stands on its own.

A powerful western drama set in the savage Eden of 1880s Australia, The Proposition is an elemental story of family conflict and primal violence, destructive love and divided loyalties. Featuring an international superstar cast including Guy Pearce, Ray Winstone, Emily Watson and Danny Huston, it is directed by John Hillcoat from a specially commissioned script by the globally acclaimed singer-songwriter Nick Cave.

Cave has also composed the film’s soundtrack in conjunction with Warren Ellis, his longtime Bad Seeds collaborator and multi-instrumentalist frontman of The Dirty Three.

Incorporating soft chamber pieces, ghostly moodscapes and whispered laments, these 16 tracks are as starkly beautiful as the landscape of the film. Story and music are closely intertwined.

2. Proposition
3. Road To Banyon
