Ahead of the release of their new album Everything Dies (pre-order here) we caught up with Nervus to find out their 12 favourite pieces of music from film soundtracks. Firstly though, check out their new single, ‘The Way Back’.
Goblin – Tenebre
From Dario Argento’s slasher of the same name, this Goblin tune gets heavy rotation in the van and was apparently a real Italo-disco hit when it hit the clubs.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor – East Hastings
Wendy Carlos – Ode To Joy
It’s horrible and deeply unsettling so we love it.
Bernard Hermann – Cape Fear
The master. An absolute creepstorm.
Survivor – Burning Heart
This is the most ridiculous song, from the best film of all time: Rocky 4. Without Rocky 4, Nervus wouldn’t exist. We actually covered this.
The Centurions – Intoxica
Taken from John Waters’ Pink Flamingos. Absolute ripper.
Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack – Sweet Transvestite
Sass-rock from Tim Curry in that wanker Richard O’Brien’s great film.
Disasterpeace – It Follows
Best soundtrack of a modern horror in a long time. The absolute pinger.
Lalo Schifren – Theme From The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Ok so it’s not technically from a film but it’s still the best. “It’s all about the tabla.” – Paul
John Carpenter – Assault On Precinct 13
Synthtastic from one of the all time best.
Kavinsky – Nightcall
Not a massive fan of Drive but this song is unreal.
Philip Glass – Koyaanisqsatsi
All of it.
