Playlist: Nervus go to the Movies

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

Pure evil.

 

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.
