Yet another new band with Nick Cave & Warren Ellis this time called [artist]The Bootleggers[/artist] to go with with the new John Hillcoat film called Lawless. Joining them is [artist]Mark Lanegan[/artist], [artist]Ralph Stanley[/artist], [artist]Emmylou Harris[/artist] and more with no release date yet but it could just be the best thing he's done in years. If you don't believe it go to the link yourself for all the details http://www.twentyfourbit.com/2012/05/nick-cave-friends-lawless-soundtrack/
I was hoping Cave would collaborate with Ellis on "The Wettest County in the World," but it looks like only Cave will be billed as the composer; which is a shame because judging by the book, which was very good, and who's involved in making this film, I think it'll be a great one. Not rivalling "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," of course, but it could compete with "The Proposition."
Anyway, a lovely pair these two are. They should only ever make music together, never apart.
