  • During the writing and shooting of Jim Jarmusch's DEAD MAN, a surreal spiritual journey through the old West starring Johnny Depp, he listened continually to the music of Neil Young, dreaming of tapping the artist to provide the film's soundtrack. Fate smiled on Jarmusch (and the rest of us) when Young agreed. Performing solo, Young recorded a series of moody, introspective instrumental pieces for the film, centered mostly around his distinctive electric guitar sound, but also utilizing pump organ and piano. The music evokes the hazy, unreal atmosphere of the film, as DEAD MAN's examination of the essential strangeness of nature is a longtime Young theme. Bits of dialogue from the film are interspersed throughout, but are poetic enough to enchance, rather than interrupt, the flow.
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.48) - "[A] fine example of how resourceful and inventive a musician Young can be, given ample inspiration and room to manoeuvre. DEAD MAN was entirely improvised in real time..."

Melody Maker (4/6/96, p.37) - "...Listening to it is an odd sensation. Young has created a rumbling, harrowing noise that makes you want to use the phrase 'distant thunder' without it sounding like a cliche....When Depp reads [William Blake's poetry] you feel awed and excited....he is both moved and moving..."

NME (Magazine) (3/2/96, p.49) - 7 (out of 10) - "...Young is crackling like a campfire primed with gelignite. Occasionally, the urge to explode and explore is too great and, pump-organ at the ready, Young tramples all in his path with...a fistful of feedback....Encouraged by Young's...solemn scratchings, Blake's apocalyptic visions set up home in Jarmusch's weirdsville west..."
