Good to have Matt Johnson back on this sampler for a seemingly geezer-type movie now available starring Craig Fairbrass who acts in geezer-type movies. Matt likes to write music for movies now and his dramatic music is extremely well suited.
This 4 tracker is big on atmosphere.
‘I Want To B U‘ is a mid 50’s Doris Day pastiche with Matt’s cracked vocal, followed by the delightfully monikered ‘Bestiality Brothel‘, crackling and fuzzing with anticipation, electronic mood, whilst the guitar roughness of ‘Vicious Circus‘ has some portentoueness baked in.
And we finish the sampler with the sweet guitar picking and washing synths of ‘Sentimental Jouney‘, some of this is whimsy but there’s always a portentous feel, with The The, there always was. Just right for this movie? Certainly just right for these times.
