We get a lot of requests to hear our film scores in their entirety,so finally we have started to upload them to SoundCloud.At the moment we are streaming the scores to 'Creep" , 'Love and Death on Long Island' and 'Life at the Edge'.
Rocket Man has been one of the most enjoyable shows we′ve worked on. A bitter/sweet comedy with a superb script and cast. For us it was a great opportunity to write a lighter and more whimsical score.
Creep was a breakthrough for us. Although we′ve written music for several movies, this was the first to hit the multiplexes in a big way ,with over 300 prints in the UK alone. The film did well, reaching number 4 at the UK box office. Someone asked us whether the daily diet of gratuitous mutilation, slashings and stabbings was having any effect on us - our reply - "SHUT IT OR WE′LL RIP YOUR THROAT OUT AND STAMP ON YOUR FUCKING ENTRAILS"
Wire in the Blood is a seriously cool series to work on. Originating and based on Val McDermids′ "Wire in the Blood" cult crime novels, the quality and originality of the writing is the key to its success... not to mention the performances of Robson Green, an actor who is always developing and moving on.
Owning Mahowny was Phillip Seymour Hoffmans first leading role in a movie. The film was directed by Richard Kwietniowksi - who we′ve worked with on many occasions. The score features the unique playing of trumpet legend Jon Hassell.
XX XY is a ‘rites of passage’ down to earth kind of film. NY director Austin Chick didn′t want conventional score - he wanted ‘tracks’ that fitted certain scenes. The leading man is played by Mark Ruffalo - at the time a relatively unknown actor - but now a major Hollywood actor.
Life at the Edge is a National Geographic Special about the Artic. It was filmed by Lisa Truitt, who spent a year living on the ice cap, and it really is a visual feast, and fantastic to write to. We received an Emmy award for the music.
Hometime was an opportunity to produce some great songs written by Alison and Pete Glenister, plus a couple written by Carlton McCarthy - a seminal figure in the Bristol music scene of the nineties. Alison was nominated in the Best Female Singer category at the Brit Awards following the release of the album.

We recorded the Flies album over a period of two years - initially it was just a couple of tracks we had written over a few evenings with our friend Sean Cook - but it quickly began to develop a sound & feel & momentum of its′ own. At the heart of it are some truly great vocals and lyrics from Sean.
Karma Coma from the Massive Attack album ‘Protection’ is our most commercially successful track. We provided the musical backing for the vocals of Tricky & Robert Del Naja. We worked on a number of tracks with Massive during this period.
This was based on a novel by Gilbert Adair, and beautifully translated into a wry, sometimes black comedy by director Richard Kwietniowski. Great leading performances from John Hurt and Jason Priestley. The score was augmented by some terrific string arrangements of our material by Simon Hale.
44 Inch Chest. The new film from the writers of “Sexy Beast”. With a stellar cast.Very dark and funny at the same time. We teamed up with Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack for this one - under the name ‘100 Suns’. The other writer on the film is the legendary Angelo Badalamenti.
Place of Execution. You can’t create great drama without great writing. This is a stunning adaptation of Val McDermids’ novel , brilliantly directed by Daniel Percival. One of the featured instruments on the score is a ‘psaltery’ -which is a 24 string bowed zither type of thingy . Great sound though.
We've worked with The Bolex Brothers on a number of films. This is a dark,twisted,yet enchanting version of the classic fairy tale. It was shown before the 9pm watershed and attracted a record number of complaints to the BBC.Must be good .... !
