Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury return to score Ben Wheatley’s 1970s based epic shoot-out Free Fire, executively produced by Martin Scorsese.
Please note - this is the score only version and does not feature the dialogue or licensed tracks. All score tracks by Barrow & Salisbury are included on this LP.
This is a mail order exclusive version, released in conjunction with Rook films and limited to 300 copies and pressed as a single LP. The vinyl will be pressed on crystal clear with a blood red blob effect. The incredible cover art (pictured above) is by Jay Shaw.
This format will include digital download card featuring unheard bonus material from the score by Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury.
Free Fire sees Barrow and Salisbury take a huge directional curve away from their intense, synth-based Ivor Novello award winning score for Ex Machina, with the composers curating a prog-rock, free-jazz, psychedelic journey influenced by bands such as King Crimson, Camel and Magma and tips its hat to the Lalo Schifrin thriller genre scores of that era.
Geoff Barrow: “It was brilliant to work with Ben Wheatley, Amy Jump and the Rook Films crew again after my experience with them for High Rise. Creating a pub prog band proved great fun for Ben Salisbury and I as it needed to represent the characters in the film that were mostly loose cannons and lunatics and we needed to try and reflect them in all their idiosyncratic glory."
The score features musical luminaries Clive Deamer (Radiohead/Portishead), Billy Fuller (Robert Plant/Beak), Jason Hazeley (Portishead) and Ross Hughes (Portishead), and Jerry Crozier-Cole (Pee Wee Ellis)
