MUSIC ON FILM & SOUNDTRACK ALBUM: Kick Ass 2 – Justice Forever vs Child Traffickers Clip featuring the track ‘St. Snot’

Here’s the clip for Kick Ass 2 featuring my track ‘St. Snot‘.

The track is an arrangement of ‘When The Saints Go Marching In‘ in a Punk Style by Barrie Gledden, Kes Loy & me. It featured heavily in the film as an appropriate theme for Christian Vigilante ‘Colonel Stars and Stripes’.

It’s a fight scene & contains strong language, so discretion is advised.

The track is also available on the Soundtrack album as ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’ by St. Snot

My original blog about the film is here.

If you like the track you can listen & buy it here.

Summer Mixing 2014

Wizard of Oz

Wizard of Oz

Following a short family break to France, I got back in the studio & stuck straight into mixing the latest project for AudioNetwork (plus a couple of extra tracks) – Dirt Rock.

After a few days away from the studio, it’s always hard getting back into the swing of things… I often find myself asking ‘what if I’ve forgotten how to do it…? Which bit? All of it!’, but it soon comes flooding back & before you know it you’re strapped into the mixing chair being ‘Wizard of Oz’ and it’s all coming together and sounding great… Then, after a few weeks, you feel like you need a break… again…

I jest of course… I love what I do, and there’s so much good music going on right now that it’s easy to forget the ‘man-hours’ that goes into making the music and albums.  But it’s a great learning experience… trying new ideas, approaches & different takes on the whole process. Always fun, never dull (with the added exception of maybe Melodyne)… Of course, you have your ‘face-palm’ moments but generally making music really is the best job in the world!

Thanks for stopping by… more new music coming soon…

Recording Strings at Castleford Chairworks Studio, January 2014

 

With the MoR Pop project near to completion, in December 2013, Barrie Gledden & I headed down to Northants to see David Tobin. David’s a fellow AudioNetwork composer & was tasked with helping out & scoring our string arrangements for the project.

As mentioned in my last blog, this project has been a long time in the making & the strings were to be the icing on the cake.

We spent a long day with David talking through each track & firming up ideas which he’d then turn into scores and arrangements in our absence.

A date was set for the end of January 2014 at The Chairworks Studio, Castleford for the actual recording.

Music on ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’…

Anchorman 2

With the upcoming release of ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ due in UK cinemas on 20th December, Paramount have released a number of anti-piracy ‘shorts’ to go along with the film’s release.

The below teaser ‘Bringing You A Moment Worth Paying For’ features my track ‘Slow‘… A track written in the 70’s style of Porn Music… so I’m told… Enjoy!
