Edgar Wright’s Rom-Com-Zom turned 10 Years old in September, and we are proud to celebrate this important milestone with a milestone of our own: we have pressed the complete score for SHAUN OF THE DEAD – never before released in ANY format – on gorgeous 180 Gram Vinyl.
While aware that they were working on a comedy, composers Daniel Mudford & Pete Woodhead wanted to make a score that was deadly serious and let the comedy do its own thing.
"We wanted to "play a straight bat," as the English say, and treat the film as though it was a sincere and genuinely terrifying scenario." says Mudford.
In doing so, they crafted a score that fits in perfectly along side the great horror scores that inspired it.
Pete & Dan’s band, ‘The Sons Of Silence,’ was previously featured in Edgar Wright’s television show Spaced before it became part of the behind the scenes soundtrack to the writing, and casting portions of production of the film.
"Indeed, many of the doomier, dubbier tracks of from The Sons of Silence would blend in perfectly with my playlist, made up of John Carpenter scores, Goblin rock outs and library tracks from Dawn of The Dead.
So even before Dan and Pete were definitely scoring the movie, they were already scoring the movie." Says Edgar.
Featuring artwork by Jock, and complete with liner notes by Edgar Wright, and composers Daniel Mudford & Pete Woodhead, this premiere release is a must have for fans of the film, and of horror soundtracks.
