Graham Coxon announces
'It's Pink Floyd with fangs,'
guitarist tells NME.COM
has revealed he has recorded the score for a new British film.
The guitarist, who plays London's
Barbican Centre this Saturday (November 28), told
NME.COM that the film is due out in the near
future, though he stopped short of revealing the title.
"It's for a film coming out relatively soon, it's a British
sort of 'freak thriller', I suppose you could call it,"
Coxon explained, before comparing the soundtrack to "Pink
Floyd with fangs".
Coxon added that his 45-minute score includes
several covers of nursery rhymes.
"They [film producers] gave me some themes to play with, famous
old nursery rhymes and folk songs that I wanted to muck about
with. I came up with 13 or 14 tracks, so about 45 minutes of
music – it's a weird, strange kind of album."

also includes his thoughts on the future of Blur – pick
