hey!

hows it goin ? we have finally emerged from an intense period of work and i’m pleased i can now tell you about it (as it is official).  we have written the score for a film called “Nowhere boy”.  it’s about John Lennon as a boy and stars Aaron Johnson, Kristen Scott-Thomas and Anne Marie Duff.  it’s Sam Taylor-Wood’s first feature film and it’s truly amazing that they gave us the oppotunity to do this. we are all really excited about going to abbey road  studios soon to record  the strings with the full orchestra.  the film is closing the london film festival and is premiered on 29th october at odeon leicester square.  now our work on the film is almost finished, we will carry on writing the  Goldfrapp album.

what a beautiful day it was today,  i hope there’s more of that gorgeous autumnal sunshine over the weekend.

love to you all and catch up soonxxxxA

imagine this

John Lennon once said he wasn’t one for doing autobiography, but a new film – from the Bafta-winning writer of the Ian Curtis biopic Control – will take up the challenge with a controversial retelling of his early life.

Matt Greenhalgh, whose film about the Joy Division frontman won an award for special achievement by the director of a debut feature, will develop Nowhere Boy, a film based on a book by Lennon’s half-sister, Julia Baird, which questions the conventional account of his upbringing.

Lennon was raised by his Aunt Mimi, who disapproved of his mother Julia, her younger sister, for “living in sin”. Baird’s book claims Aunt Mimi’s disapproval was driven by jealousy, dating back to childhood sibling rivalry.

“When looking for my next project I was wary of musical protagonists – but when John Lennon was floated, that vanished. He is beyond music; above it even,” said Greenhalgh.

“And his early life as told in Julia’s book took me into a world that illuminated so much about this legendary genius. I could see the drama and film immediately. The women in his life, the men who weren’t, the birth of rock’n’roll; all imposing on a brilliantly complicated adolescent mind.

“The nagging questions, the icy secrets, the need for love. John’s angst and anger pouring out into his music, his thankful salvation. Without this story we would never have heard the Beatles – can you imagine that?”
