Bronson: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Various Artists on 180g 2LP + Download
Before Nicolas Winding Refn made a worldwide impact in 2011 with his Ryan Gosling starring hit Drive, the maverick filmmaker directed Bronson. The 2008 film, starring Tom Hardy, tells the story of Charles Bronson, a young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a post office and eventually ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement. He has become the most notorious inmate in England.
Bronson is home to many elements that we've come to associate with Winding Refn’s films including its pumping soundtrack. A modern day Clockwork Orange, Bronson features unforgettable music with the recurring electro-pop “Digital Versicolor” by Glass Candy, the menacing “The Electrician” by The Walker Brothers and additional evocative material from the likes of New Order and Pet Shop Boys. Balancing this modern act, the film includes beautiful classical compositions by Giuseppe Verdi, Richard Wagner, Anton Bruckner and more.
Surprisingly this exceptional original motion picture soundtrack has never been available to a wide audience - except for a quick CD release in the UK. Milan Records continues its blossoming relationship with the director by releasing the complete soundtrack to Bronson here on double LP for the very first time!
