Volume 7 in the Cineola series is the original soundtrack to the critically acclaimed feature film Muscle by director Gerard Johnson, which premiered at the London Film Festival in 2019. Lead actor Cavan Clerkin also picked up the best actor award at the prestigious Tallinn Film Festival in November 2019.
A psychological thriller that’s dripping in sweat, tears, and testosterone, Muscle is the story of Simon, an unhappy, unambitious office worker whose life is gradually taken over by Terry, his new, very hands-on personal trainer who reveals himself to be more committed — and more dangerous — than Simon could have imagined.
This deluxe Cineola edition contains a CD of the original music, and a hardback 84pp book containing over 70 photographic stills and set location pictures from the film plus director’s notes from Gerard Johnson and a foreword by film writer, Jason Wood.
The first track from Muscle is ‘I WANT 2 B U’, released as a 7″ vinyl single for Record Store Day 2020.
The soundtrack is subtly gorgeous…by THE THE, art rock’s most ungoogleable band
A low dissonant score from THE THE creates the unsettling atmosphere of classic dystopian sci-fi
The score by THE THE serves up sophisticated, effective mood music, culminating in a final song, ‘I WANT 2 B U’, that, playing over trippy visuals, is intoxicating.
Extraordinary…Remember the shock of seeing Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler after his wilderness years? We are in that sort of territory\
A striking and atmospheric piece of work that crackles with tension…with echoes of Fight Club
