Usually it’s the Yanks that ruin great British things with their over-the-top crass reimaginings. Death At A Funeral, The Office, Absolutely Fabulous, Shameless, the list of Hollywood adaptations and remakes is endless, and nearly every attempt by the Yanks has fallen short of the intelligent original. This time though, the Brits have royally fucked up. BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe has curated a new score for the film featuring; Chvrches, Foals, SBTRKT, Jon Hopkins, Laura Mvula, the 1975, Baauer, BANKS, Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, Eric Prydz, the Neighbourhood, and ZCC. The mere mention of those Pommy wankers The 1975 or Bastille can send me over the edge, so to think of their shit in place of the, quite frankly, perfect original soundtrack makes me want to punch mouths. The movie, along with the new score will air on 30 October on BBC Three.
Here’s a little reminder of what Zane Lowe is ruining.
