Sweet Whisperings! News on Filthy Music for David Mackenzie's Spread, Richard Jobson's New Town Killers

Sweeeeet music to my ears! there's glad tidings indeed about music to be used in a couple of Sigma related films.

The Scottish band Isa & the Filthy Tongues has written a few songs that will appear on the soundtracks to David Mackenzie's Spread starring Ashton Kutcher and Anne Heche, and is also featured on Richard Jobson's New Town Killers, which stars Sigma's own Alastair Mackenzie.

First up, as noted on the band's website, "the song 'Big Star' is to be featured in a Hollywood movie called 'Spread' starring Ashton Kutcher and directed by David Mackenzie (Last Great Wilderness / Halam Foe). Movie due out March 2009."

As we know the film gets it's world premiere This MONTH at Sundance on Jan 17, no word when the soundtrack will be released, but for now

Even more from the band, as confirmation that they are indeed doing work for the ever cool Richard Jobson, and appearing on the soundtrack for New Town Killers. Isa & the Filthy Tongues update on their site that they "Have just completed work on a movie by Richard Jobson called 'New Town Killers' which was premiered in Leicester Square Odeon last week. Official release date March 2009.

Richard wrote the lyrics to the Theme song and Martin Metcalfe sings lead vocals on the track (this will be released as a single in Jan 2009).

The band also have a new LP issued in March next year


In a review from the Herald of a concert last week, the paper noted" With the soundtrack to Richard Jobson's forthcoming Edinburgh-set flick, The New Town Killers, already in the can, this home-town show demonstrated a love affair with art-house Americana which singer Stacey Chavis filters through everyone from Grace Slick to Lydia Lunch, Brix Smith, Kim Gordon and beyond.

With the trailer for The New Town Killers flickering behind them, guitarist Martin Metcalfe, bassist Fin Wilson and drummer Derek Kelly kick off with a back-to-basics garage-band instrumental rumble, before Chavis joins in with a semi-spoken word affair off-stage behind a sparkly curtain that looks part festive fun, part Andy Warhol's Factory.

Now, weird thing is that Independent had Youtube yank all the trailers for New Town Killers-BOOOOO EL SUCKO, but apparently said a new trailer is coming...however that was some weeks ago, and the old trailer still is there via the Independent site, so I dunno what the hell is the deal with that, but can NOT wait to hear this song, and get SOUNDTRACKS FOR BOTH FILMS

ROLL ON FOR A ...Killer :P... 2009! :)))
