Review of Bunny And The Bull Original Motion Soundtrack by The Ralfe Band released through Ghost Ship Records.
'Bunny And The Bull' is the road movie that barely leaves the confines of the protagonists Kings Cross flat. It is directed by The Mighty Boosh's Paul King and, although you may not notice, is apparently filmed in Nottingham. It takes you on a slightly surreal, and sometime dark, recollective journey through parts of Europe recounting some less than salubrious tales of a misspent youth. (Visits to The German Museum Of Cutlery and The National Shoe Museum Of Poland keep the surrealism at the fore). Edward Hogg stars as Stephen and Simon Farnaby as Bunny with cameos from the Boosh's very own Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt plotted in for added interest and intrigue. The film, released last November, and soon to be out on DVD, has had a mixed bag of reviews, generally giving the 'attempt' at a big screen breakthrough a positive, if not overwhelmingly enthusiastic, critique.
The soundtrack to the movie has been composed and performed by The Ralfe Band. After two previous studio albums, 'Swords' and 2008's 'Attic Thieves', this could be seen as somewhat of a departure from the norm. However The Ralfe Band have obviously been chosen with great care and forethought with regard to their ultimate capability to interpret such an individual, very English eccentric, project. Oly Ralfe, he of the bands name, has previously even done a spot of film directing himself and some of their previous work has been said to be akin to a David Lynch movie. (Praise indeed).
