Boz is back – hoorah!
And so Boz Hayward goes spaghetti western a-la Morricone with an epic soundtrack instrumental combining Dan Bridgwood-Hill’s violin and Rick Burrows’ trumpet over his relentless guitar and Rob Haynes’ galloping percussion underwoven by Phil Robinson’s beautiful boomy guitarron bass. ‘The Franco Nero Mud Show’ was written as a score to a film Boz was sent by the team behind Video Jam and he performed this live to the film screening at the Video Jam 2 event at Antwerp Mansion, Manchester in April 2012.
A big fan of Django since his student days in the mid-80s and, separately, of Sergios Leone and Corbucci, and of Ennio Moricone’s spagetti western music, this is Boz paying homage to these influences on his song-writing and film-making.
‘The Franco Nero Mud Show’ is from the forthcoming instrumental album ‘BozVideoJams’ (working title) which has all 8 of Boz’s contributions to the event from January 2012 to April 2013. This will be released in autumn 2013.
Boz was unknowingly tapping into the zeitgeist with Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ being made at the time. Franco Nero, star of the original 1960s ‘Django’ spaghetti western, has a deserved cameo in Django Unchained.
The video associated with this ‘The Cotton on Lord Hereford’s Knob’ is presented below for your consideration – the new single is the soundtrack……and rather fine it is too…..
