THE HOT POTATO review - first by Daniel Schweiger (selecting

tastier on one’s musical plate than a mashed “Potato” that
whips together the likes of “The Knack,” “The Wrong Box” and
“The Ipcress File” with spot-on success, yet allows you to
hear Farley’s own witty, well-performed Abbey Road voice
through the brilliant Barry homage."
While John Mansell also gave best 10/10
rating to the score: "I recommend this soundtrack whole
heartedly and without any reservations whatsoever. and if I
was able to give it a higher rating than 10 I would."
..and Danny Gonzalez in Examiner (with B+
rating): "album is a pleasant and enjoyable listen that is
breezy and delictible. Scores likes this one are special
because of how music takes us back to a time and place where
everything was unique and cool."

MovieScore Media will release
Guy Farley's jazzy score for long expected THE HOT POTATO
digitally on September 11th, with CD coming about week later.
You can watch the making of here. The album was just announced
by the label and here is the the album's description from:
MovieScore Media’s fifth album with
the talented British composer Guy Farley presents a very
elegant film music homage to the great caper scores of the
1960s and 70s. The Hot Potato, starring Ray Winstone, Colm
Meaney and Jack Huston, takes place in 1969 and Guy Farley –
himself a big fan of the film scoring aesthetics of that
period – finds inspiration in the best of British soundtrack
hip: John Barry, Laurie Johnson, Ron Grainer… The result is a
very entertaining score with an infectious main theme and lots
of underscoring for big band and orchestra. Recorded at the
legendary Abbey Roady Studio 1 (where many of those original
1960s soundtracks were recorded in the first place), The Hot
Potato is one of this year’s most charming scores and one
where soundtrack fans are invited to share the love of film
music with the score’s composer! If you like soundtracks such
as The Persuaders, The Saint or James Bond you will have a
smile on your lips from the first downbeat of The Hot Potato!

Farley recently completed his score for upcoming documentary
MIRACLE RISING and is currently scoring new SKYFALL advert
directed by Baillie Walsh and featuring Daniel Craig. Guy's
Bond-inspired big brassy score will be recorded next Friday at
Abbey Road. UPDATE: here is a photo from Bond advert sessions.
Here is what Guy said about MIRACLE
RISING: "I have just finished my score which I wrote with
Craig Dodds for Miracle Rising. Because of the diverse nature
of Craigie who, in my opinion, is one of the most innovative
and brilliant producers of today, our score is different and
the result of two very different musical people and their
respective ideas. Almost all the cues were recorded as a
performance, sometimes live, sometimes electronic. We both
sang, we played various instruments from thumb pianos to
bells, percussion and tubes. The title theme is beautiful
featuring a 10 year old African girl using the first words
from the SAfrican anthem. We are hoping that Jay-Z will now
get involved in a full song version of it, all in progress."
Stay tuned for more updates -
including two new movie projects, which are currently being
discussed and will be announced soon.

June I am running a half marathon in Kenya to raise money for
Tusk Trust to send 3 Black Rhinos born in UK to Mkomazi in
Tanzania. I will be hugely grateful for any donations no
matter how small or large!This photo was taken in the Congo
last June 2011 where 3 Gorillas were being returned to the
protected national park at Lesio Louna run by The Aspinall
Foundation, one of Tusk Trusts beneficiaries. This year I am
raising money to send 3 Black Rhinos born in UK at Port Lympne
to Mkomazi National Park in Tanzania. See photos. In 1975
there were over 500 wild Black Rhino in this remote and
inaccessible game reserve. By 1989 there were none, all killed
by poachers. With the incredible work of Tony and Lucy
Fitzjohn there are now 17 Black Rhino in this protected
national park. I have been there, it is a paradise for Black
Rhino, their heritage.
Please give anything you can to
support Tusk Trust who have made and continue to make projects
like this possible."

During last few months Guy
Farley was focusing more on scoring short adds for CARLING and
COMPARE THE MEERKAT campaigns. You can watch successful
commercial 'The Journey of Courageousness' here. The theme
used was originally intended as the theme for 1999's WALK WITH
LIONS but wasn't used. It was recorded last year as one of the
three CARLING commercials but only two of them were finished
and this theme therefore found its place in COMPARE THE
MEERKAT commercials. Unfortunatelly due to time limitations
the THE JOURNEY OF COURAGEOUSNESS wasn't recorded with the
live orchestra but "only" studio samples. The music was
composed by Guy Farley and produced by composer Christopher
Slaski. On the other hand, Guy Farley also produced music for
MARKS AND SPENCER Christmas commercials, which was composed by

three recently completed CARLING commercials in UK cinemas and
the visitors of this website can check two photos from the

7, 2009 / 8:40 PM (CET)
Farley will be at Air Lyndhurst Hall in London tomorrow to

who your mates are" series. His short and epic score in

properly documented by a camera crew. To give you some insight
about the style and scope of Carling's "You know who your
mates are" commercials, you can watch previous two from this
series on YouTube here and here.

finishing his score for upcoming THE FLIRTING CLUB, which will
feature numberous exotic and non-traditional instruments. No

KNIFE EDGE original motion
picture score will be released by MovieScore Media on October
13 shortly before UK DVD release of the movie scheduled on
October 19th. Pre-order links coming as soon as they are
available. So far, feel free to listen to three samples
available in the audio section and check the tracklist
included in the discography. The description of the score from
MovieScore Media's website follows:
"We have released several of Guy
Farley's gorgeous scores before (Land of the Blind, The
Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, The Flock), but our new
one is probably our best - and possibly Guy's finest film
score to date. The orchestral score for Anthony Hickox
thriller Knife Edge, starring Joan Plowright, Hugh Bonneville,
Natalie Press, Jamie Harris and Tamsin Egerton, is an
affectionate hommage to the classic genre film scores of the
1970s: you will hear influences of John Barry in the wonderful
love theme, of Jerry Goldsmith in the atmospheric horror
writing and of Bernard Herrmann in the tense suspense music
and title theme. In our opinion, this is a score that is a
must-have for any fan of old-school film music at its best -
the difference being that it is actually written for a new
film! Our release of the CD co-incides with the UK DVD release
of the film on October 19."

Farley if you place your order through La-La Land's website.
In the meantime you can finally listen
to four cues from unused score for TSOTSI in the audio
section. Here is what Guy Farley said about his music and the
whole situation around this movie:
"This was my re-score for the producers
of the movie and was not part of the commercial release of the
film where the first score was used. I'm not sure if you know
the full story but in very simple terms the director chose his
composers to score the film and fiercely stood by this score.
I was commissioned by the producers to write a new score which
they attempted to make final but after Tsotsi starting winning
awards with the original music there was no way my score was
going to have a chance, especially without the directors
support. In fact he never heard my score."

Farley about his recently completed score for Il Bene e il
Male (aka The Good and the Evil):
'Il Bene e Il Male' - 'The Good and
the Evil' is a 12 part TV drama, which has now been broadcast
in Italy. It has been sold around the world but I'm not sure
where and when it will be broadcast. I wrote all the main
themes, for the 4 main characters and the show itself. I then
scored the first 4 episodes completely to picture but also
creating a library for use in the whole show. Then, with my UK
team, we edited music for the remaining 8 episodes, but
I scored important scenes in some of these too. I recorded in
December and January at Abbey Road. My score was Orchestra
based but with Acoustic Guitars, modern percussion and
programming and some Ethnic instruments such as Baglama and
Saz. Orchestra was 36 strings, 6 Brass, Harp, Piano, 4
Woodwind and Percussion.

we have another Guy Farley score coming up for release and we
are now ready to announce the title: The Flock. This is
possibly Guy's darkest orchestral score so far, and it is
fascinating to hear this very talented composer's approach to
thriller scoring. The film stars Richard Gere and Claire Danes
in a story about a missing girl and the intense struggle to
find her alive. To give you an idea of what the score sounds
like: Howard Shore's Seven meets Guy Farley's unique ability
to write thematically driven scores! Essentially, Guy produced
two versions of his score for the film - the second version
features more aggressive brass and percussion as well as
dissonant string writing. Our album features the best of both
versions of the score! This is our third project together with
Guy, and without any doubt not our last! The CD is scheduled
to come out on July 29 - the film came out on DVD in the US on

Clarke co-write all scores, including The Rocket Post which
MovieScore Media released last year). MovieScore Media was

LMO recently recorded Guy
Farley's score for Cashback . This film, from first time
Director Sean Ellis, tells the story of Ben (played by Sean
Biggerstaff) who develops insomnia after a painful
relationship breakup. To kill time he starts working the late
night shift at the local supermarket, where his artistic
imagination runs wild... Guy Farley used a 45 piece LMO
together with extensive solo piano (played by Simon
Chamberlain) and percussion (Tristan Fry and Paul Clarvis)
overdubs. The sessions were recorded at Air Lyndhurst Hall by
