Out of print since 2001, a classic Trunk records release gets a rare repress. Naïve and pastoral space music at its very best!
In 2001 Jonny Trunk started working with Oliver Postgate and his Smallfilms archive. The first music issued was the unreleased music from all 26 episodes of 'The Clangers'. To create the soundtrack all music was originally 'drawn' by Oliver Postgate - sketched out in graph form on the original scripts. This was then translated by his good friend and regular musical collaborator Vernon Elliott into the music we know and love.
It was all recorded in a village hall in Kent in the late 1960s and released originally in 2001 by Jonny Trunk (cat number SOUP 001), garnering a mass of fine reviews including a full 5 star review from The NME!
Listening today these recordings have lost none of their naivety and charm, and the Clangers soundtrack remains a seminal work of both TV and intergalactic musical history.
