InfoLP15th September 2017

Edgar Wright's sophomore film turns ten years old this year, so a perfect time to revisit David Arnold's score to Hot Fuzz.

Never before released in its entirety, David Arnold’s score for HOT FUZZ plays it straight. The world of Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) and Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) is filled with stylised shoot-outs, colourful characters, and rapid-fire comedic beats; the music of HOT FUZZ takes the sincere approach. It brings the heroes (and their many, many villains) into the action films that eventually crash headfirst into the peaceful idyllic village of Sandford.

The title track, ‘Theme from Hot Fuzz,’ feels like a retro futurist version of a ’60s cop show - all urgent beats and huge orchestral flourishes that make you feel like you are in the action. The Hot Fuzz Suite (Hotter and Fuzzier) is twenty-three minutes of utterly spellbinding music which travels the path from beautiful Spanish guitar flourishes to Arnold’s signature orchestral techno stylings. David Arnold went back to the master tapes for us on this and pieced the entire soundtrack together; both David and Edgar were involved in the approvals.
