A potent soundtrack to Sky's 1970s political drama, featuring the score by highly acclaimed British composer Max Richter and a choice selection of early 70s music, including reggae grooves from the Trojan catalogue and the rarely available psychedelic soul of Noir.
Max Richter says "Guerrilla is a powerful and demanding piece of work, and it doesn't pull its punches. As well as being outstanding drama I believe it is a valuable contribution to our understanding of its time, and by extension, our own."
Set against the backdrop of one of the most explosive times in U.K. history, Guerrilla tells the story of a politically active couple whose relationship and values are tested when they liberate a political prisoner and form a radical underground cell in 1970s London.
Produced by Sky / Fifty Fathoms Productions, this six-part limited series is written and directed by Academy Award®-winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, American Crime), with Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild® Award-winner Idris Elba acting as Executive Producer.
One of the most prolific of contemporary artists, composer Max Richter has scored over 50 films. After graduating from the Royal Academy Of Music his work has encompassed concert music,operas, ballet, film, theatre and TV scores. Previous film and TV include Waltz With Bashir, Sarah's Key, The Lunchbox, Testament Of Youth and The Leftovers.
The release also features a tempting selection of early 70s reggae grooves from the Trojan catalogue alongside the psychedelic soul of Noir and other music of the period.
