Percussive Beats

Our KPM album of found sound beats can be found here. Also have a quick look at our 'how to' video. Definitely try this at home - where else??

an accidental studio

We have just finished scoring An Accidental Studio - the fascinating story of George Harrison's iconic production company 'Handmade Films'. With a penchant for bankrolling unconventional masterpieces such as Life Of Brian, Time Bandits and Withnail and I, they secured their place in the unorthodox and brilliant legacy of cult and mainstream British Cinema.

KPM album done!

After months of auditioning cardboard boxes, bottles, tin cans and bubble wrap we are relieved to have finally finished our 'found sound' beats album for KPM. It is due out in July 2019 but here's a sneak preview:

danny & mick

After a whirlwind few months of frantic slapstick composing we are thrilled to see the antics and Danny & Mick on the small screen! Tune in to CBBC on Monday 11th Feb at 16:10! Thanks to our wonderful co-composers David Schweitzer and Douglas Black Heaton and the team at Tiger Aspect. David - thanks for dragging us along for the ride!!!

Adrien Sauvage: Dress Easy on

'a liar's autobiography' receives glowing review in screen daily

A swirling surreal animated romp through the life – real and imaginary – of Monty Python member Graham Chapman, this blissfully odd merging of a splendid variety of animation styles is a unique tribute to the man himself…and probably just how he would like to have been remembered – beguiling, complex, irreverent, charming and rather funny. Full review here.

8.5 star review in dj mag for Rochford-Taylor collaboration

Hands down the best set of releases of 2012, the relentless quality onslaught continues as the ever-versatile Sebastian Rochford teams up with ex-Menlo Park band member Chris Taylor. Perhaps best described by Taylor as “Dirty, messy, unkempt, mean-spirited but loveable, badass, genre non-specific pomp and splendour... or an evil sexy little bastard”, it really is something special. Needless to say, whatever it is, we like it, a lot.

Seb Rochford and Chris Taylor collaboration

Sebastian Rochford reunites with ex-Menlo Park bandmate Chris Taylor for August’s edition of the Days And Nights At The Takeaway singles club. The group, who released just one album at the turn of the millennium, were described at the time “quite brilliant” (Time Out) and “very, very odd” (The Guardian). Now running a music production company named after their shared band, Taylor contributes vocals and piano to the degenerate ‘Seven Sisters’.

This month’s remix conveniently comes from another former Menlo Park member (and Taylor’s current business partner) John Greswell, ramping up the strangeness another notch or two.
