Fire In Babylon film score

Adrian is currently working with Bobby Marshall doing music supervision for a new feature documentary, telling the story of the West Indies cricket team of the 1970s/80s. In one of the greatest chapters of sporting history, captain Clive Lloyd managed to transform a failing side, winning the inaugural World Cup in England in 1975.

Fire In Babylon explores the team’s achievement against the social, political and cultural backdrop of the period. It goes into moving detail of how it became a force for regional pride and a metaphor for post colonial revolt.

Expect to hear some rarities from the On-U Sound back catalogue as well as some peripheral artists from the period. The film was recently shown at the London Film Festival, and a nationwide release is expected in early 2011.
