Boomkat Product Review:
Vinyl edition of Clint Mansell’s soundtrack to Ben Wheatley’s black comedy ‘Happy New Year, Mr Burstead
One of, if not the only decent bits of telly from the xmas gone, ‘Happy New Year, Colin Burstead’ features a browbeaten ben Whetaley regular, Neil Maskell, attempting to hold a NYE party for his family in a posh pile. A cutting study in the dynamics of British families and society (that probably applies elsewhere, too), the storyline gets more intense as the characters inevitably get pissed, leading to some kind of Helena Hauff-type german techno DJ character turning it into a rave as the family she was invited to meet breaks down into a feud, with the eponymous Co0lin trying to hold it together.
Clint Mansell’s original soundtrack is a mix of baroque and folksy themes common to Wheatley flicks, favouring lots of bittersweet strings and keys, and even includes an original song sung by the character played by Sam Riley (Ian Curtis’ doppelgänger).
