Ahead of today's nationwide release of The Bunny & The Bull we caught up with Oly Ralfe to talk about the soundtrack that Ralfe Band recorded.
Q. So how did your involvement with Bunny & The Bull Come about?
Oly Ralfe: We were invited to record a demo for a couple of scenes. We just went for it hard over a couple of days, and they liked it more than anyone elses demo. I've always thought it'd be great to create film music but didn't expect to land a sizeable catch like this. It was quite a fish to fry.
We brought you details last week about Ralfe Band's soundtrack work for the forthcoming The Bunny & The Bull feature. We can also bring you news of Oli Ralfe's next directorial work, The Journey of The Childmen.
Released late next month, The Bunny & The Bull is a feature length surreal comedy road-trip from Warp X Films and the makers of the The Mighty Boosh.
Spanish passions fed into the eclectic score by Ralfe Band, whose front man Oly Ralfe contributed occasional songs and cameos to ‘The Mighty Boosh’s’ radio and TV shows. (His music is described by Julian Barratt as ‘psychopathic folk-waltz music… epic and peculiar and catchy as hell’.)
This weekend sees the launch of another artistic avenue for the good good folks at TRUCK.
"OX4 is a celebration of the artistic talents emerging in and around the postcode of OX4. We've always dreamt about bringing that SXSW vibe to our hometown - and now we have!"
It's all taking place on 10th October, 2009 - across 10 venues all situated on The Cowley Road.
Danny & The Champions of the World and Ralfe Band both play the Baby Simple venue this Saturday (10/10)
OX4 takes place along the entire length of 'The Cowley Road' in Oxford.

Despite their association with kerazee cross-over comedy superstars the Mighty Boosh, Attic Thieves is perhaps unlikely to propel the Ralfe Band into the nation's living rooms like their appearances in the hit comedy.
