Get Carter

It doesn't need anything, but it has a pulse. There's a silent throb through this film thats's started by Roy Budd's Main Theme and then doesn't need to be maintained. A neat trick, which allows wind and rain and general Northern shit to burst through without being over-encumbered with orchestration. The pulse is a heartbeat, slower than you'd expect, because it's a professional.

Original vs. Stereolab stand-off:

Roy Budd - Main Theme (Carter Takes A Train)

Stereolab - Get Carter
