Commercial/Editorial: Sitting Target

'Sitting Target' by Stanley Myers

While round at Punt's place the other night, we had a bit of an old tunes sesh. One of the classic platters he wheeled out was this baby, from 1972. Well worth a listen indeed, but those of a writing bent should be sold by this legend, on the back cover:

“You are looking at an animal! – A woman is his target… No cage can hold his lust for revenge.”

Following the huge success of his ultra hip soundtrack albums ‘Kaleidoscope’, ‘No Way To Treat A Lady’ and ‘Otley’, legendary composer Stanley Myers provides brooding psychedelic soundscapes for the first ever ‘R-rated’ British movie. Featuring Jill St John, Ian McShane (‘If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium’) and Edward Woodward (‘The Wickerman’) alongside an animalistic Oliver Reed on a Pentonville escape mission fuelled by a bleeding heart, a gallon red mist and a diabolical lust for revenge.

They don't write them like that any more, do they? Find out more about the film here, and you can get it from Boomkat here.
