2015 repress. The film Death Line, an eerie horror story set in the London Underground, directed by Gary Sherman and starring Donald Pleasence and Christopher Lee, was released in 1972 in the UK (and as Raw Meat in the US). In 2001, Spinney Records released Wil Malone's original soundtrack, an amalgamation of groovy rhythm and blues with fantastic squelching synths intended to be truly horrible. Wil Malone has been composing and arranging music since the 1960s. Initially, he was a member of the UK psych combo Orange Bicycle, which had a number of singles on Columbia and Parlophone between 1967 and 1971 and an eponymous album in 1970. Since that time he has been responsible for some of the most sublime string and brass arrangements to come out of the UK. The strings on Massive Attack's "Unfinished Sympathy" were his work (of which he is particularly proud) as was The Verve's "Bitter Sweet Symphony" (with a little help from Andrew Oldham!). He has also worked with artists as diverse as Depeche Mode, U.N.K.L.E., Black Sabbath, Paul Weller, Kylie Minogue, and London Grammar.
