The Hot Press Newsdesk, 16 Mar 2012

Gavin Friday has composed the music for a new documentary about Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn who’s renowned for his classic black and white portraits of U2.

Directed by Klaartje Quirijins – try saying that after a feed of Grolsch! – Anton Corbijn Inside Out features contributions from Bono and the chaps, Lou Reed, George Clooney, Metallica and Depeche Mode.

“Corbijn’s work first hit me in the head via the infamous Joy Division NME cover in the late ’70′s,” says Gavin who collaborated on the soundtrack with Joylon Vaughan Thomas and Herbie Macken. “His photographs and masterful expressionistic videos were for me as poignant and as important as the music and the bands and artists he worked with.

“I first met Anton in the early 1980s and immediately bonded with the ‘Long Man From The Lowlands’. He became a very good friend. Earlier this year we composed the score … Inside Out.

“It’s a beautiful and honest film showing Anton as he is rarely seen – at work, alone and with his family, a very quietly poignant and moving portrait. Hopefully we captured some of the essence of this great man in our music.”

Another Gavin track, ‘Lord I’m Coming’, features on the soundtrack to the new Sean Penn film, This Must Be The Place, which is reviewed in the next issue of Hot Press, out on Thursday March 22.
