Clangers - Original Television Soundtrack
Released: 14th December 2018
In 2001 Jonny Trunk started working with Oliver Postgate and his Smallfilms archive.
The first music issued was the unreleased music from all 26 episodes of The
Clangers. To create the soundtrack all music was originally “drawn” by Oliver
Postgate – sketched out in graph form on the original scripts. This was then
translated by his good friend and regular musical collaborator Vernon Elliott into the
music we know and love. It was all recorded in a village hall in Kent in the late 1960s
and released originally in 2001 by Jonny Trunk (cat number SOUP 001), garnering a
mass of fine reviews inclsuing a full 5 stars from The NME!. Listening today these
recordings have lost none of their naivety and charm, and the Clangers soundtrack
remains a seminal work of both TV and intergalactic musical history.
