Colin Greenwood, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah members perform on Woodpecker

    With Radiohead bandmate/brother Johnny Greenwood composing the score for There Will Be Blood, and with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis scoring The Assasination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood was not to be outdone by entering the movie scoring world. Pitchfork reports that Greenwood performed on the soundtrack to the upcoming film Woodpecker, by director Alex Karpovsky. Brothers Lee and Tyler Sargent, from the 2005 indie darlings Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, also performed on the score, which was composed by James Lavino.


    The film regards two brothers in search of a rare woodpecker, known as the Lord Dog Bird, which was also the inspiration for a band name as well as a song by Sufjan Stevens. In other words, this is a film with strong indie rock roots. In the review in Variety, the music was called "loud" and "suitably parodic." We’ll see what happens once the film gets a wider release.
