Elusive former Delgado and Lord Cut Glass puppetmaster Alun Woodward emerges from a seven year silence with this spectral soundtrack to the documentary about maverick Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree.

While the cycling connection with Woodward'€™s old band will resonate with some, it'€™s secondary to the dazzling and poignant backdrop he's created for David Street'€™s portrait of a quixotic sporting legend. Largely instrumental, Woodward weaves electronica, loops and guitars to illuminate the warmth, wit and willfulness of a remarkable sportsman. The effectiveness of the soundtrack also serves to remind us of Woodward'€™s intuitive musical talent, and showcases a songwriter still capable of packing a formidable emotional punch.
