As previously reported, US television drama Boss doesn’t only feature Frasier (sorry, Kelsey Grammer) as a corrupt Chicago mayor. It also features the first new music in 14 years from Mark Hollis.
A member of leftfield pop legends – and high charters in FACT’s recent 100 Best Albums of the 1990s countdown – Talk Talk, Hollis has been mostly dormant since 1998’s self-titled solo album.
2010 film The Peacock was supposed to feature music by Hollis, but his compositions ultimately went unused, and now appear on Boss – the music of which comes supervised by Brian Reitzel, a former member of Redd Kross who famously persuaded My Bloody Valentine to contribute to Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation.
