Fight Club [Original Soundtrack]by The Dust Brothers
As producers and remix artists, the Dust Brothers -- Silverlake, California boys Mike Simpson and John King -- specialize in sonic collages sampled from scores of obscure records, enhanced by electronics and driven by bass-heavy, hip-hop beats. Their approach has had spectacular results, including Beck's ODELAY and the Beastie Boys' PAUL'S BOUTIQUE, not to mention Hanson's debut and the Rolling Stones' BRIDGES TO BABYLON. For the all-instrumental score to FIGHT CLUB, which stars Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, the Brothers took a different tack: composing all original music. The 15 tracks comprising the FIGHT CLUB soundtrack are unmistakably the work of the Dust Brothers, as they're filled with seductive dance rhythms, jittery synths, and an ominous overall vibe. Suggestive titles like "Who Is Tyler Durden?" (he's Pitt's character), "Psycho Boy Jack," "Chemical Burn," and "Commissioner Castration" offer tantalizing clues to the movie's events. Director David Fincher hired the Dust Brothers out of a desire to eschew the typical orchestral film score, and they've delivered just what he ordered.
