After six seasons and sixty-eight episodes, cult television series “The Sopranos” has come to an end. It's hard to imagine a television series we can identify with more, because, more than the story of a mobster family from New Jersey and their relashionship with American society, The Sopranos is the mirror of a diverse range of relationships between people, their ambivalence and conflicts.
And, to match the series, its soundtrack has always been up to this diversity.
From Vivaldi to Sonic Youth, to Bob Dylan, Little Feat, Vanilla Fudge, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd, Frank Sinatra and many others, musical eclectism has always been a priority, brilliantly topped off with a song chosen by David Chase for the car chase in the last episode: “Scratch Your Name”.
Shingai Shoniwa (Vocals, Bass); Dan Smith (Backing vocals, Lead Guitar) and Jamie Morrison (Drums), formed, in 2003, “The Noisettes”, an indie band on the rise in the post-punk British panorama, that had already showed their creativity and interpretive force with their EP “Three Moods of the Noisettes”, in 2005, before they reached this pearl they wrote for their excellent album “What’s the Time Mr. Wolf?”.
Cult tv series, cult music - the perfect match.
