In 2011, Stephen Coates of the band The Real Tuesday Weld found himself sheltering from the cold in a cafe in Moscow with a friend. Fascinated by the music that was playing, he asked the waitress and was told 'it was something from the old times'. It turned out to be the soundtrack for the â60ss cult Soviet film Goodbye Boys composed by Mikael Tariverdiev. Compiled by his wife Vera Tariverdieva together with Stephen (in association with his publishing company Antique Beat), Film Music includes a selection of the composer's greatest tracks, including many previously unreleased versions. All were made with new transfers from original tapes and his own reel-to-reel machine. They are thematically programmed around Vera's intimate knowledge of her husband's music. It is with her blessing and dedication to see his legacy live on that we are able to bring his music to new audiences. Film Music unveils the extraordinary life of an unusual composer who was acutely aware of the political environment although it was not central to his work.
