A Clockwork Orange Soundtrack

Rolling Stone (1990-04-01)

Further to last month’s news that U2 guitarist The Edge was composing the music for the stage version of A Clockwork Orange comes a storm involving the author of the story, Anthony Burgess. After the premiere of the play at London’s Barbican Theatre, the 73-year-old Burgess stated, “I do not have a great deal of time for rock groups — they’ve got tremendous technology to help them but they produce a poverty-stricken music. To my mind it’s not like music at all, it’s like neo-wallpaper.” Actor Phil Daniels tried to play down the controversy, dismissing it as a result of “the generation gap” and adding “I think the music was fantastic. I think they [U2] are a brilliant band and they really do it [the play] justice.”
