The entire soundtrack for The UK Gold, a documentary about tax evasion in the UK is now available stream via UK Uncut and Soundcloud. The soundtrack is the work of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja with additional contributions from Jonny Greenwood and Guy Garvey.
Now is the time to reveal the revolving doors between government and the City that has bred lies and corruption for so long, siphoning money through our tax havens for the global super rich, while now preaching that we the people must pay our taxes and suffer austerity. Just who does our government work for? – Thom Yorke
The documentary is said to tackle tax dodging corporations and government complicity so directly that both BBC and Channel 4 refused to run it. It is, they claimed, ‘too controversial’.
The UK Gold airs tonight at 8pm on London Live / Freeview 8 / Sky 117 / Virgin 159 / YouView 8. It’s also available nationwide via HD live-stream at London Live. Listen to the soundtrack below and watch the trailer above.
