"Hi…this is Phil Brigham, and along with Phil Steele (aka Phil Ttrainer) and Alan Reeves, wrote “The Chase” for a film called “The Road To Salina” (1970), one of the last films that Rita Hayworth was in before she passed away. It was a drama in English, but directed by French director Georges Lautner.
The band we had then was called “Clinic”, but in the last few years another act has used that name more famously.
Besides me on guitar, Alan on keyboards, and Phil Steele on bass, we had Gerry Murphy on drums, and Chris Hayward on flute.
The band existed from 1970-72.
The music publisher in France must have heard that QT was looking for tunes for Kill Bill, and submitted “The Chase”.
When it didn’t get in KB1, we were diappointed, thinking maybe that’s it, but by reading your website, I found out we made it on to KB2.
Naturally I am thrilled to have something I co-wrote in a film by a genius like QT, as well as a film that will surely do well at the box office.
Wow. And to think he didn’t even know the song made the Vol.2 OST… until he came to good ol’ tarantino.info Ã‚Â
Personally, i think The Chase is one of the best tracks on the soundtrack. Second probably to Ennio Morricone’s efforts only… I can’t wait to see (or hear, rather) how all the tracks are utillised in Vol.2!
