The Living and the Dead..

Our very own Mark Legassick (Howlin' Lord, Slap Ya Mama Big Band) can be heard on the soundtrack to the BBC's supernatural historical drama 'The Living and the Dead'.

Soundtrack producers THE INSECTS invited Mark to provide vocals on a reworked version of the traditional English folk tune 'A Lyke Wake Dirge' for the opening credit sequence of the series. The Guardian's Lucy Mangan has suggested it as a replacement national anthem and in response to public demand there will be full release of the soundtrack in the near future.

'The Living and the Dead' airs on Tuesdays at 9pm and is also on the BBC iPlayer
