Curse of the Chippendales

The muscular men of the Chippendales captured the hearts, minds, and dollars of the 1980s in their iconic cuffs and collars. As women’s liberation collided with new ideas of modern masculinity, this unique moment in history catapulted the Los Angeles dance troupe to untold riches and global fame. But as the crowds out front sky-rocketed from hundreds to thousands, the men behind the phenomenon plunged into greed, paranoia, and ultimately murder. Discover the audacious true crime plot behind the scenes, as the beefcakes and businessmen who made male strippers a household name fell foul of the Curse of the Chippendales.

I had a lot of fun working with original equipment from the 70s, 80s and 90s for the series, as well as putting together a 15-piece band to perform the score. We recorded at Press Play Studio in South East London, with Andy Ramsey engineering. I’ll share more about the process following the release of the series. A small taster of the music can be heard in the Amazon Prime trailer:
