Shelf Life soundtrack Climate Camp film

Shelf Life and New Model Army in environmental film soundtrack

'Roll Up, Roll Up' has been chosen alongside a track from New Model Army to appear in the soundtrack of a new film. Opening with the first track from Shelf Life's debut album 'Best Before End', the film is about the 2008 environmental protests against a proposed new coal-fired power station at Kingsnorth, Kent (UK).

'Covering Climate Camp' by Jason Parkinson documents the police response to journalists trying to cover the story for independent and mainstream news organisations. Reporters were faced with determined and consistent obstruction by the police, whose actions were roundly condemned by the National Union of Journalists and in industry media on the grounds of press freedom restriction.

Part One of the film can be seen above, Part Two can be viewed here.

The band has other material in their catalogue suitable for soundtracks for films about peace, environmental or activism issues. To contact Shelf Life about licensing tracks for soundtrack use, email shelflifemusic[at]gmail[dot]com.
