My Name is Lenny
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Ian Arber
Label: MovieScore Media
Release Date: 15 September 2017

MovieScore Media release Ian Arber's score for My Name is Lenny. The movie is an account of the life of Britain's most notorious bare-knuckle fighter Lenny McLean, also known as "The Guv'nor." McLean was an institution of the British fighting scene with a self-proclaimed number of 4000 fights - he also had strong ties to the London underworld, a fact he relished when playing the role of 'Barry The Baptist' in Guy Ritchie's gangster comedy Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels...

My Name is Lenny is a surprisingly satisfying score, especially given the movie's premise. However, it's a bit of an acquired taste.

Ian Arber turns in 12 tracks (43 min, 37 sec) of interesting, atmospheric music. If I had one complaint, it's that it tends to focus too much on one main theme, which is woven, rather prominently, throughout the tracks.

'Come Back to Me' seems to pay homage to The Trogg's 1966 single 'Wild Thing'. Not having seen the film, I'm assuming this segment is used during McLean's fight with Lew "Wild Thing" Yates.

The main theme is interesting and there's enough quality material here to make it worthy of your time. It's not just an album that will appeal to fans of the movie. But it's equally not a score that you'll probably dig out to play too often.
