Hungry Like De Wolfe

146. De Wolfe Music

Production music (also known as stock music or library music) is the name given to recorded music that can be licensed to customers for use in film, television, radio and other media. Oftentimes, the music is produced and owned by production music libraries. You probably hear it most days and not even know you’re listening to it on ads and TV Shows. The usual suspects are ones whose advertising budget can’t afford to stretch to licence the latest ‘Rudimental’ tear-em -up track and instead opt for some non-descript drum-n-basscore effort. Typically this will be “library music”. Mugspotters faves ‘Wheeler Dealers‘ is a show which features a glut of multi-genre library music, ranging from classic rock, Jazz, 60’s spy themes (for the Classics) through to loungecore, ambient & psy-trance. In summary a great soundtrack mix to which Ed China can wield his wratchet spanner to.
And so we shift effortlessly to this Charity Shop rescue Deco for ‘De Wolfe’, Library Music specialists extraordinaire. Spotters are familiar with DW in the shape of their superb cult retail compilation “Kung Fu Supersounds” bringing together soundtracks from the Shaw Brothers legendary martial arts flicks. (May we recommend the wonderful Track 2: Theme to “Horror House”) However DW have much more in their arsenal than Chop-socky movies. The mug, if you can see, lists literally hundreds of musical genres to which they have access in their cavernous libraries. Some, never encountered before such as Dub, Baroque & beardy-beardy plink-plink Ukulele.
As a delightful added bonus, the VERY pert nethers of the mug are emblazoned with the DW logo, which will be visible to a viewer as you raise it to down the last dregs of your cuppa.
This truly is a mug that hits all the right notes.

This Cool & deadly lustrous black Cambridge is licensed to thrill courtesy of Enterprise. They are veterans of Mugspotters who’ve graced our blog before with their cheap & cheerful Bell, but now they’re back & this time it’s serious.
As far as Bond analogies go, if the Bell was Timothy Dalton, this Cambridge is Daniel Craig.

I literally couldn’t sum it up better! Marques featured include everyday cloggers such as Audi, BMW, Jaguar & Porsche through to high-end Maserati’s & Ferrari’s.
I’m not much of a petrol head, other than I’ll admit to liking Top Gear and Wheeler Dealers,** but I do like mugs and this is one 4.2 litre supercharged, V8 charged beauty.
It’s for those who know, y’ know.
