Film Director Quinton Tarantino has once again put together an eclectic line-up for the soundtrack to his next movie Kill Bill.
The album features Nancy Sinatra with a cover of the Sonny and Cher classic hit 'Bang Bang' through to the soothing sounds of Zamphir with 'The Lonely Shepherd', the disco beats of the 70s with Santa Esmeralda's 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' and through to now with Wu-Tang Clan's RZA performing a number of tracks.
Kill Bill, starrs Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Michael Madsen, Darryl Hannah and David Carradine as "Bill."
Uma Thurman plays a pregnant assassin who is shot by Bill on her wedding day. She lays in a coma for 5 years and when she awakes the chase is on to Kill Bill.
