Beck Writing Songs For Scott Pilgrim Movie

Our friends at The Playlist have been doing some excellent detective work on the soundtrack for next year's Michael Cera–starring Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic book series which features several made-up bands. Using all available info, they've previously deduced that real-life Canadian groups Metric and Broken Social Scene would fill the roles of SP's fictional Clash at Demonhead and Crash & the Boys (respectively). Today, reading into a new, name-droppy interview with Nigel Godrich, the movie's musical director, they speculate that Beck will contribute the music for Sex Bob-omb, the alt-country-tinged garage band in which Scott Pilgrim (Cera) plays bass. And they're right! We heard the exact same thing from a pretty reliable source. Commence excitement!
