Epic Soundtracks was the stage name of British musician Kevin Paul Godfrey (23 March 1959 - 5 November 1997). He was brought up in Solihull, Midlands with his brother Adrian Nicholas, who was known as Nikki Sudden (1956 - 2006).
In 1972 Kevin and Nicholas formed the nucleus of what was to become the post-punk rock group Swell Maps, with "Epic" on drums and piano, and "Nikki" on guitar and vocals.
Epic later played drums for Crime and the City Solution and These Immortal Souls. In 1991, Epic decided to focus on his own songwriting career, and began the series of recordings that comprised his three solo records. As a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist he released three critically acclaimed solo albums and two more have been released posthumously.
Notable fans of Soundtrack's solo work include Evan Dando and Thurston Moore.
Epic Soundtracks died in his sleep November 5, 1997, at his flat in West Hampstead, London. His funeral took place in Leamington Spa Baptist Church on December 1.
Much speculation has been made of the manner of his passing; however, the official cause of death was ruled as inconclusive.
