Everyone knows I'm not a liar

Piece based on "Murder on Lennox Ave." poster by Richard Watts. 

"I always enjoy doing something dark. I managed to find a copy of the film on the Internet Archive so sampled some of the dialogue and the title music. There’s an odd feel about the film so I wanted to capture that in the re-imaged piece. I’ve used a repeating bass line that drives the piece on and then added a lot of horn melodies as the original film music used horns."
