Liverpool in 1946, post war and swinging…
The Rialto theatre is a hotbed of the Big Band Swing scene, with bands playing most nights to full crowds of youngsters looking to forget the drudgery of everyday life, rations and the ruins of the blitz.
The Downswing Seven are The Rialto’s house band who are in the need of a new singer, much to the annoyance of George Hogg, the drummer. His disability had prevented him from seeing active service during the war, and now it is preventing him from fulfilling his dream of fronting the band as the lead male vocal.
Are somethings worth killing for? George certainly thinks so… In The Mood... For Murder is a period thriller, set against the backdrop of war time Liverpool.
DE McCluskey is a fine writer, he has written comics, horror and crime, always with style and action. A Film is in pre-production. Co-written by Tony Bolland, who really knows the music scene.
