Matthew Sweet with a film music inspired by London's historic East End, prompted by the release of "The Limehouse Golem" which features a new score by Johan Soderqvist. The film, by Juan Carlos Medina, stars Bill Nighy as a Victorian detective, troubled by a case of bizarre and perplexing murder. The plot is inspired by the novel of the same name by Peter Ackroyd.
Matthew focuses on the more colourful aspects of East London - as has appealed to film makers - of Charles Dickens, Opium Dens, Jack the Ripper and the Krays.
