about

Trial By Bullet is the OST to the short lived Italian TV crime thriller of the same name. Conceived as a spin off from the unmade ‘Shadow of the Bloodstained Kiss’ film, it in fact used many of the same sets and costumes in a desperate attempt from the producers to claw back some of the money spent when “Shadow’s” production was cancelled. The show itself was about a homicide detective working as part of the galactic police at an unnamed point in the not too distant future. In a radical departure to the times the officer in question was chasing a serial killer who preyed on the swinger, strip and gay clubs of a far off planet mysteriously aping the Jeffery Dahmer crimes at the same time. (The producers were notoriously cagey about answering questions about the similarities.) Even stranger, however, was the role of the detective in question played by Euro-crime legend Maurizio Merli who sadly passed away soon after the first broadcast. Pulled half way through the first episode, due to a controversial scene involving a bisexual orgy breaking out in a government building, Pope John Paul II ordered the remaining footage to be destroyed, a demand that was quickly voiced again by Italy’s prime minister of the time, Bettino Craxi. In the early 90’s the 10 minutes of the original broadcast were swapped between video traders, but due to the nature of the copying process, quality was always varied. All that remains is composer Antoni Maiovvi’s score, remixed and remastered from the original sequencer files.
