Our first full-production video from Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez's latest, The Deep End, was a joy from start to finish. When we shot the main footage in late July with Bill Hurley of ADC Film Production in front of a blue screen at Connecticut's Horizon Music Group, we'd already hatched a scheme to raid Bill's extensive collection of vintage horror movie footage to enhance the theme of the vid's title, "Love Make You Do Stupid Things." A second shoot at the legendary Lakeside Lounge in New York City with the track's special guest, the guitar-totin' Eric "Roscoe" Ambel of the Del Lords, yielded some fun stuff as Roscoe and I romped in the Lakeside's equally legendary photo booth and swapped stories at the bar. The triple-tremelo-guitar attack of Rebel Montez's Cliff Goodwin, Deep End producer Andy York (who's on tour now with John Mellencamp), and the aforementioned Mr. Ambel is potent stuff, with bassist Mike Colbath and drummer Larry Donahue laying down their usual murderous groove. It was big fun, and we hope you dig the result. Check it out at www.youtube.com/christine ohlman , and let us know what you think! Rock on, everybody!
