Brook Pridemore - “Oh, E!” (Official Music Video)
Directed by Cannonball Statman at a house show in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. Summer 2013.
Brook actually played a full set at this house show! It was real. Not a sound stage, or trick photography. Out of System Transfer played too. Cannonball Statman played a set later the same night, with a 5 piece band that was far too loud for a neighbor (or two, or ten). Because of Cannonball-related noise complaints, Kung Fu Crimewave finished the night with a completely unplugged/acoustic set, but as a full band. It might’ve been the best Kung Fu Crimewave set of all time. Members from all those bands also appear as “Brook Pridemore” this video. Woof.

Video Party


Joe Cozza and I became interested in the sex hotel across from where I was living this passed winter in Brooklyn.  We just finished filming the last scene. image



The night started out with a woman cursing us outside the hotel through a barred window.  Something along the lines of “shut the fuck up and get out of here”.  Eventually with the help of some awesome friends I got what I was looking for.  Here are some stillsimage

See Cannonball Statman as “the American flag” in the new Mimi Oz video out this Winter!
