Premiere: James Deen Stars in Bend Sinister's "Quest for Love"

by Jonah Wolf

When Bend Sinister guitarist Joseph Blood got cast as an extra in an adult film, the Vancouver musician slipped a copy of his band's album Small Fame to the film's star, celebrity performer James Deen. Won over by the band's combination of classic metal beats, proggy organ melodies and singer Dan Moxon's live-wire tenor, Deen agreed to drive to the Mojave Desert with the film's director Lee Roy Myers to shoot a video for closing track "Quest for Love." In the video, Deen mugs in a Rob Halford-style leather vest and spiked bracelets as electricity flows through his body.
