— Spice XXX launches its new Downtown label this month with the release of Rocksuckers
, a high-end, punk-fused feature starring Roxy DeVille, Micah Moore and punk rock outfit The Dwarves.
"The Downtown line is obviously not Porn Valley porn," said Bob Johnson, executive producer for Spice Studios. "It's gritty and edgy — very noir, but with high-end production values."
While the Dwarves do not fuck in Rocksuckers
, their music and lyrics have been meticulously synced with the onscreen action, and live musical performances by the band are spliced between its scenes.
"We determined we'd like to use a band that's known and whose lyrics apply to the movie — the Dwarves' music lends itself perfectly," said Johnson. "Rocksuckers
is most people's fantasies of a perfect rock concert night. You go to the show, you enjoy the music, and there's lots of sex."
Johnson's Downtown will house work from an inspired roster of rogue directors, including Joanna Angel, JacktheZipper, Joe Gallant and Rocksuckers
auteur the Gingerman.
"We identified a niche — a gap in the marketplace between Alt and high-end features," explained Johnson. "We're not Alt. We can do movies that have more of an edge and better production value and better looking girls. We're presenting visually compelling films to the masses without sacrificing project quality."
Downtown's future releases include JacktheZipper's Fuck the World
, the comedy Joanna Angel's Totally Screwed Out of Her Shower
and Gallant's Hell's Kittens
was shot on location in New York and features porn people kayaking down the Hudson river," revealed Johnson. "Downtown is the beginning of a whole new push for Spice XXX." Rocksuckers
is available on April 15. Along with DeVille and Moore, the title stars Adrianna Nicole, Natilee Mynx, and Justine Joli.
