BTDT underwater...

By Jeff Toorish

Here’s a pretty unusual Beat the Devil’s Tattoo tag –the photo was shot at about 150 feet under water in Casco Bay, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Cape Elizabeth Maine.

I found your song on the website Free Music Archives. Thank you for making it available for non-commercial use. It is a fantastic song. I grew up in the recording business, my father is a musician and song-writer and has several gold albums from the 1950s.

The photo was taken by gently tracing the accumulated silt from the side of a sunken ship, the Jessica Ann.
It was shot while a team of underwater explorers were attempting to salvage a porthole from the ship. The porthole was attached to the ship so securely, that it seemed as if the Devil himself had tattooed it onto the ship.
I’ve made a music video using your song –you can see it here: http://vimeo.com/13596712.

Here is a short video about the the Jessica Ann, if you are interested: http://vimeo.com/12720540.

Hopefully Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will tour in New England some day –I know a lot of people who would come to hear the group.
