Ginger

December 19, 2014

So, I was recently – or make that yesterday – contacted by UK-based director Geoffrey Taylor who expressed interest in using my old track Ginger for his upcoming documentary about red-haired people and the Redhead Days festival in Breda, Holland.

Geoff’s previous effort Close looks damn great, and having been the official selection of the Encounters Film Festival and the London Film Festival to name just a few, I am more than happy to see this old song being used in his work. I am very excited by this turn of events and can’t wait to see the finished results!

Originally recorded in a quickie demo session back in 2011 – I did drums, bass, guitars, the whole lot! – the track had a quickie 24-bit yesterday evening and will be available via Spotify, iTunes etc. very soon. In the meantime check it out on SoundCloud:

Splatt Gallery II!

December 13, 2014

EFsplatt

So, the package with my posters has arrived in the US and Mike at The Splatt Gallery started adding some of my work on their official Facebook page. As an added bonus, they’ve recently acquired some Electric Frankenstein posters and whaddaya know, they found one of my works in the package! Pretty damn cool, I think this one was made way back in 2007 or something.

For more cool EF stuff – and more of mine, natch! – make sure to check out Sal Canzonieri‘s book Son of Electric Frankenstein: More High Energy Punk Rock & Roll Poster & Record Art. It’s 164 pages filled with cool artwork and yours for roughly $27. Available via Amazon, Amazon UK, Amazon Germany and, hey, Swedes can get it via AdLibris!

Sleaze Fiend Magazine!

December 5, 2014

SFM

Hey, check it out. The second issue of Sleaze Fiend Magazine is out, just throbbing with all things grindhouse, exploitation and, uh, an interview with me! (I guess that’s the non-throbbing part, although I can be naughty. Once, when I was hitchiking…)

A total of 76 pages filled with interviews, reviews, original art and retro ads. Pre-orders are being shipped out and you can get your copy for a measly $7 (post paid in the US I think) here.

Splatt Gallery!

November 21, 2014

splatt 1

Hey! This is some pretty awesome news, you guys. I am stoked to announce that Splatt Gallery has not only purchased pretty much every old gig poster I’ve produced these past years (and had left), to sell via their website, but they’ve also made the very rare Pete the Pirate Squid poster part of their permanent collection! (if you haven’t seen it you can check it out here.)

Based in Walled Lake, Michigan, the gallery has devoted itself to all kinds of street art, carrying work from such greats such as Banksy, Obey, personal faves like Mark Ryden and lots, lots more. I am very excited to be part of this collection and, if you’re in the area, make sure to visit them at 301 Legato Drive.

Check out their official website here and give them a like on Facebook here.

Pure Melvin

November 12, 2014

What’s up with the bad vibes, man? Well, after having experienced more than my fair share of shit going through a rough patch – don’t ask – I decided to vent with the all-new synth punk/garage wave project Pure Melvin. For those expecting something similar to Videogram or Call Me Greenhorn this couldn’t be further from it as it is aggressive, dark and kinda punk rock in its delivery.

Teaming up with Aussie musician Jamie Coghill, who’s handling the rhythm department, we’re currently in the midst of working out tracks for what’ll either end up as an album or an EP. This is more spontaneous than my previous projects and we’re making an effort not to overproduce or overthink anything. Just blast it out, keep the energy intact and maintain the freshness of each idea.

It’s too early to tell if this is a one-off kinda thing or something I’ll return to, but make sure to check out Officer Friendly rough mix on SoundCloud and give us a “like” on Facebook here. More tunage coming soon!

EDIT: Just finished up another track tonight and decided to post it on SoundCloud, so make sure to give Clone Factory a spin as well!

2077: Raiders of the Apocalypse

November 4, 2014

So, yesterday saw the premiere of Videogram‘s video for 2077: Raiders of the Apocalypse on YouTube, released to coincide with the limited edition 7″ lathe cut version available via Facebook only.

The video – that’ll also see a physical release later on this year – was created using footage from the 1975 post-apocalyptic oddity A Boy and His Dog starring Don Johnson and one of my first efforts working with Adobe Premiere.

The 7″ is pretty much a vinyl collector’s wet dream and I really went out of my way to make it, well, kinda insane, ha ha ha. These babies are custom made by hand on square see-through plastic and comes with a 7″x7″ sticker instead of a sleeve. These are extremely limited and you can get yours here. Give it a spin on SoundCloud.

Ungawa!

October 22, 2014

Well, since Hammond has given me his permission to share it, I figure I’d post it here as well. Teaming up with Aussie musician The Jimmy C here’s the new theme for his Beyond The Playlist interview show: Ungawa!

Don’t ask me where the heck I got that title from, but I figure it kinda fit. The track turned out great, Hammond’s satisfied and the track will premiere in December, so make sure to stream it online here. While on the subject, my interview:

stovebolts

Since they just made it official I figured I could share the album sleeve for The Stovebolts‘ upcoming album Over the Limit. The artwork was created by Loud Comix‘ creator Jamie Vayda, and I was asked to do the coloring. It turned out pretty cool I think!

Out soon, so make sure to check ‘em out on Facebook here and visit Blahll!! Records here.
