Greenhorn updates

April 3, 2014

Here’s some pretty kick-ass news: Call Me Greenhorn‘s Simian Walk made number one on RMD Music Blog‘s Top 5 indie tracks of the week. “You know that feeling when you hear a song and instantly feel more badass even though you’re not remotely badass in any sense of the word? Well that’s how we felt after listening to this track” is how they summed it up. Check it out here, and if you’ve got Deezer Space Kitty 2000 can be found here.

Speaking of the song: The video featuring John Travolto is getting a fair share of views right now. I just checked on YouTube and it’s passed 4,500. Not too shabby for an amateur effort (I’d never call myself an editor). Still wish the better quality version on Vimeo got more views, but what’re you gonna do? You’ll find it here. Check it out.

Lastly, I’m not too sure exactly what it means – so far I haven’t found any info to make it any clearer – but you’ll find all (?) my albums, EPs and singles at OKMusic in Japan. Check it out here and if you have any information to share, feel free to do so in the comments section. I’d appreciate it.

Space Kitty 2000

March 24, 2014

It’s finally here! The second (but fifth in all) album from my oddity project Call Me Greenhorn. Entitled Space Kitty 2000, the follow-up to the 2013 album The Hit ‘In Sounds’ of Today’s Outside Crowd! offers eleven tracks written and recorded between December 2013 up to March of this year. No real reason for the title, it just struck me as “fun” – which in all honesty is at least 75% of the reason I’m doing this to being with.

Personally I am very satisfied with this collection of tracks. Listening to it now I think it has a nice flow and it seems that I finally arrived at a point creatively where all my influences – sans punk rock and 1980s American hardcore – blended together in a sound that showcase them all quite nicely. It’s all here; Old school soul, funk and R&B; cheesy Moog weirdness; lounge; retro-futur; Beastie Boys-styled breakbeats, 1980s new wave/synths (there’s even some Kraftwerk!) and I even managed to add some King Tubby-esque techniques into it all – including two dubs.

Available via Bandcamp and iTunes as of now, Amazon.com will be added next week with tons more to follow. If you’ve got Spotify or Last.FM you can stream the album here and here, and make sure to check out the Simian Walk video on YouTube (below) and Vimeo here!

Simian Walk

March 14, 2014

Well, I’m pretty stoked to finally announce that the first video for Call Me Greenhorn‘s new album Space Kitty 2000 is finished. It sure took a while – this is actually the third video I edited due to some unforseen circumstances – so I was pretty relieved to have this over with.

Using footage from Neri Parenti‘s 1979 rip-off homage to Saturday Night FeverThe Face with Two Left Feet aka John Travolto …da un insolito destino - it features some pretty bad ass disco dancing courtesy Italian John Travolta look-alike Giuseppe Spezia (rumored to have done plastic surgery to enhance said likeness) and Gloria Piedimonte with Cicciolina herself – Ilona Staller – admiring his moves.

The album will be released soon – I just gotta coordinate it with iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc. – so I’d say in roughly two weeks the eleven tracks will be online. In the mean time, make sure to check out Code Red‘s DVD of the Italian spoof here.

Quijada

March 2, 2014

Well,  I finally got around to get a page on SoundCloud for my Call Me Greenhorn project, adding at least one song each from the over a dozen releases I did last year. As an added bonus I decided to upload the recently finished track Quijada from the coming Space Kitty 2000 album.

Also, make sure to check out Gorilla Film Magazine‘s debut podcast episode of The Bunker featuring Veronica Simmonds, Tim Dalling and BAFTA winning animator Mikey Please, with music by Keir Docherty, Jonathan Day and yours truly.

It’s official: I am teaming up with John Brito Films to create the intro theme for his upcoming horror/sci-fi/fantasy web series. Demos were created and sent and now we’ve agreed on a concept and sound that works for what he envisioned.

Posted earlier on the official Facebook page, John made the following statement:

Heading towards the finishing line with episode 1 (“The Cellar”) of our horror/sci-fi/fantasy webseries! Retro-Dark-Wave-Elektro Genius Magnus Sellergren will compose the sound for our Webseries-Intro. Yeah!

The concept for the series looks awesome, John has assembled a great cast and crew and I am very thrilled to be involved in the process.

Northwest Passage

January 20, 2014

Today marks the 68th birthday of director David Lynch, and what better way to celebrate than to offer up a taste of my coming, yet-to-be-titled EP? Entitled Northwest Passage, the track was heavily inspired by the cult TV series Twin Peaks, so I figured today was pretty fitting to upload it. Using footage from the pilot episode – hence the song title, natch! – with some choice cuts from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me I think it turned out pretty okay. Check it out and spread the word

Speaking of which: You heard the news that has every ‘Peaks fan going gaga right now that Lynch is back in the Pacific Northwest shooting new footage for the series? I’m not too sure if this means that the final, third season will see the light of day or it’s just additional (promo) footage. Still, it’s pretty exciting, no?
