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!

Top of the World, Ma!

November 6, 2013
Yay!

Yay!

Well, this is pretty darn cool news: I just checked and was pleasantly surprised to see that Call Me Greenhorn‘s L’Isola dei Morti Viventi OST has reached number one among the horror soundtrack albums on Bandcamp! And that’s not all! A quick search also showed that the album is also number one in the Lucio Fulci as well as the Fabio Frizzi categories. Yay!

Got some more cool things coming soon-ish that I don’t wanna share just yet, but there are some features and interviews regarding this album soon to be made official. In the mean time I hope you’ll give it a spin below (and spread the word!), and read up on the recent interview I did with Doc Terror.

Friday Night Roundup

September 20, 2013

Well, here we go with the end of another week and again another roundup. First off I wanna plug my recent Society 6 addition: Man is The Warmest Place to Hide. It took me a week to finish and I really busted ass on this one as I am a fan of John Carpenter‘s The Thing and wanted it to turn out just right. I am psyched by the results so make sure to check it out!

More great work found on S6 is Casey Weldon (that kinda reminds me of Mark Ryden‘s work), Guiseppe Cristiano, GBret, MZart-Mel Bohrer, Andrew Henry, and Hillary White, who truly’s got something unique going! The classics meets pop culture like you never seen before. Check ‘em all out!

Music wise Death Waltz Recording Company made a couple of tracks from the coming release of the soundtrack from Lucio Fulci‘s New York Ripper available on their SoundCloud. The album will go on sale next Friday, so check it out here, and while on the subject the label will also release a four-track EP with Goblin to coincide with their first US tour.

More found sounds on SoundCloud is Panhandle‘s Click Clap. Released by Finders Keepers Records this track is just amazing! There’s something hypnotic about the damn thing and I can’t stop listening to it. And with 14,000+ plays I guess I’m not the only one. Just brilliant!

Aussie musician The Jimmy C also released a couple of new tracks on SoundCloud: Two Ween covers slated for an upcoming tribute album, Even If You Don’t and Don’t Get 2 Close (2 My Fantasy). My fave is the first one, but give ‘em both a spin!

In other news Call Me Greenhorn‘s fake-OST L’Isola dei Morti Viventi is still moving steadily upwards. Kinda weird considering it was a 100% fan boy project, but I am not complaining. Just goes to show that you really should vent that inner nerd. Give it a spin below and get it via Bandcamp here.

Other than that I found the time to catch the amazing photos collected by Superchief in their 80 Photos of Old New York (1970 – 1989) post, and apparently yesterday (September 19th according to the official website) was Talk Like a Pirate Day. I totally missed out on that one. Did you celebrate?

Operation: Next Episode

June 27, 2013

Check out the latest episode from The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West, this time brilliantly titled Operation: Next Episode. Starting off with a hilarious opening sequence – if you know German that is – it’s nicely paced with some tight editing and great usage of the musical cues.

The episode’s got a great flow and I’m noticing that the whole concept of the show is gelling. Director Robert Griffith (and Co.!) are onto something and if nothing else it’s getting noticeable in the increasing amount of guest stars they’re getting – this time including Doug Drexler that you might recognize from the Star Trek Continues and Battlestar Galactica TV series. Musically it features Call Me Greenhorn‘s Squawky! and the brand new Superseven Fight Theme 2 and also debuts The Jimmy C‘s cover (!!!) of my Superseven Chase Theme (off the They Call Me Superseven OST).

That last one was a pleasant surprise that Jamie sent to me via email and it was pretty damn cool hearing someone else’s version of the song. In fact, I liked it so much I popped it in and added some ‘Ghoul Moog’ noodlings to it – something he in turned liked enough to keep in the final version. Awesome, Jamie!

Anyway; check it out, give the tracks a spin on my Bandcamp here and here, visit the S7 crew on their official page on Facebook and check out Jamie’s solo efforts here. And spread the word!

Big Bear

Wow, I’m actually embarrassed to admit it, but this was apparently two years in the making: The debut recording from the stoner/sludge project Ursa Major entitled The Thief The Whore The Fool. I checked this blog and this concept was brainstormed during the summer of 2011 and even though I never gave up on the idea of creating something just unbelievably heavy and dissonant this just kept getting pushed further and further back. What the hell happened? Well, “life” I guess. Probably the lamest excuse ever, but it’s pretty close to the truth.

Anyway, this won’t be properly mixed or mastered until the end of the summer unfortunately – yeah, looks like my 2013 schedule is busted – so I thought “what the hey”, posted this edited and unmastered rough-mix version of the track (the finished version is roughly nine and a half minutes) and hope it’ll generate enough interest for the finished version. There’s more to come, but like I already stated in that post two years ago I’m not too sure this’ll grow into a “proper” touring and recording band. I’m content just coming up with this crazy shit, uh, the creative process.

You’ll find the track on Ursa’s Bandcamp here, but give it a spin below and spread the word!

Recap

Whoa Nellie! Well, I’ve been made aware that I have a tendency to blitz through things and just don’t leave enough time – or room – to fully promote the stuff I do. I gotta admit that is a character trait of mine. I’m so engulfed in the creation part of the process that once I’m finished with it I kinda just leave it and move on to the next thing. So with that in mind, here’s a sampler of what I’ve done lately and your chance to catch up with it all:

The Jimmy C – The Man Who Never Dies (REMIX EP 2013)

Featuring my three remixes of the title track. Check it out here.


Call Me Greenhorn – The Harvester

A brand-new, bit darker track that won’t appear on the coming S/T album due to be released in June. Check it out on my SoundCloud as well.

Call Me Greenhorn – Here Comes Gorbot (video)

New video for the CMGH2 aka The Abandoned Project album directed by Robert Griffith from The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West, starring Olivia Dunkley and Jerry Kokich – the latter as Gorbot. Good fun! Check it out on my YouTube as well.

Call Me Greenhorn – The Titan Was Deemed Unsinkable

The first “darker” track that actually will be included on CMGH‘s debut. I love 70′s Jamaican dub and I’m satisfied with the results. Check that one out on my SoundCloud while you’re at it.

Call Me Greenhorn – Armageddon Dub (video)

And finally we have the kick-ass video for Armageddon Dub directed by brilliant UK photographer Robert Boud. His haunting imagery was a perfect fit for this track and I’m so stoked he agreed to do this. Check out the single on my Bandcamp here and the video on YouTube here, and make sure to visit his official page for a taste of his other works!

So there we go! Make sure you spread this around and stay tuned for more updates!

Call Me Greenhorn – Armageddon Dub (video)

May 7, 2013

I looked and there before me was a pale horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him…

Yes, here we go: Proudly announcing that the video for Call Me Greenhorn‘s Armageddon Dub is now up and running! Directed by Robert Boud it’s based on his great photo project Aftermath Apocalypse and fits the bleak industrial sounds of the song just perfectly. I already written about how the song was conceived, but my stats show you guys sure don’t like to click stuff, so it all began with me trying out both some new parallel processing techniques as well as getting to know the utterly insane Russian VST Molot one weekend, getting an initial basic track finished late on Friday evening and going to bed ending up having the worst nightmare in years.

With a heavy Walking Dead feel, the nightmare kinda freaked me out and I spent that Saturday trying to re-create the desolate feel of it and ended up with a weird, industrial soundtrack to go with the pretty standard meat-and-potatoes Dub rhythm track. Totally satisfied with the results I was kinda taken aback by the sheer darkness of the damn thing and am still scratching my head how it just kinda jumped out of me. Where the hell did that come from? Anyway, as much as I like the song I’m not adding it to the coming full length as its feel just differs from the rest of the material too damn much.

Now, if you wanna talk synchronicity let’s rewind roughly two weeks where I’m a bit bummed out about not having the equipment to edit new Greenhorn videos (I switched computers early 2013) and am trying to figure out just when and how to get something rolling when I jot down my little post about the Necronomicon Ex Mortis iPhone Case and wouldn’t you know somewhere in the UK was Robert reading it, clicking “like” and the next thing I’m checking out his portfolio and being blown away by his work – with the rest being history. Like I already stated he was perfect for the job as his imagery fits the feel of the song so good it’s eerie.

So make sure you check out the video on YouTube, it has been added as a download bonus goodie on Bandcamp so check that one out here, and please pay Robert a visit on his official site to check out his portfolio ’cause it’s damn good work. And if you wanna try out the insane Molot VST you can do so here.

Write Up!

I’ve been busying myself sending out tons of promos lately – man, am I thankful for the digital age as postage and packages would’ve cost me a small fortune! – and was informed by director/producer Robert Griffith of The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West that Spy Bop Royale wrote a nice lil’ blurb about Call Me Greenhorn‘s They Call Me Superseven OST album calling it “wild, way-out” and “nutball”. Check it out here and – again! – here’s the link to the Bandcamp page:

Kickstarter (update)

Make sure you head over and check out the Kickstarter campaign for They Call Me Superseven as me and producer/creator Robert Griffith decided to sweeten the deal by offering every backer a free download of Call Me Greenhorn‘s They Call Me Superseven OST album! Yeah,  not only are you doing the production a great service, you also get screen credit plus some nice tune-age for your computer, iPod etc. to enjoy while basking in your new found celluloid glory. Check it out here.

Speaking of the album: The stats on Bandcamp are quite impressive, and I’m thrilled to see the sounds are getting spread all over the dang planet. A bit frustrating when it comes to Twitter though as I’ve found out it’s damn near impossible finding any post pointing people in your direction – I’m a nerd and really want to send out thank-you notes to those that actually take their time to promote my music. Still available here and there’s also a sample track on my SoundCloud:
