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!

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:

Shadows of Prey

September 26, 2014

Check out the debut episode of Austrian director John Brito‘s web series Shadows of Prey that premiered online today! I had a sneak peek roughly a week ago and think this turned out pretty cool – especially considering this is a 100% no budget affair!

I love the title animation that really sets a nice tone, and with the music I produced being used for the end titles I sure have no reason to complain. So give it a peek and help spread the word!

EDIT: Read more about the series on John’s blog here.

October

September 14, 2014

Hey, Sunday! For some odd reason starting this post had me thinking of the SimpsonsSunday, Cruddy, Sunday episode, which has nothing to do with either football or my state of mind – ’cause quite frankly I am having a blast right now – but that’s the way the creative mind works I guess. And the Trio track was just something that seemed fun.

So, October seems to be the month where lots of things are happening. I am keeping quite busy finishing up three different physical releases for Videogram plus a digital Halloween-themed one, so you wanna talk about flooding the market, ha ha ha. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed there’ll be a demand for it because I am working like crazy and hate to see that amount of time, energy and effort going to waste.

One thing that won’t happen though is the Haunted House of Horror mixes I’ve posted on Mixcloud for these past two years. There just isn’t any time for it and since I usually wanna spend a couple of months culling the tracks and work on in-between songs FX I figured I’d pass on it this year. But part one and two are still online so I’m sure I’ll spam the crap out of it re-post both of them later on. And as an added bonus you can finally embed the web players on WordPress!

Also, I received an email earlier this week from Austrian director John Brito. Seems like the first episode of Shadows of Prey is ready to premiere (don’t have a set date, though). I’ve already seen it and think it turned out really good. More episodes are in the works and I’ll start culling together the tracks I created for the series and release them digitally as an EP as soon as possible. Maybe in …October.

Lunchmeat!

August 5, 2014

lunchmeat

…as weird as it is for an old punker to admit, VIDEOGRAM is sort of a concept album… Head on over to Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine to read the all-new interview I did, covering the origins of the album, what’s coming in the near future and a pretty damn fine review of the album as a whole.

Sellergren has masterfully captured the most iconic aural tropes of Italian horror scoring, pushed them through his own personal filter, and melded them with an unmistakable and eerie 80s synth-driven scope of sounds to concoct what may just be the most powerful piece of electronic scoring to hit the horror community this year.

Read it here and check out the official page on Facebook here.

Cheers to DJ Bongoboy and MC Zirconium of Project Moonbase who aired Regina dei Cannibali End Titles off the Videogram album during last night’s show Vision Receiver!

Roughly an hour’s length, the episode features some cool Nigerian funk courtesy Keyboard, more reissued material from Italian composer Piero Umiliani and a nice track from Jez Butler. Stream or download it here.

More podcast action comes via Dead Air that aired mid-July. Featuring Doc Terror himself, it covers the Italian Horror Week, Lucio Fulci‘s cult classic video nasty The Beyond and a discussion about my recent album. Stream or download here. While on the subject, the video:
