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:

Check out Australian musician Jamie Coghill (aka The Jimmy C‘s) interview with Hammond Chamberlin over at Beyond the Playlist. Pretty in-depth (and twice as long as my own) they cover how he got into music, his creativity and work for The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West. You’ll find it here.

While on the subject, Jamie recently signed with Foghorn Media, re-releasing his The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West Original Web Series Soundtrack album as a seven-track EP. Check it out on iTunes here.

Post #650: Summing up 2013

December 31, 2013

Oh jeez, has it been a whole year already? Well, 2013 sure flew by fast I can tell you and I can’t say I remember that much on account of pretty much working my ass off for these past 52 weeks. In fact I once again had to go through the blog in order to check up on what happened and when because it’s all kind of a blur to me. So here we go:

copyright Sellergren Design 2011!January saw the release of Germany-based CRKO #3/4, which I made one of the covers for. Mid-through the month I finally got PropellerheadsReason 6.5 and music-wise things were never quite the same. The rough mix of In Space, originally slated for my first full length album, somehow turned into a 7-song EP released towards the end of the month. The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West was released in a mammoth 5 DVD box collecting their initial 28 episodes plus bonus goodies like The Norliss TapesGroovy video. My work for the series earned both me and The Norliss Tapes our own pages on IMDB.com.

February saw the release of Sal Canzonieri‘s book Electric Frankenstein, compiling posters and record sleeves made for them during the period of  June 2005 to December 2013, but I’ve still to receive any confirmation that my contributions are in it. Check out on Amazon.com.

March saw the initial demos for my faux-OST L’Isola die Morti Viventi being created, starting out with A Modest Tribute to Fabio Frizzi. Meanwhile I finished up most of the tracks for the Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West soundtrack album and released the doomsday-dub Armageddon Dub, with a b-side featuring some drumming courtesy The Jimmy C.

squawkyApril kicked off with the release of the super-silly EP Squawky – featuring one of my personal fave b-sides The Name is West. A teaser-taste freebie of the coming soundtrack album was released and the They Call Me Superseven OST was released mid-month. The web series ran a successful campaign on Kickstarter, generating funds for the third season. UK label Dead by Mono‘s third installment of No Way Out! saw the physical debut of The Norliss Tapes with the track A Trip to the Moon. Me and UK photographer Robert Boud crossed paths resulting in some pretty cool collaborations. The end of the month saw the release of Call Me Greenhorn’s new-wave-ish Chasing the Dawn EP, originally slated for inclusion in an Australia-produced feature, but somehow that fell through. The poster I created to commemorate the launch of The Bigfoot Diaries live radio show was released in a limited edition.

May saw the release of Robert Boud’s video for Armageddon Dub, more dub sounds as The Titan Was Deemed Unsinkable was posted on SoundCloud, more videos as Robert Griffith‘s Here Comes Gorbot was made official and The Harvester appeared on SoundCloud, slated for an EP that I totally forgot about. The Jimmy C released the eight-track EP The Man Who Never Dies featuring three mixes I did and the month ended with the release of the CMGH2 album, aka The Abandoned Project.

June kicked off with a teaser taste from my stoner project Ursa Major, followed by The Hit ‘In Sounds’ of Today’s Outside Crowd album and I chipped in some $$$ on Kickstarter for James R. Petix and Sarah Babila‘s documentary It Came From Detroit.

July had me creating some merchandise designs for Belgium’s own Captain Catastrophy, I released the I’m Normal! cloudcast on MixCloud, released the “summer bonus” EP L’amour en Apesanteur and started my second side project Get Carpenter – I gotta admit I just love that name!

August saw me launching my page on Society 6, kicking off with the August 18, 1973 series honoring Tobe Hooper‘s horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. My stoner side project Ursa Major debuted with its 18-minute two-track Like Leaves and the end of the month saw the release of my faux-OST L’Isola die Morti Viventi.

September saw the launch of greenhorndub.bandcamp.com where I added the four-track The Titan Was Deemed Unsinkable EP after things turned out less-than-optimal over at dubmusic.com. The same month Pink Hulk EP followed. The John-Carpenter-meets-King-Tubby track Cutthroats at Midnight was finished and I began work on a S/T EP. The end of the month saw the release of the Halloween-themed The Ghost of Lee Van Cleef EP and Robert Boud’s video The Modern Day Holocaust.

In October I chipped in more of my hard-earned cash to support Tal Zimerman‘s project Why Horror? on Kickstarter, a documentary on the whys behind this film genre, and I even had a chance to do an interview with the guy for Swedish Gore Film Society. Towards the end of the month my second Haunted House of Horrors cloudcast was released in time for Halloween.

November saw me creating some artwork for U.S.-based true crime magazine Serial Killer Magazine and the end of the month saw the release of the Cutthroats at Midnight EP.

Finally, December saw the launch of Jamie Vayda‘s Loud Comix #2 – featuring a sleeve by yours truly – the release of the It Came From Detroit documentary – check it out! – and some videos I edited with a new freebie video editing software: Battle è in Arrivo, In Orbit, Invasion of the Dead and Voodoo Rhythm/A Feast on Flesh.

Yikes! How’s that for a list? Gee, no wonder I’m tired. But then again, I am quite enjoying myself and hopefully people out there enjoy what I create as well. Got more cool things happening in 2014 and I’d appreciate you joining me to check ‘em out. ‘Til then, Happy New Year!

Two-Fer (plus one)

October 23, 2013

Things are moving along quite nicely in the Adventures of Superseven camp! The latest episode Operation: Hard Kill in Fresno was released a couple of days ago, offering up some nice puns and silly action.  Got some cool music as well courtesy me (The Fez) and The Jimmy C, including his cover of Superseven Chase Theme that I provided some moog and other weird noises for.

Speaking of which, Robert Griffth sent me an email hepping me that the all-new blooper reel for the show has been made available on YouTube (check below), and the series was recently made official selection at the 2014 Rome Web Awards (yay!). Check out their official website here.

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?

Link Roundup

Hey! New week and a new post! Well, just a quickie update going through some news in Camp Sellergren etc. ’cause I am keeping myself quite busy (gee whadda surprise!). Here we go:

UK-based Gorilla Film Magazine gave a super-nice plug for Call Me Greenhorn‘s L’Isola dei Morti Viventi OST album earlier this week – to which I am much, much obliged. Check it out here and get a taste of the “…sweet, sweet Zombie inspired tunes” here.

Music-wise I can proudly announce that I will shortly sign a third sync-license contract, this time with a German agency in order to cover Europe. That leaves Japan/Asia and Australia in my quest to have representation on all continents, but in the mean time I’ll spin this with my morning coffee. I jest, of course, but it is pretty damn thrilling.

While on the subject of music; I recently received two emails from DJ Supercrunk and Scary Monster - or shit, make that back in July! (Jeez am I running behind on stuff.) Anyway, both are creating sounds in the mash-up genre and you can check out the DJ’s project I Heart Bowie here and the Monster’s (feat. Rodney DangerfieldGet Laid here. Tell ‘em I sent ya!

Got some new stuff made available on my Society 6. There’s Xirdneth, another addition to my Cthulhu Rising series (yes, I fully intend to do every creature); the pop art-y All Hands; a tribute to the 1961 zombie cult classic The Dead One aka Blood of the Zombie called Voodoo Drums; a tribute to Franz Kafka‘s Metamorphosis entitled Gregor Samsa (check it out at the top); and finally Octaman!, that’s a tribute to the 1971 cult classic with the same name. Check ‘em out, but keep in mind that us Europeans have to add roughly $10 per order to cover shipping.

My page on Facebook is starting to take off so please join me at http://www.facebook.com/SellergrenDesign. The same goes for CMGH’s that you’ll find at http://www.facebook.com/CallMeGreenhorn. How ’bout joining them both? Cheers!

While on the subject; UK photographer Robert Boud recently joined the S6 family, so check out his works at http://society6.com/RobertBoud. I still wish you’d add that Walking Dead-esque bonus photo to the collection, Rob, he he he.

Like I already stated I love browsing Society 6 ’cause there are tons and tons of just brilliant works waiting to be perused. My recent finds (that I will get my hands on one day, dammit) are Billy Ludwig‘s Impale Design (WWII meets Star Wars), Ong Ngoc Phuong (great surreal stuff with a tad Rauschenberg feel), Ron E. Ott (his Gthulu Washingfthtagn is a must for Lovecraft fans!), John Branham‘s Zombietron that has this insanely good Leatherface art print available, and lastly (but sure not least!) Eli Wolff that has a unique style of his own that kinda reminds me of Joe Coleman. His Kali art print will grace my living room wall shortly. Check ‘em all out!

And finally, my colleague Jamie Coghill, the co-provider of sounds for The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West under The Jimmy C moniker, is currently looking for some supplemental income. I quote from his Facebook:

I’m looking for some freelance graphic design work to do from home. I’m cheap and I’ve been designing since 2000 working in the CD/DVD industry. I’ve done heaps of CD covers, logos and posters so if anyone needs something done or knows someone who does let me know!

If you’ve got an upcoming project hit him up by writing him a message here.

And to finish this off like I started: Check out Aidan Quinn‘s brilliant reading of the genius opening of Kafka’s novel below. ‘Til next time. Cheers!

Two-Fer

August 27, 2013

Well, things have been pretty darn hectic over at Camp Sellergren lately, with more additions to my Society 6 page as well as writing and recording a new album for Call Me Greenhorn - yeah, there’s another one coming. The fourth this year (wanna talk workaholic prolific?), it’s pretty much a 100% pure fan boy project that’s been a complete blast to work on. I’ll post some news about it later on this week.

In the mean time make sure to check out the two latest episodes of The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West. I’ve been so preoccupied lately I completely forgot to mention Operation: Doom Service that was posted on August 5th (I was busy working on the August 18, 1973 project). Heavy on Zucker-esque comedy the episode has a brilliant intro with phony subtitles plus a nice batch of tunage from both me and Aussie colleague The Jimmy C.

The second episode – Operation: Destructo – got a great spaghetti western intro with a killer track from Jamie (aka TJC). He sent me an mp3 of it a while back and I’ve been listening to it tons of times ’cause it’s just brilliant and would fit in nicely with Morricone‘s work for Leone‘s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. It also features The Ghost of Lee Van Cleef – that’ll be released in October as part of Greenhorn’s Halloween EP – and how cool is it Star Trek‘s BarBara Luna guest stars in it?

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!

“Hey Hey I’m Greenhorn…”

May 23, 2013

Hey peeps, make sure to check out the 31st episode of The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West available now! Entitled Operazione: Video Musicale it’s a silly and fun romp that is very Monkees-esque and featuring music videos for Call Me Greenhorn and Jerry Kokich‘s I Am Superseven as well as The Jimmy C‘s Sandra West Theme and Clear Today.

Taken from the recently-released They Call Me Superseven OST that is still available on my Bandcamp. Nineteen tracks in total that were written for or inspired by the series. Tons of goodies. Check it out below and tell your friends!

The Man Who Never Dub

I just received a heads up from Aussie musician The Jimmy C that the The Man Who Never Dies EP has been released on his Bandcamp today! Eight tracks in total it includes the three separate mixes I did of the title track – that also appears on the Orbital Debris album – with five bonus tracks.

Like I already wrote I did one basic remix of the track, one alt. mix that offers a bit more structural changes and one final Dub mix that, well, as I bluntly stated before, “f**cked with it”. That last one was actually fun to see added as I was totally convinced it was too “out there” for inclusion.

Other tracks include the hilarious Tracky Dacks – which I guess is the Australian phrase for “sweat pants” – that opens with the funniest damn lyrics I’ve heard in ages: “I know you must feel comfortable but it looks like you have given up on life…” and the great swagger of Hey Esmarelda that reminds me of the stuff he offered on the 2009 Glamour & Fame album.

All in all yet another great release from Jamie, so make sure you check it out, and for your consideration, the dub version of the title track:
