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.
