Voorhees Stomp

October 23, 2015

Long time no update! Well, these last couple of months pretty much has been all about Videogram. Finishing up the Pre-Cert LP/CD for Austrian label Cineploit and having it sent off to mastering (plus sorting out the artwork, sending in registration forms to my publisher etc.), I immediately sat down to edit a bunch of videos that will be released online these coming months.

First up was the above mentioned Voorhees Stomp directed by Aaron Romero, and, well, I guess we must’ve struck a chord with both horror and gaming fans with this one, ’cause this tribute to both the Friday the 13th 8-bit NES game and Friday the 13th Part VII: Jason Takes Manhattan really took off, receiving some amazing feedback and write-ups from both the horror and gaming communities, and getting an impressive amount of views as well.

It tickled me to no end seeing it getting a much-appreciated mention on Tom Holland’s Terror Time. Being the writer and director of such genre classics such as Class of 1984, Child’s Play, and, my personal fave, Fright Night (“You’re so cool, Brewster!”), it was pretty damn mind blowing knowing that Tom (along with his son that runs said website) not only seen my work, but also wrote about it. Talk about humbling.


Then this happened. I swear I did a spit take the morning I saw legendary merchandiser NECA giving the video a shout-out on their official Facebook page and I did a second one when I saw The A.V. Club giving it a write-up online. Seeing our video sandwiched between news about director Robert Rodriguez‘ next project and the end of America’s Next Top Model was surreal to say the least, but I’m pretty damn grateful ’cause it had the video gathering even more momentum.

Which brings me kinda up to date (head on over to Videogram‘s website for more reviews and write-ups). With all this happening, Cineploit decided to start taking pre-orders of the Pre-Cert album earlier than we initially planned. Slated for release on November 13th, the LP and CD are available now, so if you wanna check it out, head on over to their official website and order your copy. For a taste of what to expect, I uploaded a teaser taste on my SoundCloud. Check it out below. Cheers!


Kodak Moment

September 4, 2015


Well, this really made my day. Not only did House of Monsters‘ director Dawn Brown buy Videogram‘s all-new single Outpost 31 Isn’t Responding, but she also took the time to give it a plug on her official Facebook page. Tres cool, Dawn, and much appreciated!

So, yeah, with both the Camp Blood 10″ pic disc EP and Pre-Cert LP/CD coming later this fall I decided to put out a digital-only single featuring two tracks that won’t appear on my Cineploit debut. If you know your John Carpenter movies – and you should – you won’t have a problem figuring out that it’s a tribute to his 1982 sci-fi horror classic The Thing.

The artwork was created by the very talented artist Van Davis, who’s imagery not only summed up the movie but fit the music perfectly as well, in my opinion. Make sure to check out his work here. The single is available on Bandcamp now, with iTunes, Deezer etc. coming soon-ish. Check it out below and give it a spin on SoundCloud here.


Videogram Lunchmeat VHS!

May 14, 2015

Lunchmeat VHS

Yes! Here it is! I couldn’t be more excited to announce the second physical Videogram release, the Lunchmeat VHS! Released in collaboration with Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine and Doc Terror, this limited-edition VHS features the complete 2014 S/T album in visual form, edited as a faux-trailer show. Fourteen videos in total complete with idents.

But that’s not all! We went out of our way to make this one as beefy as possible, so as an added bonus the VHS includes a 3D version – with glasses included! Wrapped in a clambox shell and featuring artwork by Loud Comix‘ illustrator Jamie Vayda, these are available via Lunchmeat‘s official website only, and, to make it fair for everyone, there are no pre-orders taken. Get it here.

EDIT: The VHS has sold out. A huge thank-you to everyone for the amazing support!

EDIT II: For those that missed out on the VHS the video is now available as a digital download via! It includes the original 34-minute Videogram experience and comes with the VHS-master of the S/T album as a bonus. Get it here.

To commemorate this trés cool release, and give the awesome work Jamie did its due, I am also doing a one-time campaign on Teespring. Screenprinted in blood-red ink on premium yellow t-shirts (giallo, get it?), these limited-edition t-shirts are gorgeous and available in all sizes (S – 3XL). Once they’re gone they will not be reprinted, so make sure to reserve yours today! Get it here.



Diversión en Español!

May 5, 2015

Well, since literally tens of people has been asking about Pure Melvin, here’s a brief update and sample. With Jamie (aka The Jimmy C) focusing on his second full length and me working on Videogram‘s debut album on Cineploit, the coming EP – entitled Profoundly Relaxing – will be pushed forward to some time this coming summer.

The tracks are pretty much finished, it’s just time for mixing, mastering and sequencing that’s needed. Took some time off last night and finished up the mix of Fruta Sabrosa, so give it a spin on SoundCloud and give us a like on Facebook while you’re at it.


Into the Red

April 15, 2015

Check it out: I just received word that UK filmmaker Geoffrey Taylor‘s short documentary Into the Red can be streamed online on YouTube and Vimeo.

A fascinating look into the Redhead Days that takes place annually in Breda, The Netherlands, Geoffrey sets out to dig a little deeper into this phenomenon – as well as make some new friends.

A cool document about something I honestly had no idea existed (I’m brown haired), the documentary is short and to the point and gives a nice look into this unique gathering.

Check it out, spread the word, and if you’re a ginger you might wanna visit the Breda festival on their Facebook page as it has a whopping 90,000+ followers. My track Ginger (heard in the documentary) is available here.

Rome Web Awards

February 23, 2015

Hey, hot on the trail of the Academy Awards I received a bit of pleasantly surprising news this morning. Turns out me and Jerry Kokich‘s track They Call Me Super7even off the ‘They Call Me Superseven’ OST soundtrack has been nominated in the Best Song category of the 2015 Rome Web Awards! Pretty neat.

Now, the announcements were made between February 20th – 22nd, and if my understanding from what I read on the official website is correct, the winners will be announced in September this year. Please keep your fingers crossed and give the track a spin on Bandcamp below.

EDIT: Received an update. The award ceremony will be broadcast on April 17th – 19th.



January 3, 2015


Well, first off, Happy New Year! And did I have a great start or what? I am thrilled to announce that my horror OST-influenced project Videogram is joining Euro label Cineploit‘s roster.

Home of such great artists such as Orgasmo Sonore and Oscillotron, to name just a few, I couldn’t be more excited about joining this label and I am looking forward to getting to work on the second album!

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.

EDIT: If you’ve got Spotify you can give the track a spin 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.
