Quijada

March 2, 2014

Well,  I finally got around to get a page on SoundCloud for my Call Me Greenhorn project, adding at least one song each from the over a dozen releases I did last year. As an added bonus I decided to upload the recently finished track Quijada from the coming Space Kitty 2000 album.

Also, make sure to check out Gorilla Film Magazine‘s debut podcast episode of The Bunker featuring Veronica Simmonds, Tim Dalling and BAFTA winning animator Mikey Please, with music by Keir Docherty, Jonathan Day and yours truly.

Give ’em a spin at https://soundcloud.com/callmegreenhorn and spread the word! More teasers from the coming album:

Round ’em Up!

Well, that was a quick week! Jeez, I’m guessing ol’ Einstein* was right after all. Anyhoo, another productive week, or make that “semi-productive” (I’ll get into that), and here’s what’s new in Camp Sellergren:

The image at the top is my finished ad for the upcoming issues of Loud Comix, a collection of comics written by punk rock heroes and illustrated by Jamie Vayda. There’s tons of cool stuff to come (the first edition features stories written by Sonny Harlan, Alan King, Frankie Nowhere and Erika Lane), and yours truly is doing the sleeve for the second issue out in November. Distributed by Birdcage Bottom Books you can get your copy here. Find Jamie on Facebook here.

Things have been real slow over at Society 6. My God Save the Queen art print sure got some attention, but other than that I haven’t had time to produce much at all (again, I’ll get into that). I got around to add some sticker designs over at Red Bubble (some turned out real neat like Lysergic Saucer-Man), so check them out here. My official Facebook page broke the 1,000 followers limit these past few days (yay!), and cool artists I found on S6 are Olive Primo Design + Illustration, Jazzberry Blue, and Hillary White producing more awesomeness with her Sir C.H.U.D. portrait. Check them all out!

Speaking of art, you gotta go check out Jason Edmiston‘s stuff! This guy is just amazing. Mainly focusing on horror-themed art, he also got some cool music-related stuff like this mutant Joey Ramone portrait that is just gorgeous. On average, prices range from $40 up to $85 (a bargain considering the quality of his work!) so check him out and show some love.

In the cool t-shirt department, Madman Marz announced on the official Facebook page that they’re kicking off their Halloween holiday sale deducting $10 off their prices, starting October 1st. More info here.

Music-wise I’ve been busy working on Call Me Greenhorn‘s Cutthroats at Midnight EP. This track made a bit of a stir and I was pleasantly surprised seeing Gorilla Film Magazine once again plugging it along with Robert Boud‘s video for Armageddon Dub! Things came to a halt though since Sweden decided to introduce “Blitzkrieg Winter”, having the temperature make a staggering drop from an average of +15 degrees to zero (make that 59 – 32 F) in one day and the next thing you know I’m sick as a dog and blowing earth tone rainbows into tissues. Got four songs finished though and I’ll get right back to it as soon as I feel better.

Have a great weekend!

*Einstein calculated that the closer an object travels at the speed of light, the slower time passes. This applies, of course, the other way ’round as well. And with the universe being a result of Big Bang – a humongous explosion we’re still in the middle of! – that’s slowly losing its momentum, we actually are experiencing time speeding up.

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!
