Disco Suicide Podcast 011: Acid Washed!




Head on over to SoundCloud and check out Acid Washed's latest mix for Disco Suicide! The French duo, signed to Record Makers (Kavinsky etc.), offers up an hour's worth of dance-friendly material from a wide variety of artists such as Andrew Weatherall, Moscoman and Khidja, and even added In 2077 A.D. off my Gladiatori dell'Apocalisse EP! Check it out here.

This isn't the first time the duo has been kind to include Videogram sounds in their work. Last year they added Voorhees Stomp off my Camp Blood 10" EP on their radio show for Heartbeats. More on that here.

I Warned You Not To Go Out Tonight (Extended Version)!



Check out RetroSynth's all-new extended video they created for I Warned You Not To Go Out Tonight - taken from my debut S/T album! Using footage from William Lustig's 1980 sleazy classic Maniac, which is the main inspiration for the track, they created a two-fer trailer including the spoken word warning from my most-recent Gladiatori dell Apocalisse EP on Cineploit. Check it out here.

My all-new cover of John Carpenter's Halloween Theme has gotten some nice write-ups this past week! Make sure to check out Trash Mutant's review of both the track and video here, and head on over to That's Not Current for an all-new interview here.

Last, but not least, I uploaded my Halloween Theme to my SoundCloud earlier this week. Check it out here and don't forget to download the track via my Bandcamp page here.

Halloween!




Here we go: As Halloween's coming closer I decided to release a little treat for my fellow horror fans - a cover of John Carpenter's iconic 1978 Halloween Theme!

I've been having a love affair with this track since the first time I saw the opening titles of this 1978 horror classic and it was such a treat working out both the arrangements and the video.

The video premiered this evening (6 P.M. CET) via The 80's Guy and, just like my cover version, is based on the original (in this case the 1978 trailer), with some changes.

The track is available via my Bandcamp only, and at name-your-price, so make sure to check it out here and the video here.

Manufactured on fiery red cassettes with full color A and B side stickers, the cassette comes in a wraparound sleeve with full color artwork and a free download of the digital version. There's no reserve, act fast and order yours here.

Artists featured will be, to just mention a few, Perturbator, Carpenter Brut, Cineploit label mates Zoltan and Videogram. Check out their YouTube channel here and make sure to give their official Facebook page a like here.

Haddonfield, New Jersey's radio show Baron's Crypt aired some choice Videogram cuts in their recent show focusing on horror features released in 2016. Other acts include Misfits' own Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein! The show airs on Fridays at 6:30 PM Eastern, but you can stream it here. Check them out on their official Facebook page here.

In other news I'm pretty thrilled to share that Vestra Pictures just announced that their coming documentary VHS Lives will be released on both limited-edition VHS and DVD this year! They also announced that they have secured a distributor for this documentary and that it will see a release on DVD and VOD in early 2017.

A fun look into the collector scene and other things VHS, the documentary features interviews with Troma's Lloyd Kaufman, director Jörg Buttgereit, Thomas Hodge aka The Dude Designs, and me, talking mainly about Videogram and how VHS left its mark on me and my music.
