VHS Lives: Pre-orders available now!


An update on the VHS Lives documentary: Mid-March I received word that the UK-produced documentary had secured distribution on DVD via WWMD, and this past weekend the DVD was announced being available to pre-order! You can order your copy here.

The documentary, featuring myself and Videogram's music, as well as Jörg Buttgereit, Troma's own Lloyd Kaufman, and Josh from Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine, and others, goes deep into the psyche of VHS collectors, SOV filmmakers, and VHS-inspired musicians/producers, and shows why the old VHS tapes you have rotting away in your loft are becoming antique collectors pieces!

Awesome way to relive the 80's!

More information via Vestra Pictures on Facebook here, you'll find the documentary Facebook page here, and on IMDB, complete with a full listing of the cast and crew, here. The trailer (featuring He's Still Out There that appears on the digital version of my Camp Blood EP):

Voorhees Stomp (Acid Washed Remix)!

Artwork by Jesse Philips.

Just in time for Friday the 13th, French electronic duo Acid Washed sink their teeth into Voorhees Stomp, the tongue-in-cheek tribute to Crystal Lake's favorite mama's boy!

The Record Makers' artists - whose previous remix collaborations include Moby, Wolfmother, and Jimmy Somerville - updates the fun, retro-tinged 2015 original and delivers a hard-edged, stomping crossover dance remix with powerful rhythm, booming effects, and ominous, eerie synths.

The track comes with outstanding Jason X-themed artwork by U.S. poster artist Jesse Philips, whose impressive portfolio includes a wide variety of artists such as The Pixies, Radiohead, Napalm Death, and Beck, to mention just a few.

Available as a digital-only track via my official Bandcamp page, with iTunes, Google Play etc. following on Friday the 13th. Get it here.

Heavy Metal Horror Cast!


Hail to the Chin, baby! Grab your chainsaw, fire up the Oldsmobile and check out the latest episode of Heavy Metal Horror Cast, as they revisit personal fave Evil Dead 2, and play some choice cuts off my Test Subject 011 EP on SelectaVision.

Slapstick, surreal and truly superb, Sam Raimi's Evil Dead 2 is a welcome revisit to the cabin that started it all. Through mastery and mayhem, it has gone on to become one of the most well loved and revered sequels of all time, establishing an icon in both Bruce Campbell and his character Ash.
Sue heads back to Professor Knowby's pad, chatting comedy capers, sweaty siblings and an ingenious plot which helped to ensure the films release. We'll also be checking out the fantastic track Test Subject 11, from the synth-tastic Videogram.
You can check out the episode via their official website here, but also on Acast, iHeartRADIOiTunes, PodBean, and TuneIn, to mention a few. Groovy!

EDIT: The episode has been uploaded and can be streamed via SoundCloud:

VHS Lives!

The documentary, featuring myself and Videogram's music, Jörg Buttgereit, Troma's own Lloyd Kaufman, and Josh from Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine, to mention just a few, goes deep into the psyche of VHS collectors, SOV filmmakers, VHS-inspired musicians/producers such as myself, and shows why the old VHS tapes you have rotting away in your loft are becoming antique collectors pieces!
