September 2019 marks the five-year anniversary of the creation of my Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine tape! Released in May that following year, the original 30-minute version offered faux 'trailers' for every track off my S/T album - utilizing footage from cult movies considered to be in the public domain - with a 3D version added as a bonus courtesy James 'Doc Terror' Harris!
Updated with the remixed and remastered versions off my Videogram Redux album, you can stream the video it in all its 4:3 glory on my YouTube channel here. Videogram Redux, featuring the original S/T album, with previously-unreleased bonus tracks, is available on all streaming services as well as my Bandcamp page here.

I couldn't be more excited to announce that the remixes I did for One Way Static Records back in 2017 have just been released!
The Papaya digital single features two plunderphonic remixes utilizing tracks culled from the remastered stereo tracks of Stelvio Cipriani's 1978 Papaya: Love Goddess of the Cannibals.
The single sees Cipriani's lounge exotica meet rhythm-heavy disco funk, with the title track adding sultry sax and female vocals to enhance the original work, backed with a bare-bones instrumental version, creating a fun, catchy and danceable reinterpretation worthy of inclusion to the collection of any fan of the 1978 movie and soundtrack!
Out now and available exclusively via my Bandcamp page here. Teaser videos on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

Here's a mammoth update for the first quarter of 2019! First off, the two-track Gladiatori dell'Apocalisse (edit) digital single, originally released for Groupees.com's California Wildfire Benefit, is now available to stream and download!
Featuring two previously unreleased tracks, the long-play single sees me revisit and finalize an Italo-flavored outtake from the 2016 Gladiatori dell'Apocalisse 12" EP sessions, with Andrew Claristidge (of Acid Washed) providing a remix of the b side track The Ravagers. Available via Bandcamp and all streaming platforms, teaser video here.
Second, the physical version of my six-track EP tribute to John Carpenter's iconic 1982 classic The Thing - Outpost 31 Isn't Responding - is finally available!
Originally released in the fall of 2015, the 2018 ’redux’ version saw the digital single completely remixed and remastered, and expanded with session outtakes, one freshly-penned track, plus my reimagining of Ennio Morricone's Humanity Pt. 1 added as bonus tracks!
Manufactured on snow-white cassettes with full color A and B side stickers, the "cassingle" comes with a wrap-around sleeve featuring Van Davis' gorgeous original artwork printed on premium recycled card stock. Available via Bandcamp! Teaser videos here and here.
Finally, having received the news that my Test Subject 011 EP is mentioned in Kevin J. Wetmore Jr's book Uncovering Stranger Things, I decided to print up a limited-edition sleeve for the 7" vinyl version to celebrate!
The VHS-inspired alternate artwork, featuring Stranger Things character Eleven in an action pose, is printed on 130 gram folded paper stock, comes in a plastic sleeve and is hand numbered to 50 copies!
Only available via Bandcamp here, it includes a download of the digital EP version that now adds the alternate mix of Test Subject 011 (from the Choice Cuts 2014 - 2018 album) as a bonus track!
