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!

I just received word that the UK-produced documentary VHS Lives has secured distribution and will be released this year. Not much more to share at the moment, but physical format will be available this coming spring.

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!

For more information you can give Vestra Pictures a Facebook like here, give the documentary a like here, and you'll find it on IMDB, complete with a full listing of the cast, here.
