Another Year Not Dead!

For a second taste off Videogram's Choice Cuts compilation, head on over to Brutal Resonance's official Bandcamp page and download their all-new compilation Another Year Not Dead!

The 24-track compilation features The Demogorgon, an initial taste from the Videogram and Andrew Claristidge collaboration sessions. The track marked a first and sees me and the Acid Washed member head into industrial territory, drawing influences from, among others, Front 242, Ministry and RevCo.

The fourteen-track Choice Cuts 2014 - 2018 compilation will be available on June 25. You can pre-order via Amazon, Bandcamp, Deezer, Google Play, and iTunes. You can download the Brutal Resonance compilation here.

Choice Cuts!

June 25 marks the four-year anniversary of Videogram, as the S/T album - rereleased last year as Videogram Redux - made its debut to coincide with Doc Terror's Italian Horror Week.

To celebrate this, SelectaVision is releasing the Choice Cuts 2014 - 2018 compilation on CD and digital! The fourteen-track album culls tracks from all official Videogram releases with additional bonus tracks - all remixed and remastered specifically for this release.

The album includes a taste from the Videogram and Andrew Claristidge sessions, a demo from the scrapped Slasher EP, outtakes, tracks from the Pre-Cert LP/CD, the Gladiatori dell'Apocalisse and Camp Blood EPs, as well as tracks from omitted releases such as the Cobretti three-track EP.

The release date is set to June 25, but pre-orders of both the digital release and CD are available on Bandcamp now.

Vinyl of the Month!


Extremely excited to receive the news that Performer Magazine picked my Test Subject 011 7" on SelectaVision as their Vinyl of the Month!

Reviewing the single, they sum it up as "an open love letter to not just Stranger Things, but everything in the 80's VHS Horror world", with the A-side sounding as "a long-lost Italian disco version of a vintage John Carpenter soundtrack," and the B-side as "if Fabio Frizzi had scored The Neverending Story"!
For fans of old school slashers and those who miss browsing the aisles of Blockbuster for the latest horror releases on VHS, this contemporary re-imagining of a lovable niche genre is just the ticket to bring you back to those glory days.
Again, this is very exciting news. Many thanks to Ben and the rest of the staff for this honor. Read the review in full here.

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 via WWMD direct hereForbidden Planet here and iTunes 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):
