i'm sure oscillik is well aware of this...right?



I tweeted him a couple of days ago.

Lol. He probably knew about it before Neil had even finished the mastering.

Pre-ordered the green cassette via Bleep. Also Neil Scrivin's Tomorrow's World.

If you listen to them a fair amount you'll probably hear the differences. It seems to be mostly melodic nowadays, where Scrivin/Meatbingo was a bit cleaner and slicker a few years back. VHS Head seems to be inspired heavily by 80s pop aesthetics where I think Scrivin plays/played in bands and I feel like he's got a bit of a prog/math thing going on with his melodies and harmonies.

I'd say Scrivin/Meatbingo/Phono Ghosts is more synthpop influenced and to some degree BOC influenced also (esp. Twenty Years on Ben Nevis and some PG stuff). VHS Head draws his influence from 80s B-movie soundtracks. Well he uses them as source material, doesn't he?


imo tbh idk

ay makes sense, guess a lot of sample sharing and production techniques etc is happening


There's also VHS Head's brother, but he doesn't seem to really release any of his stuff, that I can find. Just some older uploads to Soundcloud.

Wish that guy would release some of his stuff.

      Available in Digital, 45RPM 12", and Cassette.
      Phono Ghosts returns with ‘Photons in Fashion’ featuring eight new tracks of intricately spliced tape samples, continuing the psychedelic eclectic sound that marked out his previous releases on Fonolith (Solar Dream Reel) and Skam (Chrome Position).
      Over 30 minutes, ‘Photons in Fashion’ careers between the forceful ‘80s digi-funk blast of ‘Cassential’, space-lounge groove of ‘Binary Dynamics’ and hypnotic disco of the title track; progressing through to the brooding ‘Dramakai’ and slinky fretless bass of ‘Observatory of the Soul’, interspersed with dream-like fragmentary interludes, before closing out with the idiosyncratic synth bleeping of ‘Hear Me Read My Genetic Chirpy Chip’.

      This release supposedly comes from Neil Scriven, close friend of fellow nostalgic samplist VHS Head. I'm becoming a big fan of the sound the Blackpool boys are creating. The release date says 2010, but I definitely haven't crossed this before in my travels so maybe it has only been posted recently...
