Biography

VHS Head is Adrian Blacow. Hailing from Blackpool, England; his debut EP Video Club dropped on the electronic label Skam, described as an Art of Noise-inspired chop-and-splice funhouse funk. Micro-sampling video tape as the primary sound source from a vast amount of VHS tapes, VHS Head is able to pick from a platter of archival noises and vocal samples that, on “Rent Responsibly”, run in range from a sort of gooey familiarity (plush keyboard arpeggios, tubular bass noodling) to stuff that sounds dredged from some weird mechanical nightmare (industrial-hard plinks and plunks, creeped-out sci-fi synth tones).

    it just looks unappealing. maybe that's the point. but it's not even appealing in its ugliness, it's just... ugly

    i dont get the album cover hate? whats wrong with it, the music is heavily 80s and the cover is right out of a david cronenberg movie.

    Loving the darker tone of Persistence of Vision, but man is that a fucking ugly album cover. Still, might be my album of the year at the moment...

    five tracks into persistence of vision and i am exhausted, it's such a dense album
