Espectrostatic releases “Phantominom VGS” as benefit

Good news: Hex Dispensers‘ Alex Cuervo has finally followed up his debut Espectrostatic LP on Trouble in Mind!

Bad news: it’s to benefit the medical expenses of the Hex Dispensers’ Rebecca Whitley. She had to have a 23-pound ovarian cyst removed from her. You can see the VERY uncomfortable images of that here (not recommended if you’re planning on eating anything involving tomatoes for the next few days).

The cyst was benign, but medical bills are expensive, as anyone who’s ever had to have a major medical procedure done can attest (Team Nuthouse featured a gallbladder removal and facial reconstruction surgery in one month that its still paying off almost 7 years later). So, you can get a brand-new Espectrostatic release, Phantominom VGS, available for the first time today, and help out Ms. Whitley. What is the Phantominom VGS, you ask? Well …

Based on the urban legend of an ’80s era video game console purchased at a garage sale that no-one had ever heard of, with mysterious electrical and television connectors that did not match any existing technology. The assumption being that this console was not from our world, but from a nearby parallel universe.

The Phantominom VGS EP features 6 songs– all constructed to the imagined/assumed audio specifications of the Phantominom VGS. Those specifications being 4 monophonic FM synthesizer channels with the luxurious addition (for it’s time) of 3 PCM audio percussion channels. This is state of the art stuff circa 1988 (and slightly ahead of what was technologically available in OUR universe around that time).

Purchase Phantominom VGS and you get three new Espectrostatic songs, remixes of two songs from his debut LP, and a remix of the Hex Dispensers’ “Parallel” that will rock socks, plus a photograph of the Phantominom VGS box art.
