Smash TV - Memorex Trailer

Music: VHS Head - Trademark Ribbons Of Gold

The Memorex trailer is finally here!

Been working on this 50 minute behemoth for almost a year now, so we’re happy to finally share a sampling of what you can expect. Memorex is comprised of 80s commercial footage, highlighting the insane consumerism and brainwashing images many of us grew up with.

Memorex will be the most nostalgic thing you’ve ever seen if you were a kid in the 80s. Culled from over forty hours of 80’s commercials pulled from warped VHS tapes. Endless beach parties, Saturday morning cartoons, sexy babes, sleek cars, toys you forgot existed, station idents, early computer animation, all your favorite sugary cereal mascots, and so much more. An ode to the hyper consumerism and sleek veneer of a simpler time.

The audio, mixed by your friends at Smash TV, provides a perfect accompaniment to the warped and weirdly nostalgic footage, like finding your favorite cassette from childhood after it’s been baking in the sun for 25 years. VHS Head, Hype Williams, LA Vampires, and Boards Of Canada are just a few of the artists you can expect to hear.

Memorex goes live on January 17th, 2013, with a special screening at the Spectacle Theater on 1/16/13 if you are in Brooklyn.

But for now, enjoy the trailer for an idea of what’s to come.

Is it live? Or is it Memorex?

Stay Tuned…
