Chatroulette was an added bonus, the real optic stimulation came from Tobacco’s prepared footage. Easing Portland into his twisted, sensory set, 8-bit visual psychedelia floated alongside 8-bit analog synths and samples as sailing Magic Eye sailboats coasted through willows and neon geometric patterns. A cult film aficionado, Tobacco took his name from Redneck Zombies and has a soft spot for ’80s awkwardness. His rhinestone encrusted beats chomped along with clips of early ’80s Fat Boys music videos, but entertaining hilarity quickly turned downright disturbing as head after head after head crashed through glass table tops.
Read the rest on OMN plus hear a track from Tobacco's new album Maniac Meat.
