I’ve followed TOBACCO for years now. From fronting the eccentric, electronic band Black Moth Super Rainbow to his solo releases, TOBACCO (whose real name is Thomas Fec) makes analog synth music work in this dark, fucked-up, spooky way, with his solo work being the creepiest in my opinion. Fun fact: He based his stage name on ‘Tobacco Man’ from Troma’s film ‘Redneck Zombies.’
He recently released a new album, ‘Ultima Massage II.’ The latest single release, ‘Streaker,’ takes synth electronica and revs it up to a murderous, paranoid fever pitch. The music video for ‘Streaker’ is equally if not more disturbing. The maestro behind the madness of the video is none other than Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric). His direction and vision takes TOBACCO to a savage, psychedelic intensity.
