Biography

TOBACCO can’t have nice things.

On his third album, the Pennsylvania snake-synth-charmer deepens his approach to aural depravity. Ultima II Massage widens a jagged swath through the dude’s own weird catalog, each disparate track damaged to the point of contributing to some sort of greater, lurching Frankenstein-like state. “I spent a lot of time breaking it in all the ...

Editorial Reviews

2010 sophomore effort from this musical outlet from Black Moth Super Rainbow's main constituent. Seemingly relegating BMSR to side project status, mastermind Tobacco bullies his previous works into a corner, guts them and leaves 'em for dead. Features guest contributions from Beck.

It just fits, this record. The beats, the tones, it's old but it's new. I probably shouldn't write a review for a record I've played once and haven't even finished yet, but screw it, that's alcohol and isolation for you. If you were interested enough to look this up, you should have bought this already. It is what it is, a dude bringing the 70's through the meat-grinder of the now. Ugly. I think some platinum artist appears on this. Screw him. Fodder for stickers on wrappers and pushed units. "AIR as the Toxic Avenger", how's that for sticker fodder?

Shut up, just shut up.

5.0 out of 5 stars My jam September 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't even want to play any of my other CDs anymore. I just want to hear Maniac Meat. The drum breaks are a little slow but slam hard as f***, and every synth line makes me pump my fist. If you hate vocoder, then that's too bad, because it has never sounded more gross and sticky and rotten, fading between pitched-down meltyness and candy-robot layers. Pitchfork Media described the sounds on this album as being similar to Nintendo dirtbike sounds, and I would agree. It's like you are stuck in a Pole Position game and you suddenly start questioning if your really driving strait into hell. But, don't get confused, because this is a really poppy album and not doomy at all, however, the more you listen the more it's like some evil Willy Wonka s*** that leaves you hypnotized. I can't even describe this, because it's so punk like Death From Above, but so bubbly like Air, and it kills everything. Basically this is the best music ever! I would take this over a candy bar any day. Apparently, per Wikipedia, the artist claims this is inspired by old 80's aerobics VHS tapes. That's about right.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is your brain on drugs September 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a grower, not a shower. First the Beck tracks appealed to me. Then "Lick the Witch". Etc. There are so many layers to this production that you will be constantly finding new favorites. Followers of 'Skinny Puppy' or SP side project 'Download' will appreciate this. In my opinion TOBACCO has grown well beyond the confines of 'black moth super rainbow'. TOBACCO is BMSR untethered, whipping and lashing tentacles in the sonic abyss. It's like slow seep of battery acid in a lobotomy crack to your brain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intensely pleasurable... March 5, 2012
By Ralius
Format:Audio CD
Intrigued by the astounding album cover (a throwback to 1980s Garbage Pail Kids cards with some old 80s D-list horror film VHS covers thrown in for good measure), I downloaded "Maniac Meat" with mild trepidation -- I was expecting unlistenable modernistic indie schlock. What I heard instead defies description. It's dark, noisy, organized chaos that makes you want to DANCE. Just buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Throwback sounds that sound inspired. January 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Makes you want to dance and then immediately take a hot shower. Being unfamiliar with mastermind Tom Fec's main band, I have no basis for comparison and perhaps that's critical in objectively reviewing a piece of music this unique. The first couple of listens reveal this album as deceptively simple, a couple more listens later and I'm delighted by all the layered samples he's buried underneath Tobacco's apparent signature maelstrom of distorted basslines and vintage synth tones. I found myself hypnotized by the array of effects he employs here: manipulating his vocals in a more disturbing way than anything anyone in industrial music has done in years, escalating the pitch of noises until my ears thirst for what's coming next, utilizing clichés like the 808 drum machine in segue with warbled synth patterns that invert 80's pastiche nostalgia creatively. Best listened to during evening hours.

If you're not open minded or into electronic music, definitely avoid this. Otherwise, give this album a few listens and you will be rewarded with addictive rhythms and melodies. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars This Tobacco will not give you cancer, but it may indeed scare you
Dirty beats, dirty synths, and a whole lot of vocoder. Very nice. Tell your friends to give Tobacco a try.

This album is something else. It's like a VHS workout movie horror soundtrack. Just watch some of the videos on youtube to get an idea. Very analog sound. Great listening.
