Smash TV's latest opus, MEMOREX, is 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.
It’s the nostalgiapocalypse for anyone born between 1975 and 1985. Your favorite everything you totally forgot existed.
