Dr. Devious and the Wiseman – Dance In Cyberspace (1992)

12 Jul

Music and video production from the late Guru Josh.

In his own words:

I thought, why not mix computer graphics to music and sell them as a visual album. There was no market. Woolworth’s and HMV said if you sell 2 thousand that’s good. Visual videos do not sell.

Despite no market I believed this was the next big thing and put my money, over 150 grand into digital video equipment, computers. I took 15 unemployed computer kids on the street, converted the 2nd and third floor of a building into visual design studios and spent the next 9 Months creating a 50 min video called Dr devious and the Wisemen, VR Dance in cyberspace, I was DR Devious but no one knew, the only hint was the company, GJ productions.

That video sold 220,000 copies and set a world trend. Dr Devious was the coolest character in the world, and no one knew who he was.
