The Rattler Proxy - McReady's Blues

Recording info

The Rattler Proxy, a sonic duo from Athens, Greece, release their debut single featuring two original songs - "McReady's Blues" and "Mr. Sham" - along with a remix of the latter by Timothy J. Fairplay, one half of the Asphodells.

Drawing influences from the likes of Suicide and the dark and synth-heavy soundtrack work of John Carpenter, The Rattler Proxy explore the realm of urban alienation through intense and claustrophobic soundscapes. Often swapping their pulsating electronic crawl, for digital rockabilly-esque freak-outs, theirs is a world of back alleys and gang laden imagery, a rhythmic decent into a hellish, concrete landscape.

The title track is an epic noise tribute to John Carpenter's classic sci-fi thriller "The Thing". The b-side features synth stomper "Mr. Sham" while Timothy J. Fairplay transforms it into a zombie trance classic.

"McReady's Blues" is issued by new label Lurid Music. The 12" is hand-stenciled, hand-stamped and hand-numbered in a limited edition of 300 white & silver spray-painted record sleeves. Mastering by Marcoantonio Spaventi, pressing by MPO France. Please find one-minute samples and photos attached.

The release has already been making the rounds, having been featured on Tim Sweeney's Beats In Space radio show (3 June 2014), Ivan Smagghe's NTS radio show (29 April 2014) and Trevor Jackson's NTS radio show (22 July 2014).
