Viva L'American Death Ray Music began in 1999 as "American Death Ray," the brainchild of Memphis garage scene stalwart Nicholas Ray. Since then, the project has twisted, turned and head-tripped nominally, to its current moniker, and sonically, from Velvets-influenced jams into an amalgam of truly exploratory punk, no wave, electronic and psychedelic rock music. This live 7" will be their first music since their 2013 single, a 7" split released by Memphis big wigs Goner Records. The tracks featured are "The Painter" and "Falling," both previously unreleased! A highlight is during the A-side, whose repetitive mantra "I am the painter, not the paint," channels a damaged, American Mark E. Smith, definitely for fans of his work. The B-side showcases what could be an outtake from Alex Chilton's addled masterpiece Like Flies on Sherbet, a barroom song if there ever was one.
