More Info:

"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 it's 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-sde showcases what could be an outtake from Alex Chilton's addled masterpiece 'Like Flies on Sherbet', a barroom song if there ever was one.
