The Skinny: Check out this song, “Two Bad Dudes”, from Antique Scream, a metal/blues/rock duo – Christopher Rutledge (guitar, vocals) and William Fees (drums) – who you need to check out if you’re at all into bands the likes of Mastodon, Neurosis, Clutch, or Queens of the Stone Age. Antique Scream have been touring non stop since 2007 and have harnessed Rutledge’s vocals and fuzzed out blues guitar playing to a finely honed edge.
Two Bad Dudes is the full-length that 2011’s The Chronicles of Dirty Dick expands upon. This release is designed to be listened to as a five part epic storyline, following the distorted adventures throughout an imaginary landscape of film vixens, along with the Burroughs and Leary influenced mindset, leading the listener inexorably through the side A. Side B begins with an orchestra piece of percussion which
leads the listener into the ketamine and morphine addled brain that Antique Scream fully expects you to be in during this release.
