"Raygun Gothic was a school of architecture composed of equal parts Art Deco aesthetic and Futurist ideal: gravity-defying supports, neon colors, and Saturn-like curves all screamed Progression and Flow. In the mid 20th century, it rose to prominence alongside the American Dream and told us about a Jetsonian Future: one day, all of our consumer desires would be expedited and all of our needs would be instantly satiated with commodity and technology. One day, we’d take pills for all our meals and watch 3-D TV while the robots took out the trash.
Amidst the social and political turmoil of the Schizophrenic 80s, this dream began to Oxidize and Decay. We learned how dangerous our plastics and processed foods actually were. We learned the extent to which the American Hegemony had instilled dystopia in the rest of the world. Meanwhile, subversive sounds flooded out of basements and scored a cynical cultural underbelly that seemed to say, 'I Knew All Along.'
Through abrasive but mechanical beats, synthetically-manipulated guitar, and sci-fi lyrics delivered by a schizoid plurality of voices, ronaldraygun seeks to provide a narrative for the deterioration of the American Dream. If music is architecture unfrozen, then ronaldraygun is the sound of Our Tomorrow That Never Was."
In other words:
"We play guitars."
