From the inception of the Birdmen of Alcatraz, to the pre-super stardom scribble jam battles against greats such as Eminem, to the decade long takeover of the Indianapolis Hip-Hop scene by The Mudkids, to the present day where the name Rusty Redenbacher can be heard on WTLC, seen on IMC TV, and deciphered in blog and viral posts felt around the world, the founding member of The Mudkids, Lazarus, and Tornado Alley #ATFU brings you “The Tinkerer”.
Whether it be the thousands of albums Rusty has sold as the head of The Mudkids, the fan admiration and communal support that constantly has voted him as Indy’s Top Artist, the large quantity of free music Rusty had given away to the masses while introducing his #ATFU movement or the vast experiences gained while performing alongside legends including the Wu-Tang Clan, The Roots, Dead Prez, Blackalicious, Atmosphere, and more, one thing that is for certain, legions of Hip-Hop, Rock, Funk, Reggae, and Dubstep fans alike are ready to embrace “The Tinkerer”.
While deeply rooted in the classic horror culture of yesteryear, “The Tinkerer”and its 18 tracks takes the listener on a journey through the laboratory of sound and spirit known as the Iron Man Monster Factory as front man Rusty Redenbacher aka The Tinkerer utilizes a unique blend of hip-hop turntabilism and intricate cross-genre instrumentation in creating the productions behind every track featured on the album. Front man Rusty Redenbacher provided in a recent interview, “I just wanted to make an album that I thought was interesting. I was free to do whatever I wanted and I did. I had a great time making 'The Tinkerer' and I look forward to seeing how people react to it. It's for science, man.”
