“It's as if one of the biggest rock acts in the world has just landed, disguised. Its not just the music which is breathtaking and flawless, it's the energy, the spring, the communication with an increasingly hysterical audience. Being the hardest touring blues-based rock band in the UK has turned them into one of our finest. KKKKK” - Kerrang!
"The rock world can thank its lucky stars that there are bands like Rattlesnake Remedy" - Classic Rock
The band met whilst at school,
2006 saw the band recording its debut album, Magic Man. It was released in the UK and Ireland on 30 October on BEM Records and distributed by Universal Music.
The first single from the album, "Drag You Down", was released on 1 May 2006 and went straight into the Radio 1 UK Rock Charts at number four where it remained for over two months. This and other tracks appeared in Classic Rock, Player Magazine, and Metal Hammer.
Promotion of the single and new album began with the Drag You Down tour running through 2006.
The music video to the album's title track was released in October 2006. The band continued to tour throughout 2007, and released a re-mastered version of Magic Man, with bonus tracks, in Japan and Europe in November 2007.

In 2009, whilst recording their new studio album, the band announced that they would be changing the name to Caduga. They justified this change to their fans with a famous Picasso quote - "Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction." The band split in 2011 after wasting everyone's time.
There is an album which was released in 2003 called Rattlesnake Remedy which was probably self funded by the band.
