About the Artist

Who Are The Electric Eels? Quite simply, The Electric Eels are, historically, one of the most important bands ever!!! Their career may have lasted barely two years, they may have only played live half a dozen times, they may have had no records released during their chaotic existence, but the legacy they left provided considerable inspiration for many a tortured and twisted soul. Notable fans include Gibby Haines, Jon Spencer, Thurston Moore and Michael Gira. <P>Give Me A History Lesson Giganto Formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1972, The Electric Eels were a collection of strong individual personalities committed to making subversive and challenging music <P>After playing to an audience for the first time, John and Dave were arrested for being drunk & disorderly. Still in their stage clothes; John was wearing a coat covered in safety pins and Dave covered was in rat traps. The police nicknamed them 'Ratman and Bobbin' and beat up John, breaking his arm. He arrived at the next gig with wrenches tied to his arms with gaffer tape and bought his new instrument, a sheet of metal to be played with a sledgehammer. Mid-set the bar owner pulled the plug. <P>Another show was advertised as a'Special Extermination Night'. Some of the highlights were Dave, now playing clarinet, trying to start a gas-powered lawn mower and singing emotional versions of TV theme songs. John won a fight with a member of the audience and all the gear was impounded to pay for the damage. The last Eels gig was outdoors at the campus of Case-Western Reserve University and broadcast live. The gig ended in more violence and the Electric Eels were no more. <P>Police Records Show The Line-Up For This CD Was John Morton (Guitar), Dave McManus (Vocals, clarinet), Brian MacMahon (Guitar), Nick Knox (Drums). Was There Life After Death? Of course, In 1979 John Savage persuaded Rough Trade to release the 'Agitated' 7" and two years later Mustard released the 'Spin-Age Blasters' 7". Nick Knox joined The Cramps; John and Dave joined The Styrene-Money band with soon to be Pere Ubu and Dead Boys members and also played in the superb X-X. Dave formed several bands, most noticeably The Cool Marriage Councillors. <P>God Says Fuck You This CD contains 22 tracks including at least three beasts unleashed for the first time. The sleeve features new John Morton artwork and Michael J. Weldon of Psychotronic Magazine wrote the sleeve notes. Take heed, nothing, but nothing, will prepare you for what you are about to hear.

When I first heard The Electric Eels their sound encapsulated the essence and spirit of punk rock and some of this stuff goes way back to '72! It's not punk as in the 60s garage stuff compiled on the Nuggets and Pebbles compilations, they sound like Stooges freaks who have barely learned 3 chords. The singer sounds utterly pissed off, like a snotty adolescent loosing an argument but won't concede defeat and decides being as infantile as possible is the way forward, I'm surprised you don't at some point hear him sing 'ner ner ne ner ner'. Some tracks are guitar and vocals only and they still sound powerful and complete. The only band that have any sonic similarities would be friends and neighbours 'Rocket From The Tombs', if you haven't heard Electric Eels think of Iggy's 'Metallic KO' but even more raw. When punk rock was explained to me many years ago I often felt let down by a lot of the bands, Electric Eels fit the bill perfectly, which is why I was surprised when I saw a band picture where they looked like homeless New York Dolls fans, but hey, their era was the early 70s. It wasn't just the music either, band members loved to behave with extreme, obnoxious behaviour including flirting with right wing imagery, riling their audience until a brawl started, playing gay in working men's drinking holes, nothing was sacred except Iggy and free jazz. Their gloriously, short 'career' ended in debt, huge ill will and true to the punk blueprint, total failure, they barely made it to a recording studio never mind release a record. I suspect they would have been forgotten had author Jon Savage not introduced us to the brilliant track 'Agitated', released in the late 70's.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
The Electric Eels came out of the same Cleveland milieu as Pere Ubu during the early / mid 70s. Specialising in a mutated, gonzoid pre- punk noise they were too abrasive and ahead of their time to make any commercial progress. Indeed, they never even saw the inside of a recording studio; all these cuts were made in the band's rehearsal room. Their few live dates usually ended in fights and members regularly quit after intra- band violence. All this would be irrelevant if the Eels were not capable of quite startling music. Armed only with a few chords, a love of free jazz and a hatred of just about everything else they made a vicious, spiteful noise leavened with a dark sense of humour. This is the sound of adolescence writ large, and none the worse for it. Hugely influential on the likes of Pussy Galore, if you need a comparison point, this CD is essential for anyone interested in the pre- history of punk, the detritus of consumer society or hearing the voluntarily dispossessed rail against the world. Best cuts;'Agitated' 'Cyclotron' and 'Giganto'. Best title; 'You're Full of Shit'.

BUY THIS! 3 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Raw, hypnotic, agitated, venomous, barely-hanging-on-to-reality music. Makes giggling kids and poseurs out of 99% of the punk rock that followed. A genuinely tormented work of genius.

Swim Swim Swim like the Tuna Fish 25 Jan 2000
By thejunglecat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Ya know what I think, I think the whole world stinks, and I don't need no shrink, I just hate it..." says it all. From the scrrreeching and sawing guitars to the eerie clarinet blasts to the mind-bending words of delusion, the electric eels will make you see a new world. And you won't want to come back.
