Nervous Eaters - 2002 - Eat This!

Hello again. I'm back. I've needed a few days to put all in order.
These guys are somewhat of a Boston legend. Probably best known for their killer 1970s singles "Just Head," which made reappearance on one of the earliest volumes of the Killed By Death series, and "Loretta." They made one ill-conceived and way overproduced album for Elektra in 1980, and then returned for a fantastically raw mini-LP for Ace Of Hearts called Hot Steel And Acid in the 80s. Since that time, those early singles have been covered by the Lazy Cowgirls, New Bomb Turks, Teengenerate, the Vikings and the RC5. Though they never set out to be a punk band, their sheer rawness had many peg them as so, although leader Steve Cataldo has always said it was the proto-punk of the Stooges And MC5, as well as a lot of early blues music (Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Paul Butterfield were faves), and early rock and roll (Elvis, Little Richard, etc), among others, that was fueling them. For this new release, recorded over the last couple of years by Cataldo and various cronies including Eaters alumni Rich Bartlett (once in the Fools) and Allen 'Alpo' Paulino, (also in the Real Kids), Billy Loosigan and Jeff Erna of the Dropkick Murphies. This is a pretty solid collection of no-frills rock and roll on the raw side for sure. There's elements of powerpop, garage rock and punk throughout it all, and some killer guitar action.
