Title: A Hard Road to Follow
Format: CD
Label: Atavistic
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"A complete reissue of the long out-of-print masterpiece, and 4th release by 70s L.A. punk icons, The Flesh Eaters! Atavistics Hard Road to Followreissue also includes 5 bonus tracks & deluxe artwork in an oversize lyric booklet. Excerpted from Byron Coleys liner notes: Although it was not the last album to be issued under the name of The Flesh Eaters, Hard Road to Follow occupies a unique and special place in the bands pantheon. Released in 1983, by Chris Ds own Upsetter label, it was the fourth annual and final installment in the original sequence of Flesh Eaters albums. Hard Road was also the first to have the same line-up as its predecessor, forever came today. The bands fourth corrosive masterpiece in as many years, hard road is the best evidence of a band that had achieved a still unequaled massiveness of sound. For my money, this particular version of The Flesh Eaters represents the greatest rock band ever. They were it. Their live shows (of which I missed only two or three) were uniformly mind-melting, and while the records they left cannot convey everything that The Flesh Eaters were, they remain among the best albums ever." - Atavistic.

Title: A Minute to Pray A Second to Die
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"The Flesh Eaters is the name behind one Chris Desjardins a.k.a. Chris D. Taking his stage name from a 1964 cult film, Chris D. wrote for legendary fanzineSlash in the late 70s and assembled the first of many Flesh Eaters lineups from heavyweights in the burgeoning L.A. punk scene. After releasing a ravenous EP and heart-ripping debut album, The Flesh Eaters unleashed their era-defining statement,A Minute to Pray A Second to Die. Originally released in 1981, A Minute to Pray brings together the greatest band in American rock history: Dave Alvin (Blasters) on guitar, John Doe (X) on bass, Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) on sax, along with Bill Batemen (Blasters) and DJ Bonebrake (X) providing the albums trademark percussive backbone. Chris D. leads the group like a man possessed. Through a series of grotesque vignettes, his lyrical prowess and indelible growl stand toe-to-toe with the musics powerful shifts. From opener Digging My Grave (resembling a diesel-charged Magic Band) to the gothic groove of Divine Horsemen, each song is its own hairy beast. Inspired by African tribal music, 60s garage-rock churn andFunhouse-era Stooges swing, A Minute to Prayremains (according to author / archivist Byron Coley) the best rock record ever recorded. This first-time vinyl reissue has been carefully remastered and features liner notes by Coley. Without a doubt, The Flesh Eaters will hypnotize a new flock of listeners in this millennium." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: Forever Came Today
Format: CD
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"In the wake of the star-filled A Minute To Pray A Second To Die, The Flesh Eaters frontman Chris D. assembled a leaner, meaner band to deliver his next unbound vision. Forever Came Today, the groups third full-length album, was originally released on Ruby Records in 1982 and features Don Kirk on guitar, Robyn Jameson on bass, Chris Wahl on drums, Steve Berlin on sax and Chris D.s unmistakable voice. "My Life To Live" and "Shallow Water" are masterfully wrought punk tunes, reverberating with heart-wrenching vocals that turn on a dime from desperate whispers to blood-curdling screams. "Drag My Name In Mud" dives deeper into full-throttle rock demonology, bluesy primeval swagger and obsessive imagery, inspired in equal parts by William S. Burroughs and Edgar Allan Poe. This first-time reissue has been carefully remastered and comes with lyric sheet. Forever Came Today is the perfect introduction to The Flesh Eaters dark sense of humor and positively bleak form of rock n roll." - Superior Viaduct.
