A deluxe reissue of the seminal, long out-of-print debut release by '70s L.A. punk icons, The FLESH EATERS- featuring 10 bonus tracks & deluxe artwork! From BYRON COLEY'S Liner Notes: "Of all the great bands that the L.A. underground produced in the 70s, none were more corrosively poetic, more explosively visionary than the Germs and The Flesh Eaters. The major early recordings of the Flesh Eaters have been unavailable for many years; a cultural wrong finally being righted by this excellent package. The lyrics are bleeding collages of B-movie dementia, Mexican Catholicism & Dionysian punk-spurt poetics. The vocals are powerful cat-scratched patterns of night-ripping fear, huge bursts of raunch-vomit, and cascades of pure and toxic love. Just as The Birthday Party took basic punk dynamics into new corridors of rhythmic/dynamic gloom, so do the Flesh Eaters. This is the meat that lies at the beginning of the Flesh Eaters' trail. Lap at its essence. Revel in its power. And rejoice!
