EATER – “”Thinkin’ Of The USA”
We keep pumping out more vinyl for the masses as you can see from this week’s RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog!!
EATER: from North London, was one of the founding punk rock bands from the class of 1976. Comprised of Andy Blade, Brian Chevette, Ian Woodcock and Dee Generate they were only teenagers when they formed the band. Eater would go on to release 4 singles, a Live Ep and Album from 1976 to 1980 before calling it a day. These 2 songs on this 7” are rerecording’s of EATER’S 2nd 7” that was released in 1977. This was done to commemorate the 40 anniversary of their most popular single, out now on VIOLATED RECORDS!!!!

SPIRITS’ latest album “Unrest” is comprised of 12 songs that collectively push the sonic boundaries of the band outwards in numerous directions while still maintaining a strong foothold on their melodic punk-hardcore roots. Hard hitting, no-nonsense, lean punk/hardcore songs that take you on a roller coaster ride of tempos, emotions, and lyrical themes. STATE OF MIND RECORDINGS worked with them to create a sick package, where the die cut jacket acts as a frame for the one of the 4 different portraits included. Hit up STATE OF MIND for your copy or check out SPIRITS on a mini east coast tour in September.
