The Eat- Live At The Polish American Club LP ~REISSUE!
The Eat- Live At The Polish American Club LP. Compared to many of their “KBD classic” peers, The Eat has a relatively solid track record with their releases. Not only is “Communist Radio” an all-time mix tape/cover band staple, but its follow-ups, “God Punishes” EP, “Scattered Wahoo Action” cassette and even their much later “Hialeah” EP from ‘96, are all full of great songs. Their bar-band with a punk attitude aesthetic is captured candidly on this recording from 1981. In between songs, the band converses with the audience with bits of Florida sports current events, pleads them to keep the venue clean, and engages in some Lee Ving-lite taunting. The 16-song set list is picked from their releases, plus covers of “L.A. Woman,” “Wooly Bully,” Zappa, and a couple more along those lines. The sound is a little better than the average Rave-Up release, and the record is packed in a nice paste-on sleeve with a flyer insert, a couple of baseball cards, and is HAND NUMBERED OUT OF 500 COPIES!
