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 fanzine Slash 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 album’s 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
music’s powerful shifts.
From opener “Digging My Grave” (resembling a dieselcharged
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 and Funhouseera
Stooges swing, A Minute to Pray remains (according to
author / archivist Byron Coley) “the best rock record ever
recorded.”
This first-time vinyl reissue and long out-of-print CD
release 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.

Tracks:

1. Digging My Grave
2. Pray Til You Sweat
3. River of Fever
4. Satan?s Stomp
5. See You in the Boneyard

7. Cyrano De Berger?s Back
