With the reissue of the 7", it would seem foolish not to resolicit this: as well as the vinyl being repressed, cd being restocked, this the time to reappraise this seminal band! 23 tracks on the cd, and 27 on the lp tracks have never been on vinyl before, ever. only original tapes were used in this compilation (not true of "god says fuck you" or "their organic majesty's..."). the vinyl issue was edited and mastered entirely in the analog domain, is pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl and housed in a full color gatefold jacket. cover art by lead guitarist john morton. both formats include the lyrics plus liner notes by john morton, brian mcmahon and paul marotta. while bto and grand funk ruled the airwaves, the electric eels confronted the cities of cleveland and columbus, ohio with clothing held together with rat traps and safety pins, marshalls covered in fiberglas, a lawnmower, and songs like "you're full of shit." the eels' music was unabashedly confrontational, angry, absurd, desperate, self-destructive and very ahead of its time. they played abrasive three chord rock songs, songs of utter despair as well as free improvisations. they were beaten by police, each other and themselves. this is pretty much an essential collection, kicking off with agitated!!
