Now Shipping: ELECTRIC EELS December 05 2014
Cleveland's electric eels (all lower case in homage to poet e.e. cummings) is America's quintessential proto-punk band. As Jon Savage writes in the liner notes, "There is something heroic about the eels' isolation and uncompromising attitude: a fierceness that you can hear in these songs that still resonates in a different time and world."
Die Electric Eels collects their best material from 1975 including their classic Rough Trade single Agitated which blazed a trail for high-art, low-concept rock. Superior Viaduct also presents a first-time reissue of the group's second single, Spin Age Blasters / Bunnies, in a limited edition of 1,000 copies. Get the LP here and Get the 7-inch here.
