The Eat – Scattered Wahoo Action Cassette

Haven´t compared the original tape to the recent vinyl reissue. I just hope this sounds a bit more thrilling. It´s The Eat. And it´s a damngood tape that should´ve been a semi classic if it was released on vinyl back in ´82. Did they ever try to get any labels to release it? 14 tracks and 12 of them going from really good to great. Imagine they had a pretty tuff period here as HC was about to take over and all. But fuck HC let´s punk!

    I have never really liked this band. I have tried, but they just seem to fall short. Thanks for sharing.

    This is brilliant stuff. I’m not sure why but it sort of reminds me of the Young Canadians.

    Hey all- thanks for posting this tape- it is nice to upgrade from my lesser quality “tape of a tape of a…” from the olden days of cassette tape trading. One of these days I’ll update my blog, too much shit going on lately- new job, etc. I have like 5 pending blog posts in my head, I just need to put them into novel-length format (ha ha)

  10. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    New job Tony? So you’re no longer a punk business manager?

    REALLY looking forward to some new posts from ya :)!

    i did compare the tracks on this to the it’s not the eat tracks. i’m glad i found this first. the tracks on it’s not the eat are too clean. i think the tape his it actually needed for this band. it just makes it sound totally fucking amazing. so now i have the who output by those nuys. it’s not the eat is missing th slow cathlic love which is a damn shame. thanks for all the good music peter.

    I was searchin on the net for this one and where Google has sent me? On the KBD blog, of course!! :D Hadn’t ever noticed before that you had posted this little gem, Pete. Well… Better late than never!! This is a great band, arguably the best that the sunshine state has ever produced and this tape makes no exception: fantastic melodic punk with a surfy edge. Belated thanks!! ;)

  15. Thanks for supporting The Eat all these years! Alternative Tentacles has reissued these songs as part of a band authorized release. Please support the band by substituting for the existing download links. For a promo track contact Dominic Davi at Thanks very much!
