Seth Sutton and his band of Memphis-bred flame-broiled¬†punk rockers must be putting some extra hot sauce on their barbecued brisket. ¬†Since their raucous beginnings in 2009, they’ve put out¬†5 full-lengths, over a dozen 7”s, numerous cassettes and compilations and they ain’t showing signs of slowing down anytime soon. ¬†They’re also record label sluts, saddling up with almost every garage rock label under the sun (Goner Records, Goodbye Boozy, Nashville’s Dead, Tic Tac Totally!, and many many more), and now Castle Face Records wants a piece.
Useless Eaters fashion a lofi garage surf n turf sandwich¬†smothered in spicy feedback and¬†mouth-watering riffs. ¬†Their versatility would make them perfect companions in a 60s Nuggets collection, an early 80s punk comp and especially in our recent wave of killer garage psych punk favorites like Jay Reatard, Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees.
My only gripe? If you buy one Useless Eaters album, you’re going to want to have them all. ¬†You’ve been warned.
Limited edition of Glass Half Full Vinyl is half white, half ultra clear and is only available here and from the band.
