This UK punk rock band formed in 1976 while the band members were still at school. Comprising Andy Blade (vocals), Dee Generate (drums), Brian Chevette (guitar) and Ian Woodcock (bass), they made their vinyl debut with ‘15’ (a bastardized version of Alice Cooper’s ‘Eighteen’), on The Roxy, London W.C.2. compilation, recorded during the spring of 1977. With equipment purchased from Woolworths, they were picked up by The Label, which released five singles including ‘Outside View’ and ‘Lock It Up’, with the latter featuring a dire version of T. Rex’s ‘Jeepster’ on the b-side. An album followed later the same year, but it only served to further highlight the band’s obvious musical limitations. For all that, Eater are fondly remembered by many for being the epitome of punk’s original ‘get up and go’ ethos.
