Crust - Food Eater



Label: Unreleased
Year: 1997

I guess technically you could say that in 1999 Food Eater was self-released by the band in digital form, but it was recorded in 1997, but Trance Syndicate wasn't interested or able to release it, so the band sat on it. After what they considered a lackluster performance at SXSW in 1997, the band closed up shop, and Food Eater languished further.
In the canon of Crust, this one might skew a little odd as it's focus shifts from trucker hymns, to traditional country numbers, to sludged out thud rock, to Tejano polkas, to heavy metal sci-fi movie themes, it's really here, there, and everywhere (weird). If you like Crust...well...there's a lot of ways I could end that sentence, aren't there?

Jesus Christ, no song by any other band has scared me half as much as either SACK LUNCH or HOW ABOUT YOU. Dark, scary, rock giants, but honestly man I've never been able to get into Food Eater. Oh well, their hits could make up for a million misses.
