USELESS EATERS: Self-titled: 7”EP

Really bummed I missed this band when they recently played a slew of shows here in the Bay. I outright fucked up because I really love this EP. A Side features “Desperate Living,” which kicks off all super garagey, oozing ‘70s punk swagger with a weird Devo-ish edge—something about the keyboard and snappy, succinct vocals. B Side’s “Dungeon” has a killer off-kilter guitar solo— industrialized and distorted—just fucking awesome. Influences? Buzzcocks, Jay Reatard, and Ty Segall weigh heavy here. Ain’t nothing useless about this EP.
