EATER have issued a new video from their recently reissued debut album.
Originally released by the Finchley punks in 1977, The Album was fully remixed, remastered and rereleased under the new title Ant by Cleopatra Records last year.
The single 'Ann' is a new version of the album track 'Anne': "It should never have been released and was wasted on that record, plus I had always intended it without the ‘e’," says frontman Andy Blade. "Actually, it was going to be called ‘Ant’, until I was reminded that it isn’t a girl’s name.”
Blade has created a new Eater by hooking up with London glamsters Jo Jo & The Teeth, playing sold-out shows to audiences old and new, including a spot at last year's Rebellion.
“We got together by chance when I met some musicians at a gig,” Blade explains. "We chatted about music and got on. It turned out that they were already in a group, who are great and very different to Eater, but somehow the schizophrenic existence of two bands at once works. It might be the same people, but they are entirely different entities.”
Set for release on 30 March through Holy Dotage, 'Ann' is available to pre-save here.
A white vinyl edition, featuring the b-side 'Point Of View', will follow on 9 June. Pre-order here.
