Review

Review Text The Beast 999 Presents the Electric Eels in Their Organic Majesty's Request collects both released and unreleased material from Cleveland pre-punkers the Electric Eels. This cult band whose declared fans include Thurston Moore and Jon Spencer only released a handful of singles during their short existence (1972-1974). Therefore, this CD is the first comprehensive set documenting the band. Sound quality goes from average to poor, but it often fits the Electric Eels' garage rock energy. Nonsense lyrics, crude punk revolt, and avant-gardist tendencies (singer Dave McManus' clarinet playing, some syncopated beats, an inclination to noise and free improvisation) point as much toward the Sex Pistols as early Pere Ubu, Sonic Youth, and the Scissor Girls. Members of the Electric Eels would later join Pere Ubu, the Styrenes, the Dead Boys, and the Cramps, and elements of all of these bands' sounds can be found in these crude recordings. ~ François Couture
