Agitator Records has recently released Mother Eel's Loathes Dicks.
Presently there is no functional way to capture and distribute the complete, intense and disturbing experience of Mother Eel live... this is something the band thinks is a pleasingly, unpleasant representation.
Featuring 12 crushing works over 15 ear tearing tracks in 38 minutes, pieced together from three or so recordings made live in the venue, at the Lewisham Hotel, Sydney, 2011. Each recording comes with its own balance based on the location of the recording device.
Loathes Dicks boasts:
- vocals from Adrian Johnstone, the departed drummer who returned to do some vocals
- full booklet artwork with Mother Eel logo by ashcroft (dillonashcroft.com), ruined by semenstorm, notes by semenstorm, kenna, & cunningham
- a solid sense of loathing and disgust.
The track listing includes songs such as Sucking To Gain (Like Leeches), Tomarchyoo, Another Face For Beating & The Erection Of Pain
It is intended that this record be played loud. Experiencing the record at the 'minimum listening volume' will require you to significantly raise your voice if you were to try to conduct a conversation whilst listening. The ideal listening can be achieved at a volume you can feel, or on headphones, loud, curled up at the bottom of an inky black, damp & crawling, pit. with your eyes wide open.
Agitator Records also offers live bootlegs from bands like Ivan & The Backpackers, Dark Horse and Black Jesus as well as numerous other releases, including Mother Eel's back catalog. All for free, all to agitate.
