Electric Eels
Accident / Wreck and Roll

Old show-you-how-its-done punks Electric Eels continue to get celebrated by HoZac with this 7", another scatterbrained piece of guitar abstraction nonsense with duel vocalists who can scarcely be heard behind the racket. It's the way it was ment to be, and on "Wreck and Roll" they even try their hand at this thing you call pop music.

Electric Eels
Spin Age Blasters / Bunnies

Straight-up punks Electric Eels had only released "Agitated" before they got around to releasing their sophomore effort, "Spin Age Blasters", which continued their irreverent discharge of coalescing guitars and jazzy, experimental diversions. Both tunes -- the A-side and its pal "Bunnies" -- sound defiantly of-their-time punk rock, but have tinges of any genre that's ever been fucked up.

Die Electric Eels

Die Electrophorus Electricus. Terrifying looking bunch of "proto-punk" dudes from Cleveland, Ohio circa early to mid seventies. These guys are the stuff of legend having only rolled out five live performances in their entire life whilst in turn upsetting everyone with their fuck-you attitude to both audiences and each other. Basically they were one of the first bands to combine filthy, feral garage rock with free jazz and avant-garde influences so, undoubtedly, they are still a thrilling and chaotic proposition. Bristling with urgency and menace, their influence knows NO bounds. Aggressive and uncompromising stuff from these pugnacious visionaries.

Electric Eels
Jaguwar Ride / Splittery Splat

This is still hard to even fathom, let alone anywhere near realistic, but HoZac Archival Records is proud to present a little piece of history for you here, which, if you are still unexposed, will knock your "punk clock" back a few years, resetting your concept of what punk evolved from, where punk germinated from, and how unhinged the Midwest (Ohio in particular) was in comparison to the East & West Coasts in the days before the Ramones & Sex Pistols records littered the land. The Cleveland-based (and formerly Columbus) electric eels were unrivaled in terms of sonic mayhem for 1974/1975, especially for the Midwest, where extremities in music were very much unwelcome and were not given the opportunities that the art scenes of the coasts got to foster. Despite the fact that this band was the starting point for not only Nick Nox, later of THE CRAMPS, it must be understood that this was not composed, blues-based Stooges-style grunt, gorgeous VU-type noise, glammy Alice Cooper-style grime, or high-frequency bombast like the MC5.
