E.A.T.E.R. - Doomday Troops EP (Ernst) 1983
E.A.T.E.R stands for Ernst And The Edsholm Rebels
Ernst & the Edsholm Rebels was formed the autumn of 1982 in Kil in Värmland by Gröten – gu, Pelle – dr, Brännström – b and Hasse – vo. Before the recording of the E.P “Doomsday troops” Hasse was replaced by Micke – vo, the record was recorded in Asta Kask’s studio Kloakens Alternativa Anti Studio in Töreboda and was produced by Micke Blomqvist. The record was released the spring -83 and sold in 12 countries, among them U.S.A, where Jello Biafra (from Dead Kennedys/Alternative Tentacles) was distributed it. During 83-84 they played diligent on punkfestivals in Sweden, Denmark etc. The band contributed on lots of tapes and Really Fast vol 1 and represented Sweden on the ROIR tape “ World Class Punk” from New York. A 2:nd E.P was recorded “Abort the system” -84, but never released.
In 1985 the band disbanded, Pelle and Gröten was then playing in Product Assar for a short while.
E.A.T.E.R reunited autumn -85 by Gröten – gu, Micke – vo, Snacke – b and Jerker – dr but the reunion becomes short due to Jerker’s death (R.I.P), after a while of internal problems and movings to Australia the band heading for a European tour in Holland, Germany, Belgium, and a video recording in Bielefeld & live taking that became E.A.T.E.R’s last performance, dec -86
Great Swedish classic band, in the vein of Asta Kask, but much more raw and powerful.
Enjoy it !!!
