Eat The Friek – And Eye Float Bye

Ploom is the band’s contribution to the facets of always being tired, your neighbour growing out his hair, memory loss and a killing in your local village. Following on from their 2020 single ‘Muttrip’, the band creep back into the unique sound that they’ve been developing over the past two years with new and interesting twists.

Fuzzy guitar riffs, dirty bass tones and thumping drums come together in this outbreak of noise that is set to be the bands best release to date. Eat The Friek worked with Robbie Wilson of The Kundalini Genie to record the tracks at Paul’s Halls in Cumbernauld.

The tracks were mixed and mastered by the amazing Jason Shaw.

Originating from Aberdeen, now residing in Glasgow, Eat The Friek have been on an unstoppable roll since the release of their 2019 EP ‘Heart of the Snail’.

Incessantly gigging around Scotland before being halted by Covid-19, the band found themselves playing alongside bands such as John (Times Two), The Psychotic Monks and The Wood Burning Savages.

Just before lockdown the band released their single ‘Muttrip’ which coincided with a sold-out release show at Henry’s Cellar Bar in Edinburgh. Eat The Friek have kept themselves busy over 2020 with the recording of ‘Ploom’ and are set to re-emerge from the dust of the pandemic with more energy than Scotland (or the rest of the world) has ever

Club Atletico is the result of the artist’s intimate research in the field of imprisonment. Inspired by the movies of Marco Bechis about the Argentine dictatorship, the EP translates the tragedy of the Dirty War onto the sonic perspective. The EP is named after one of the detention centres established by the Argentine dictatorial regime in order to torture political dissenters. 

Petrolio is a solo project started in 2015 by Enrico Cerrato. Over the past few years the artist released a number of singles, EPs and albums, touring all across Europe and sharing the stage with the likes of Lingua Ignota, Of the Wand & the Moon, Winterkälte, Uochi Toki, Bologna Violenta, Mai Mai Mai, and Pankow to name but a few. By 2018 the Piedmont-based artist already had a number of high-profile collaborations under his belt with the likes of Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten), Aidan Baker (Nadja), as well as many well-known artists from the Italian noise/industrial/experimental scene such as Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo (Almagest!, Blind Cave Salamander, Coypu, Larsen, XXL), Sigillum S, and Mai Mai Mai.
