The Flesh Eaters is the name behind one Chris Desjardins a.k.a. Chris D. Taking his stage name from a 1964 cult film, Chris D. wrote for legendary fanzine Slash in the late 70s and assembled the first of many Flesh Eaters lineups from heavyweights in the burgeoning L.A. punk scene. After releasing a ravenous EP and heart-ripping debut album, The Flesh Eaters unleashed their era-defining statement, 'A Minute To Pray A Second To Die'.
Originally released in 1981, 'A Minute To Pray' brings together the greatest band in American rock history: Dave Alvin (Blasters) on guitar, John Doe (X) on bass, Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) on sax, along with Bill Batemen (Blasters) and DJ Bonebrake (X) providing the albums trademark percussive backbone. Chris D. leads the group like a man possessed. Through a series of grotesque vignettes, his lyrical prowess and indelible growl stand toe-to-toe with the music's powerful shifts. From opener '"Digging My Grave' (resembling a diesel-charged Magic Band) to the gothic groove of 'Divine Horsemen,' each song is its own hairy beast. Inspired by African tribal music, 60s garage-rock churn and Funhouse-era Stooges swing, 'A Minute To Pray' remains (according to author / archivist Byron Coley) "the best rock record ever recorded."
This CD reissue has been carefully remastered and features liner notes by Coley. Without a doubt, The Flesh Eaters will hypnotize a new flock of listeners in this millennium.

Also available: A MINUTE TO PRAY A SECOND TO DIE (LP).
