Get Sucked In
The first Eejit tape Get Sucked In is out now. First batch has sold out pretty
quickly. If you want a copy, get in touch and we'll see if we should
get another batch done.
We just finished recording four songs on high-quality 8-track tape and
digitally mastered to DAT. We did Food, Hey Guys Eatin Pizza,
Fields of Athenry, and Waxies Dargle. Great fun in the
studio, recording and mixing and then playing around with
effects... Engineered and Produced by the amazing Dave of the Music Co-op!
To Chiv for drumming for us for 15 months, Jan 95 to March 96
To Rob for playing accoustic guitar Jan 95 to Sep 95
To Dunc, Tim, Matt for singing, shouting,
