Biography

There are at least 3 bands sharing the name The Eyes.

1) In 1965 and 1966, the Eyes released a clutch of singles that stand up to the Who’s work from the same era in their blend of extremely innovative guitar feedback/distortion and anthemic mod songwriting. “When the Night Falls,” “The Immediate Pleasure,” “I’m Rowed Out,” “You’re Too Much,” and the dry “My Generation” satire “My Degeneration” are revered highly by British Invasion collectors. The bursts of electronic mayhem were quite advanced for the time, though like the Who they had hooks and harmonies to counterpoint the madness. They weren’t as memorable as the Who and didn’t approach commercial success. After a much softer fourth single and an ill-conceived album of Rolling Stones covers (recorded under the name the Pupils), the group disbanded. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

2) Another “The Eyes” was a late 1970’s Southern California punk group featured on the renowned Dangerhouse Records. Their lineup included Joe Ramirez; vocals, rhythm guitar; Charlotte Caffey (Pre Go-Gos); bass, vocals; and D.J. ‘Don’ Bonebrake (Pre-X) on drums. They are perhaps best remembered for their single “Disneyland”.

3) The Eyes is also a spanish metal band based in Barcelona, they play an intense death metal similar to At The Gates or In Flames. The Eyes have released an album called Pursuing the Misfortune on A Date With Elvis label. The band have been the spanish support act for High On Fire, Walls of Jericho and Suffocation among others.
