Biography

The Flesh Eaters are an American band from Los Angeles, California who were initially active from 1977 to 1983, before reforming in the early ’90s. This “ voodoo ” band was formed by lead singer and L.A. punk poet Chris Desjardins (better known as Chris D.). The Flesh Eaters mixed also incorporated traces of and with a morbidity, B-movie horror, and sun drenched California boredom in a frenzied, hot-rodded doom-and-gloom squall of obfuscating poetry. Writer R. Meltzer dubbed the band “blabbermouth lockjaw of the soul.”

The Flesh Eaters changed lineups continually, and musicians counted previously among their ranks include Stan Ridgway (Wall of Voodoo), Tito Larriva (the Plugz), John Doe (X), DJ Bonebrake (X), Dave Alvin (The Blasters), Bill Bateman (The Blasters) and Steve Berlin (The Blasters, Los Lobos), among others. The band broke up in 1983 after four albums, but reformed sporadically throughout the 1990s and 2000s.
