Shiteater / Clit Eastwood – Shit Clit Split (Blackened Death)

Here’s a split from both sides of the pond. Both bands contribute 8 tracks each, including a cover version…. And don’t let the band names put you off, this is much more accessible than you could imagine.

Starting in the UK with band number 503 from the serial band creator Richard Weeks, Shiteater, bar some foul shit plopping effects during the song Rectal, (I don’t want to know if he recorded himself), are quite a pleasant entity.

It’s mainly Death Metal, with a few added ingredients, like a Doomy intro or the odd segment of blasts. And as with most of Mr Weeks’ bands, there’s a fair amount of melody, which is a bit of a surprise considering the band name and the main subject matter, which is shit, in case you hadn’t twigged.

Rounding off the 1st half of the split is a cover of the shitty Hall and Oates song, Maneater, which thankfully, sounds nothing like the crappy original

Based in Austin Texas, the wonderfully named Clit Eastwood, bang out their quota in double quick time, with only 2 of their 8 songs making it over the minute mark… probably in keeping with their (collective) sexual prowess, maybe?

And the noise they produce is very much what you’d expect after seeing their band name… sort of Punk meets Grind with added violence and a hint of Hardcore… and it’s good fun and catchy too….

Their song titles are bit on the weird side, bar the funny as hell, The Good, The Bad, and The Moist… and they round off their contribution with a cool (possibly drunken) cover of the Ramones classic, We’re A Happy Family, just titled Happy Family here.

And there you have it. Two contrasting styles, but they work well together and I’d be happy to hear more of the same in the future.
