The album (sarcastically titled "The Album") that followed is uneven but spirited. "Lock It Up" (another choice 45), "Public Toys" "No More" and an improved version of "Outside View"'s B-side ("You") join hilariously trashy, sped-up covers of the Velvets' "Waiting for the Man" and "Sweet Jane," Bowie's "Queen Bitch" and Alice Cooper's "18"- renamed "15." Andy Blade's vocals are Lou Reed deadpan, Brian Chevette's guitar is raspy and simple, and Ian Woodcock's bass runs along with stunning velocity.
Eater continued to gain a loyal following and more recordings followed including the EP "Get Your Yo Yos Out" which was a four-song live outing which contains two numbers never released in studio form. By now the strain was beginning to take its toll on the youngsters and Dee Generate was the first casualty being replaced by Phil Rowland, who joined Slaughter and the Dogs when Eater split in '79.
