The Eaters are Laughing Gear, Obselite, Quiet Man and Tuck Pendleton. https://www.facebook.com/eatersmusic
Laughing Gear has loved hip hop since hearing Sugar Hill Gang and the Fat Boys. He’s written raps since age 15. He’s battled in Nuyorican Poets Café, NY and was featured in the award winning beatbox documentary; Breath Control. He has also directed and edited the bands videos to date.
Quiet Man joined Laughing Gear in their first band back in '90, although his influences include metal and electronica. He added instrumentals to his repertoire, initially mixing with a 4-track recorder, and now favours Cubase to engineer and masters all Eaters releases. As Watchmaker, he has released two electronic instrumental albums.
Tuck Pendleton joined and brought an eclectic taste to the table. He produces more sample driven music, like early 90’s hip hop – pulling from all styles of music and experimenting with speeds and bar timings. Along with Quiet Man, he produces Eaters’ vocal projects and has produced two instrumental albums.
Obsolite started rapping young and has supported various greats like Public Enemy. He is a regular poetry slammer and spoken word champion, giving the band even more stylistic scope. He joined Eaters in 2016 having previously fronted successful Scottish hip hop band, Penpushers.
This eclectic mix of individuals have released albums ranging wildly in style including funky beats and raps, instrumental electronica, Latin edged sample-based instrumentals and industrial beats with complex flows and sharp edges.
