Eat Static is a space techno group formed in 1989 by Joie and Merv,  but also includes Steve Everret on some releases. The band originally formed around the Club Dog scene in London, spinning interesting techno between acts, but in the recent years opened for internal linkOzric Tentacles and developed quite a large following. The Eat Static live experience is not to be missed, as the internal linkpsychedelic images common at the Ozrics show continue here, but with that technologically driven bass beat and some extra spacey keyboard samples thrown in.   Eat Static--Bath based Ozric Tentacles off-shoot formed in 1989, more renowned for utilising their layered techno collages into powerful turbo-boosted, internal linksci-fi internal linkdance scripts and tuning them up into internal linkintense live performances, the area in which they prefer to display them. The spontaneous element that fuels their productions has been captured on three singles and an albums _Abduction_ and _Implant_-  Planet Dog.

    _Transmissions From The Planet Dog_ compilation CDx2atomjacked inventory cache on Planet Dog (1995) liner notes:
    Eat Static - Watchers of the sky and interpreters of internal linkalien knowledge.  Originated in 1989 as a side project for internal linkOzric Tentacles    internal linkdrummer Merv and keyboard player Joie, Eat Static were one of England's first groups to explore the sounds of energy-internal linkintensified trance and internal linkdub-influenced techno, through releases on their own label Alien Records as well as at their multitude of live performances at England's free festivals, Megadog events, and as opening act for the Ozrics.  In March of 1993, Eat Static signed to Planet Dog and released their debut album "Abduction", which reached number one in the indie charts;  last year's follow-up _Implant_ went on to do the same.  Merv & Joie have left their posts in the Ozrics to concentrate on Eat Static full time, to develop their unique internal linkfusion of psychedelic complexities, incessant techno internal linktrance    internal linkgrooves, & outerspacy sound snippets.  The cross section of their material here (tracks from both "Abduction" and "Implant") demonstrate their amazing ability to co-mingle dub heavy rhythms, soaring trance melodies, tripped-out atmospheric soundscapes, and utterly energetic alien internal linkdance feasts: extraterrestrial internal linkcontact is a theme that permeates their musical output, & the alien influence internal linkbubbles to the surface in many passages.  Deejays frequently transmit their recorded signals on dancefloors around the world, giving their music many opportunities to influence humans into internal linkmass, frenetic displays of absolutely tremulous body movement.
