The Useless Eaters- Daily Commute
Just like The Reatards took their basic formula of the Oblivians and put their own spin on it, the Useless Eaters are the next in the line of the string of Memphis bands. And just like the Oblivians to Reatards evolution, this next step also shakes off some of the blues tendencies of the previous generation, leaving behind refined three chord punk rock. I don't mean refined as in a British lady's tea party, either. There's a Buzzcocks feel to their leads and some of Seth Sutton's vocals. So, maybe it is in a British lady's tea party way. All this aside, their myspace lists this as their influences:
So, I think that clears up any possible confusion.
