Eat Lights Become Lights were formed in London in the winter of 2007 by Neil Rudd. Launched with a deep fondness for the legendary Kraut / Kosmische scene of the 1970s, and evoking the eternally classic, motorik groove of Neu!, Kraftwerk and Can et al. The sound he creates however is very much his own; an ever-changing synthetic landscape of harmony and melody, feedback & drones, played against that driving motorik beat. With the release of the debut single 'They Transmit' in May 2008, ELBL quickly gained critical praise from the likes of the NME, and record of the week slots from such respected outlets such as Piccadilly Records in Manchester and Leeds‘ Norman Records. The second single ‘Klustered’ was released in April 2009. A third single ‘Test Drive’ arrived in February 2011 also on The GPS and sold out in 24hrs- lovingly packaged not only as a square (no, really!) green vinyl 7” but featuring an extraordinary B side remix from the legendary Silver Apples. Gigging heavily since their conception, ELBL have steadily built up a reputation as a formidable live act, having played numerous high-profile shows, including a sold-out tour with Silver Apples in addition to being championed by Stuart Maconie on BBC Radio 6 Music’s Freak Zone, Gideon Coe and Andy Weatherall on BBC Radio 6 mix. 'Heavy Electrics' is the follow up to the debut album 'Autopia', heavily lauded upon release by a number of shows including those referred to above on 6music, not to mention widespread acclaim in monthlies such as Uncut, Mojo, Q, The Quietus amongst others. ELBL will be playing shows in and around the UK from September onwards in support of ‘Heavy Electrics‘ and in the meantime, Neil will once again undertake guitar responsibilities for Damo Suzuki as part of his backing band later in the year- a recurring role totalling 6 occasions now! …not to mention a collaboration with Simeon of The Silver Apples which is also mooted for later in the year. Following the success of not only the ‘Test Drive’ 45 but also an incredible remix for GPS label mates The See See on 45, the band return to the label for their second full length here and is presented in typically elaborate GPS style - this one coming as a tri-coloured black, white and clear disc- just beautiful and in a limited edition pressing of 500 copies. Not expected to hang around long so no snoozing now…
