In recent years, late-1970s L.A. punks The Flesh Eaters reunited out of the blue for a few shows that emphasized what a powerfully dark and compulsive live force they can be. With the release of a sarcastically titled new album, I Used to Be Pretty, lead howler/mastermind Chris D. has pulled off an even more impressive carny trick — avoiding the nostalgic pitfalls of other reunions by putting out a fulsomely satisfying mix of unusual covers and strong original material. Mr. D. applies his morbidly mournful vocals to remakes of classics by The Sonics, The Gun Club and Peter Green–era Fleetwood Mac, and such sprawling, psychedelicized tracks as jazzy-blues freakout “The Youngest Profession” and the 13-minute incantation “Ghost Cave Lament” evoke the febrile intensity of the early Flesh Eaters. Seattle grunge stalwarts Mudhoney give the bill a double shot of raw power. Also at the Echoplex, Saturday, Jan. 19.
