Eyehategod at Europa (more by Samantha Marble)
The Gauntlet: Did you have any 'Spinal Tap' moments [in 2010]?If he has time, maybe you can sit Mike down and discuss Brian Eno when Eyehategod hits Europa on February 18th along with Misery Index, Magrudergrind, Strong Intention & Mutilation Rites. Ticket info is forthcoming. The show is one of a few dates scheduled for the New Orleans crew that includes an appearance at Hellfest in France.
Mike "IX" Williams of Eyehategod: Maybe only driving around the country in the shape of a crooked pentagram because of poor tour routing. Also we've played in a couple clubs on this last tour that were seemingly built for Spinal Tap only!
The Gauntlet: What were some of your favorite releases from 2010?
Mike "IX" Williams of Eyehategod: 2010 saw a new Killing Joke album and I been digging on that a ton. A few other records I like are the Crazy Spirit 7", new Autopsy, Sleepies, Triptykon album, Double Negative new one, Die Wasted cassette, Floor box set, everything on Housecore Records....
The Gauntlet: What's on your ipod?
Mike "IX" Williams of Eyehategod: Gawd, everything from Hawkwind, Talking Heads, Brian Eno and Theatre of Hate to State of Alert, Warhammer, The Spits, Zero Boys. It goes on forever....Saccharine Trust, Testors, Rolling Stones, Viletones, L.A. Stains, Deadbeats, David Allen Coe, Fuck-Ups, Jesu, The Lewd....
