V/A - For The Sick - A Tribute To Eyehategod

Label: Emetic
Year: 2007

Who DOESN'T love Eyehategod? (rhetorical question bro, cause everybody loves Eyehategod).
My two personal favorite Eyehategod memories are as follows:
Memory One - Eyehategod playing the Scrap Bar in Atlanta in 1995(?) with Anal Cunt and Sourvein, to a handful of people, and most interestingly, some stragglers from off the street. The mic soundcheck was essentially Mike Williams repeating the bristle-inducing "nigger, nigger...nigger" over and over again until the levels were correct (not politically correct, mind you).
Memory Two - Eyehategod playing the Che CafĂ© in San Diego in 2000 with 16 and Suplex, and Mike Williams spending the time between each and every song berating the crowd as "California faggots", "pussies", and the like. Which, to me was humorous enough, but the real punchline was at the end of their set when he then inquires, "Who here can put us up tonight? Who here wants to smoke out Eyehategod and give us a place to stay?". I don't think any of the California faggot pussies in attendance stepped up to offer lodging.
