Kickass show last night! As we already mentioned a thousand times, Feedbacker and 5 more local bands (Bloodrush, Corecom, Muddy, The Flying Detachment and UPYR) took part in a benefit gig for a great guy named Mike Williams, vocal chord-ripper for NOLA legends EYEHATEGOD. No need for gibberish or big talk this time. People came and donated some money that the guys at Rawk’n’Roll zine & booking are sending towards Mike’s fundraiser. Hope we helped even a tiny bit! Get well, motherfucker!
The whole show was streamed online and you can watch it here:
Mike IX Williams and EYEHATEGOD always had a special place in my heart. Their music and message have touched me in a way that’s almost life-changing.
If we are inhabiting the same planet, you already know that Mike is battling some really serious health issues right now, leading him to hospitalization and urgent liver transplant. Luckily he got the operation and is now recovering. With him being an independent musician, this led to increased health expenses impossible for an underground artist to cover.
Long story short: these top notch guys from Rawk’n’Roll (pretty much the only Bulgarian stoner-sludge-doom-psych-whatever webzine, online since 2004) have invited us and a couple of the most fascinating heavy rock’n’roll bands in Sofia to gather forces and do a benefit show for Mike.
We have to give it to Rawk’n’Roll – they’re the people who brought EHG here in Sofia back in 2015. Not only that, but they let me take part in all this and open up for fucking EYEHATEGOD w/my solo drone noise outfit krāllār, along with Them Frequencies & UPYR. I’m forever thankful for that opportunity!
So here it is: Feedbacker‘s doing a local benefit show with awesome bands including Bloodrush, Corecom, Muddy, The Flying Detachment and UPYR.
All of the income from that gig will be transferred to Mike IX Williams’ account. Make sure to follow the event in Facebook and do come over if you can!
