"There are a lot of mugz you don't wanna know,: VD doctors, the Grim
Reaper, the inside of a Fed Ex body bag, ex-mates, cops, silence,
dentists, republicans, country music stars, ...list goes on and
on....THEN= there are mugz you just want to get some sunshine from-
you know who they are= just plain rad mugz, stokerz= and i gotta
say....the Michigan Crew has Sick Llama'z BACK.....Heath AKA Juice AKA
Fag Heath AKA Morellama= is just a ball of huge eyeballing
goodness..how can you be mad at him? We used to have heavy skate shred
sessions with the goofball and he would destroy the streetz, and still
be smiling at the end, never breaking a sweat. You want this dude on
your team. And you want the soundtrack to your boiling brain to be his
Born Again to Die. Its got this amazing kinda
arms-up-in-air-i-give-up-what-is -this-godamnn -sound style beaming
through it. Heath man....dude aint really gonna give any clues
back....cant count how many timez the crew has cornered the mug and
"Yo man....what the hell is going on inside "Live Birth"? Did you just
record cars under an overpass and slow it down?"
"....ha......that one...that's a weird one right?"
"Well,...tell us....the fuck?"
And repeat over the coarse of 120+ Fag Tapes, Heath's label AKA the
Pyramids of Michigan. He never has properly answered a sound question,
we all have our clues/ideas.. Probably wrong. Sick Llama holds the
rotten essence of Midwest Basement Mystery Mind Sound inside the
marrow of his weird skull, right behind the strawberry blond tuffs,
unblinking bug eyes, and scandi-molded mildew skin. Born Again to Die
is his debt, and any signs of progression are tossed out the windows
of Ham Studios. I mean its electronics, tape hiss, and ....??????
Heath really doesn't get any better or more refined, just.......
stranger AKA more strange. My man Connelly says every Fag Tape has at
least a 30% "hands off" factor, meaning, seems like Llama has a nice
mutant groove going on and then just jets for 10min, leaving the
machine motionless. If you can tell what the hell is going on inside
these grooves...bottle it and sell it, it would be ideal to have on
tap.......it could be like taking a skinny dip inside the caverns of a
black pool filled to the brim with soul-frying electricity waves. Born
Again To Die= maybe our kid's rat kids will COMPREHEND. Then maybe
they can attempt to decode FUNKY PANDEMONIUM...."

My only regret in life is not having been the 666th person to purchase this relentless acoustic assault, this veritable teriyaki glob of acoustic discomfort, this braised lump of musical mastication powerpotato
A fearless cult figure from New England's underground scene, Sawyer's no-fi experiments with everyday objects and body sounds are greatly rewarding to those who have the patience and curiosity to give them a chance. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 20, 2017
