Let's Eat!

Y'know for someone living here for over a decade I was pretty shocked to discover how significant a sludge scene good ol' Richmond, VA had. Bands like Cough, Captives and Gritter are turning their Eyehategod worship into some really fucking good music. In 2007 the three-piece Food finally got around to recording material they had written four years earlier - their one and only eponymous LP is a meaty slab of southern-tinged granite-rock stoner sludge with enough fuzz box and distortion to clear out the stragglers at your next house party. There's not a whole lot of info out there on the band - according to one press release "Like Haley's Comet, or a rotation of the earth, Food is only in full view once in a long while" but it seems like they're still around. Hopefully we'll hear from them again soon...
