Today Noisey hurls forth the third episode of NOLA: Life, Death And Heavy Blues From The Bayou, a seven-part series exploring the people and culture that helped spawn bands like Down, Eyehategod, Crowbar, Acid Bath and so many others.
Following last week’s edition, where Mike IX Williams discussed finding kindred spirits in Jimmy Bower and Joey LaCaze and creating a band “that’s like Sabbath, but a punk band” with Eyehategod, today’s segment finds the Noisey team on a fishing trip with Bower. Here Bower discusses his time with Shell Shock, the origins of Eyehategod and his place in the sound of New Orleans, including where he thinks the roots of the music lie.
Watch episode three, now playing at THIS LOCATION. “Gank it.”
