Sick Llama is Heath Moreland from Michigan. He flings Fag Tapes.

"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."
- John Olson

"No one sounds like Heath--almost feel like he's managed to grab that whole basement aesthetic and take it into some twisted, psyched out land, welcome to the stone zone style."
- Henry Smith (Ear Conditioned Nightmare)

"I mean it's electronics, tape hiss, and ....?????? Heath really doesn't get any better or more refined, just....... stranger and 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."
- John Olson

Moreland also decays, twists and distorts ad nausea in project called Slither. They describe themselves as follows: Slither is the brutal collaboration of Chris Pottinger (Cotton Museum) and Heath Moreland. Both reside in the Metro-Detroit area and both conjure sonic demons using horns, electronics and effects.
