Blue for the Red Sun always stood out to me from the Kyuss collection. I have some video footage of them playing Rockpalast in the 90's. Hard to look at that frontman, but they sounded good from what I could discern from the VHS. God...I was SOOO stoner rock five years ago...sometimes I miss Man's Ruin...some of it was crap (Tummler, I'm looking at you), but the first Queens album, the first Goatsnake, the first High on Fire...mwa!

Are you talking about Welcome To Sky Valley? Quite possibly my favorite rock album of all time. Kyuss seared my soul.


And eater, you're right, never could stomach Cocaine Rodeo. Okay, Nick, we get it. Enough already.


nah, blues for the red sun. i never checked out welcome to the sky valley, but i will have to now.

WHA?!


I love Tummler. "Early Man" is an outstanding stoner rock album. Meaner than mean guitar tone and a blast of a live band.

But I understand that the vocals turn some people off.

They're playing at Emissions from the Monolith this year, but alas, I'm going to miss it. Can't wait to see them live again.

"But I understand that the vocals turn some people off."

That was it for me.

I almost forgot IRON MONKEY! Now that was good shit...I still have that 10", and the promo split with Church of Misery whom I also have bootleg footage of. Salut, stoner rock brethren.

i love the first two albums. i lost interest in this band around "songs for the deaf" but still, they are very far from crap. plus josh homme seems like a very decent fellow.



i just feel like wrting how much l love the song "mexicola". and the line "point and shoot, i know just what you mean, in this world that's full of shit and gasoline, yeah baby".

Iron Monkey were a highly underrated band. They're still defunct, unfortunately, but a collection of rare live recordings was released recently.


eater, if you want to revisit that "classic" stoner rock sound, I highly recommend a band called Truckfighters. Those Scandinavians are still making it like they used to in the desert.

Plenty more where that came from. I'm still neck deep in the stoner rock goodness and its numerous off-shoots, tangents, and distant relatives.

And will reamin so. Jonny sadly passed away from a long term liver
complaint a few years ago. That said I always preferred Jim & Justins
other band, Hard To Swallow. Still one of my favourite live acts ever.
So good we called em Hard To Follow as playing after them was akin to
showing off your old chap immediately after Ron Jeremy had shown his.

Queens Of T... yawn

Boring and over rated.

I'm not sure why Iron Monkey got mentioned, but I saw Queens of the Stone Age at the London Garage with Iron Monkey years ago. Didn't like either of them but maybe I was in a bad mood.

Never been too fussed about QOTSA. I don't mind listening to them if someone plays them, but I've never been motivated to get any*. I wouldn't say they were crap though. So I won't.

* Ooh, correction. I've got the No-One Knows single. I love that song. And I really like The Sky is Falling off Songs For The Deaf.

I'd forgotten that guy from Iron Monkey passed. I remember reading about it now. That's a shame.

Never got the chance to see Hard To Swallow, sadly, but I know them by reputation.

One of the better bands around nowadays. I'd also take the opinion that they are better now that they've lost that screeching jackass on bass.

The last record was kinda boring, but they still are rather awesome. Great live, too... and bowel-meltingly loud.

i was a huge fan of kyuss when i was much younger, so obviously around the debut album of qotsa i was running around telling all my other silly friends how great they were. 'rated r' is a great pop album. one of the best i can think of actually.

around 'songs for the deaf' i started to get bored of them and then suddenly everyone knew who they were so i stopped bothering. one of those bands that exemplifies my bizarre habit of switching off of bands as soon as they make head-way in the mainstream. i suppose it is a case of over-exposure.

so NOT CRAP, with a waffle simply because i don't listen to them anymore.

I forgot about this band then someone sent me a fucking badass cover of ZZ Top's "Precious and Grace." Thank you, friend!

Hey! This is a very good band! Songs for the Deaf has many excellent moments and I like what I've heard of R. "No One Knows" is the best radio-song I've heard in years. Some pretty subtle, badass guitaring there.

The video for "Go With the Flow" is wonderfully sleazy too.

not crap but their cds have sooooo much compression and some digital clipping as well, much like the recent rick rubin releases.

In this new millenium, (SP?), QUOTSA has been an unanticipated gem. Far outshining any other 21st century band so far. NOT CRAP.
