Brant Bjork delivers lush Stoner Rock with balls of steel, winged by vivid solo guitars and his creaking whiskey tinged voice. Once behind the drums for legendary Desert Rock bands Kyuss and Fu Manchu, Brant has since turned himself into a far-out reincarnation of Jimi Hendrix, on a nearly constant world tour to deliver fuzzy awesomeness to the masses. His live show amounts to controlled madness hitting just the right spot between trippy and doomy, smooth and sludgy. The recent live album 'Mankind Woman is a surprisingly funky slice of soulful rock, but nothing beats the pure thrill of seeing the man perform in the flesh.
Kyuss, Slo Burn, Unida, Hermano, Vista Chino... after years of fronting famous and infamous desert rock outfits, John Garcia's name has almost become synonymous with the genre. Although the man himself rather wouldn't call what he does “desert rock.” Instead he considers it all to be rock ’n’ roll with different manifestations, which is why he showed up in guest appearances for acts as diverse as Orange Goblin and Karma To Burn, to The Crystal Method and Belgium's own Arsenal. After a more intimate solo affair, the man now has a new plan for 2019: a band project called 'John Garcia And The Band Of Gold' that will take him back where it all started: sweat-dripping hard rocking grooves.
