Default It's Stoner Rock Week

The term stoner rock comes from the genre's connection with the use of marijuana, stoner being a slang term for a user of cannabis. It is sometimes believed that the bass heavy and psychedelic sound is meant to enhance the effects of drugs. The roots are in '60s and '70s bands like Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer, but what is called Stoner Rock today was pioneered by Californian bands such as Kyuss, Sleep and Fu Manchu.

These are from the Netherlands and I picked this up on import CD last week. Reminds me a lot of Pink Floyd in it's build up and I think the European prog sound coupled with the American heavier sound works really well:

I wish this was the album version The Blue Garden is much more mellow than it's followers but it is an essential album:

and of course one of the best bands that never made it 2 mins 30. Dear me.
