As you MAY have noticed, I haven't posted for a while now....for a lot of reasons which I don't find necessary to mention. Anyway I decided to put Stoned Sun Vibrations on hiatus and concentrate my efforts to Downtuned Magazine ('n' Radio). Many of you probably know that Downtuned Mag is dedicated to the Greek heavy rock scene but since I've started Downtuned Radio too, I'm thinking of including posts about releases from all over the world. Apparently I'm going to keep a ratio but we'll see how it'll evolve.
From now on, you can find me on Downtuned Mag. And for any bands interested in reviewing/including them in radio's rotation etc., you can come in touch with me through the contact form over there. As I wrote above. I'll try to keep a ratio and at least in the beginning I'll try to "promote" mostly "smaller", more independent bands that deserve your attention.
So I want to thank each and everyone of you out there who supported, read, promoted and helped this blog. Also a big fat thanks to all the bands which helped SSV in their own way.
That's all for now folks! Thanks again! Maybe SSV will be back someday. Or maybe Downtuned will become better than SSV.... Who knows.
Be well and stay heavy!
PS: Rock Trips Mixtapes will be back soon.... They'll be the only thing posted from now on. Perhaps some other personal comps too.


Savage Republic

"Savage Republic was a seminal Los Angeles Tribal-Industrial-Art-Punk band from the 1980s, currently reformed and active with a different line-up. They were influenced by a diverse array of music, including Glenn Branca, Can, DNA, Amon Duul, PiL, The Pop Group, Joy Division, Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, The Ventures and Flipper, as well as a variety of ethnic music from around the world. Their sound and aesthetic approach resonated alongside contemporaries such as Einsturzende Neubauten,Sonic Youth and the Butthole Surfers.
In 2005 Savage Republic reformed, albeit without “leader” Bruce Licher, touring the U.S. west coast. The band now consists of post-1983 “core” members Greg Grunke, Thom Fuhrmann and Ethan Port, as well as drummer Sterling Fox (who performed in several post-Savage Republic projects with this trio). The massive Glenn Branca-inspired guitar shimmering still remains.“1938”, their first studio album in nearly two decades, was released on Neurot Recordings in October 2007."
