Hey,
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!
Cheers,
Thanos
PS: Rock Trips Mixtapes will be back soon.... They'll be the only thing posted from now on. Perhaps some other personal comps too.

Mushroom Gods


Take the heritage of Hawkwind,Hendrix,Amon Duul II,Captain Beefheart,early-Pink Floyd,Tangerine Dream and so on,and pack it up in one band. Here you are, you just found Mushroom Gods. One of the greatest neo psych prog rock bands born in mid-late 90's in UK and probably in a totally wrong era. If you fancy psych and bands like the above are your guides then you MUST listen to them. Amazing stuff! And they must have been greater in live judging by their live release.
From what I found, they split up somewhere in 2002 when their drummer Dick Freek died. Fast Elbert became a recluse and Matthew Corbett a town planner. Also, I found that Lost Johnny and CJD continued as Ejection.
So,if someone has more info either for Mushroom Gods or Ejection...well be kind to help.

  1. Okay, so, this is probably a stretch, but is there any way you could reupload these somewhere? I wouldn't ask, but they don't seem to even sell them anywhere anymore, and I can't find them so much as mentioned anywhere else. I love what I've heard, though! Please help?
