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.


Radio Desert Rock Documentary

Recently I found this interesting and great for my collection, half an hour audio documentary for desert rock. It's from BBC Radio 1 back from around 2000 (I'm not sure for this,if anyone knows something more please be kind to share it). It's going back in how things in this scene started and evolved. You can listen to what was happened straight from first-hand experiences by guys such as Josh Homme, John Garcia, Scott Reeder, Mario Lalli, Chris Goss, Dave Catching, Nick Oliveri and Tony Tornay among others. And of course with the right background music by Kyuss, Brant Bjork, Fatso Jetson, Desert Sessions.... I believe that's a high value material for the scene we're all loving and wish to have been part of it,back in it's birth.
