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.


Sleep Bootlegs

Few days ago I found these Sleep's live bootlegs from gigs in California and NY back in the early 90's.
To whom is interested,here they are:

Sleep - Live at Gilman St. Berkeley, CA 11-09-91
Sleep - Live at Berkeley CA 02-21-92
Sleep - Live at Gilman St. Berkeley, CA 10-17-92
Sleep - Live at Limelight NYC 1-30-94


  1. With my experience with mediafire is that you have to log in every 30 days or have somebody download 1 file every 30 days or the account goes into a 10-14 day limbo mode then gets closed. This guy most of uploaded them and forgot and nobody downloaded.
