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.



Great groovy tunes coming from Australia in El' Garsonorogio two albums "Ready to Eat" and "Atma - Nivedana". Stoner like Kyuss, fuzzed-out like Fu Manchu and a little bit of Colour Haze's sound are the main components of their music.
Especially, "Atma-Nivedana" deserves a place in my classic albums list. They also appeared in PlanetFuzz Records' "Cowbells and Cobwebs" compilation. Check'em out!


  1. Thanx for these oldies, read reviews about it years back on planetfuzz, but never heard it. There were some awesome demo-bands introduced/reviewed back then, i'm still searchin'for some of those, maybe you could help me out?
    Spindrift - Ends of the Earth E.P (aus)
    Spindrift - Tearing the Fabric of Space (aus)
    Kybosh - Get It (aus)


  2. I'm glad you like them. I have the two Spindrift you asked and I will probably upload them today. As for the Kybosh, I'll see what I can do.
