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.


Ridge - Le Rodeo '69 EP & The Cayuga Sessions EP

A couple of months ago I posted Ridge's one and only album "A Countrydelic And Fuzzed Experience In A Colombian Supremo", which you can find it here. Before that they released two EPs in 1999 and 2000. Most of the songs are included in their album too (with different production and "sound" though). So here they are for anyone who might be interested.


  1. Great Band always loved them
    great post.

  2. Another great one from the old days, do yo have also their Fandango stuff?

  3. No,never heard of it actually. The only thing I have more is some rehearsal recordings from 2001.

  4. After they split, they continue as Fandango, which transformed into the Matadors, they recorded a 3tr Demo "It Takes Two To Tango, But You Dance Like Hell.."

  5. I just found out that I have releases from Fandango. They were in my second hard drive. I have the one you said and one called "The Sweet Five". But their release dates are 1997 and 1998. I dont know, maybe they started as Fandango? I have no idea..

  6. I have been looking for these since the other album was posted on the swamp. Thanks!

  7. Machabuss is now playing in The Chuck Norris Experiment and Carl Linnaeus is in Chillihounds.
