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.


Olivelawn - Sap (1991) & Sophomore Jinx! (1992)

San Diego's Olivelawn were a quite short-lived band form back in the dawn of 90's and they released two full albums before they split. Olivelawn were Mike Olson (vocals), Otis "O" Barthoulameu (guitar, he formed Fluf afterwards), Eddie Glass (drums, he formed Nebula in 1997) and Jonny Donhowe (bass). They released their debut album "Sap" in 1991 and their second one "Sophomore Jinx!" in 1992. What we have here is powerful high-voltage punk'n'fuzz rock which honors MC5 and Stooges, as well as Sabbath. I have never dug Fluf but as a big Nebula fan, I really love these two releases (especially Sophomore Jinx!). Great Stuff!
