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.


Sunwheel Power Express - Doin' 65/Sicario 7'' (1997)

I found about this one recently and I have to say that this is an acid-driven psych rock fan's wet dream. Unfortunately this two-track 7" is the only release by these Dutch dudes. If Orange Sunshine means something to you check it. And if not then check it twice. Amazing release! I think the description I found in Motorwolf Recs website fits perfect: 
"Imagine a lead guitar player that plays solos like Jimi Hendrix, a second guitarist that plays like Tony Iommy, a bass player that resembles Dick Peterson and a drummer that drums like Paul Whaley and there you've got them! This is an explosion of power, this is madness, this is a total experience! Their lyrics are about hot muscle cars, hot sleazy women and hot psychopathic hitmen and their roaring motorbass sound is giving every healthy man a hard-on! Forget about all these hyped so-called 'stone rock' KYUSS-clones! There is way more soul and way more freakyness in this supergroup (featuring band members from TOP GEAR, TWIN EARTH and PANTY BOY) than in all these pathetic 'let's all sound like BLACK SABBATH' grunge pop bands together!"
