Unfortunately, Mexican Mud has decided to quit, due to personal reasons. Drummer Andrea and singer/guitarist Manuel will start a new project in the near future. Good luck to them! I'll follow these developments closely and post it here if necessary.
I like this band, Fu Manchu meet The Stooges? I don't care how to call this, but it rocks!!!
We are the recipe against boredom, the hope for rock, the energy and the distorsion power.. If you are quiet in our concerts and don't move a finger that is 'cause you are deaf. What else could you ask for? Kickin' Ass isn't the group that everybody is waiting for 'cause we aren't "punks". We're rock, we're punk, we're hard, we're stoner all mixed together. As we say, we're in "nobodys land", we're a bit of everything, we're: ..TOO PUNK FOR HEAVIES, TOO HEAVY FOR PUNKS... (From MySpace)
Tomorrow december the first a new law comes into force in The Netherlands. Our minister of health department, Mr. Ab Klink prohibits the selling, possessing and using of hallucinating mushrooms, the so-called paddos.
This law is created after the dead of two foreign tourist that haved used paddos, high likely in combination with booze and other drugs. While smartshops provide proper information about using paddos. So the Dutch citizans can forget about the enjoyment that paddos brings!
This law contains a list with around 186 species of forbidden mushrooms. The most ridiculous thing is that some species can be found in everyones backyard, in public parks, forests and even in The Royal Palace Garden. So every civilian who has a backyard can be in offence, even our queen! It's almost to laugh about!
Now we can await a new law that probably forbids the famous coffeeshops, again created by Mr. Ab Klink. I guess that in a year time the most coffeeshops will be closed.
The gouvernment of The Netherlands tries through these laws to stop criminallity around drugs.
I guess it will turn the other way. It will lead to illegality, poor quality of dope and that kind of things, while with the smartshops and coffeeshops the autorities can keep an eye on it!
This is the first full-lenght album of Flaming Moe from Brazil and it is one of my favourites of this year!
Soul Hunter has a fresh sound. What I especialy like is the sound of the snare, a bit dry and sharp.
The album starts with Oh Yeah and brings me immediately in a good mood. The vocals reminds me sometimes to the singer of Cowboys And Aliens. The highlight of this album is the last song Explode My Life Again!
Various Artists: Desert Sounds Volume 2 - The Rise Of The Electric World (2 CD 2006)
The only band I know on this stoner rock compilation from Italy is El Thule. While listening this album the smile on my face gets bigger and bigger. I know there's a lot of good stoner music made in Italy, but I never expected this! 30 bands and no one disapoints!
A big thanx to the guys of Mexican Mud for bringing this under my Attention!

DeWolff are three youngsters in age 14-17 and they ROCK! De Wolff creates a 60's/70's sound with only drums, guitar and Hammond organ which reminds of Deep Purple, The Doors and Led Zeppelin. This is a performance in a dutch TV show last week. Their first EP is just released.
This is a review from shinybeast.nl. You can also order their EP here.
CDEP. Psychedelichardgroovin'funkyrock'n'rollin'hotbluesdrivin' hellhoundingsupersweetsixtiesexplosion! DeWolff: a howlin' guitar, a filthy Hammond-organ and steady, groovin' drums. Consisting of INFA's singer-guitarplayer Pablo, his brother Luka on drums and Robin Piso on organ, DeWolff takes you back in time with their raw, bluesy, sixtiesrock. 10- or 20-minute songs? No problemo! They are, after all, influenced by bands like Ten Years After, Cream, Band of Gypsys and The Doors. These 3 experienced stage-animals create pure, raw music; straight outta heart and with passion. DeWolff brings you groovy bellbottom-rock, hellhound-breathtaking bluesrock and even purple-hazey psychedelic love and peace. So take your daily LSD-potion, put on your pink sunglasses, grow your hair and trip that shit with DeWolff!
Italy has a great stoner scene with bands like Allhelluja, Ufomammut and the mighty El Thule.
Mexican Mud plays on Toroidal a mix of good old 70's hardrock and 90's stoner/doom. I hope one day this album will be released on vinyl, all is it for the beautiful cover only. Thanx to Getoffmyelevator for posting this album!
This is a compilation of bands from the The Hague Area, Holland. Most songs are recorded in the famous Motorwolf studio by Guy Tavares (Orange Sunshine), who also recorded the latest album of Dzjenghis Kahn. The compilation is a mixture of raw rock 'n' roll, surf and some stonerrock.
This sprawling, bad ass comp features bands from “The Hague”, which, according to the liner notes, is the worst neighborhood in all of…well, the Netherlands. I know, they probably want to check out Detroit City before they start talking about tough sides of town, but they do claim to have ten year olds with guns and all manner of ugly scenes there, so who knows? At any rate, the seedy side of the city always breeds the best rock and roll, so let’s hope the Hague keeps it’s face in the gutter, because there’s a host of killer rock action on this disc. Most of it fits comfortably in the confines of the garage-punk genre, but there's some hairy stoner rock, 70’s psyche freakouts, and plenty of Amsterdamned weirdness on display, as well. Highlights include the untamed sleaze of Motorwolf’s house band, Pantyboy, with the scorching “Starfighter”; the monstrous Taildragger let it all hang out with the 7 minute power blues of “Walk on the Sun” (and on a 25 track comp, no less!), The White Trash Minstrels introduce the Ventures to Ennio Morricone on the vamping “Slower than His Shadow”, Johnny Cohen and the New Age Nazis do their best GG Allin on “Hitler was a Speedfreak”, Twin Earth knock Iggy Pop in the teeth and swipe TV Eye from right under him while he lies there bleeding on “Trancer”, and the acid-tweaked Orange Sunshine squeal and writhe in Blue Cheer-induced ecstasy on “Ball’s Knockin”. And there’s plenty more where that came from, too. Motorwolf is one of the very few labels catering to Holland’s snarly rock scene, and believe me, you’re missing a lot. So get this, willya?
Oh, and bonus points to Guy Motorwolf for writing the most psychotic mission statement I’ve read in ages-
“You better team up with the MOTORWOLF MUSCLE CAR MOTOR TEAM, son, and experience that DANGER, that RAW BITE, and that DEEP TENSION that the giant HIGH VOLUME DRUG ROCK MAGNET sucks out of you. SUFFER intensely from the flaming fire of the SIDE-PIPE BURNING (and GOD, it’s BURNING RED HOT in your face!) TAKE that NITRO-ROCKET-FUEL-SUPER-SPEED-SS INJECTION like a MAN!”
Exactly, Guy. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Unless I had Amsterdam-quality drugs, too.
This is the 7" of my former band, The Ayatollahs of Rock n Rolla. It was a 3 men band and it sounded a bit like The Cosmic Psychos. It was recorded in 2003, 200 copies pressed on green vinyl. Here is the link:
