Gods Monkey – Room For A Pony

Gods Monkey – Room For A Pony
Self released – 2011
Rock, Alternative, Psychedelics, Stoner
Rated: ***

Eindhoven Rockcity; this used to be a true slogan till the Nijmegen area captured the flag and ran with it. But with bands like Hijos De Mayo, Komatsu and Gods Monkey there is a good reason to assume that the tide might turn. The guys started in 2009 and released their first three-track demo the following year. This garnered enough attention to start recording a full-sized album with the productional help of Peter van Elderen of Peter Pan Speedrock and the illustrious Theo van Rock. (Mostly known from his work with PPS and Rollins Band.) It results in a groovy rock album entitled Room For A Pony that meanders through the stoner landscape just as easily as that of the seventies rock, alternative metal, smoky blues, gritty grunge and contemplating psychedelics. Sometimes it sounds a bit allover the place; but it is never stereotype, and when those places visit Tool, Therapy?, The Cult, Queens Of The Stone Age, Peter Pan Speedrock, Life of Agony and Tin Machine whose complaining?! Not me!
