Number 14

Number 14

“These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands -- with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here.” Hopi prophecy as told by White Feather in 1970.

Seventies and stoner. The two are linked together indefinitely and they owe a lot to each other. And as said before the resurgence of all that goodness the last few years has given us a fair share of amazing albums. Some more stoner and others more groovy or filled with enough fuzz to make a shoulder long wig so that even that weird bald uncle that only visits during the holidays could become cool again. And these guys go for the fuzz and for the proto-stoner of the sixties in a big way. Intense drumming and classic riffs are key here and produce a warm nest to sleep in. But be careful; cause their are quite a few stings lurking around the corner and once the venom swirls through your blood there is no telling what will happen! Ooh; and should we mention Sweden once again?!
