Brant Bjork
Brant Bjork
Brant Bjork (born March 19, 1973) hails from Palm Desert, CA, where he began gigging at the age of 13. By high school Brant had begun Kyuss with locals Josh Homme, Chris Cockrell (later Nick Oliveri) and John Garcia. In 1993, Brant left Kyuss and moved to Humboldt to flip pizzas and play soccer. Too much rain moved him back to his natural habitat where he started an independent record label, El Camino Records (3) which become Duna Records (now defunct) and Low Desert Punk Records; played drums in hardcore punk band De-Con; and played guitar with desert legend Mario Lalli in Fatso Jetson. In 1996, Bjork hooked up again with Homme, to begin The Desert Sessions saga and work on what became Queens Of The Stone Age. However, Brant decided to take the road less traveled and rock with his surf buddies Fu Manchu, an adventure which took him into the studio for five records and around the world in four years. After few solo albums in the 00's he joined a resurrected version of Kyuss under the new monicker Kyuss Lives! (without Josh Homme). Kyuss Lives! then changed name in Vista Chino and released an album before going to hiatus. In 2014 Brant formed a new band Brant Bjork And The Low Desert Punk Band. In 2016 he released a new album, Tao Of The Devil under his name only. In 2018 Mankind Woman was released on Italian label Heavy Psych Sounds that also started to re-release part of his solo output. A new album, Jacoozzi is expected in April 2019.
Ecstatic Vision
Ecstatic Vision
Ecstatic Vision introduce their brand of heavy primal psych influenced by groups like Hawkwind, Aphrodites Child, Olatunji, Can and early Amon Duul ll. Formed in Philadelphia in late 2013 to primarily "play what they wanted to hear," the band quickly rose to those in the know as a force to be reckoned with and signed to Relapse Records on the power of a demo and their psychedelic freak out, primal live concerts.
Foghound
Foghound
Foghound erupted out of the Baltimore asphalt in 2012, high on gas fumes and loud riffs.

Forging a line up from ex members of Sixty Watt Shaman, National Razor and Junkrod, Foghound quickly got down to work honing their sound through many live shows across the Mid Atantic region and on their debut album "Quick, Dirty & High" which was released on Moving The Earth Records in early 2014; it was a full-throttle hill climb of dirty stoner rock that demanded international attention & landed on multiple "Best of Year" heavy music/ stoner rock lists.
