Desert Sessions – “Resurrection” – [Rekords Rekords]
Josh Homme has released this double LP as an antholoy of his recordings from 97 to 99 of the 10 volumes known as desert rock. These are 17 of the most blistering, sun baked stoner rock tracks with the exception of Like a Drug, which throws a curveball of swank blues into the fast pace of guitar fuzz, rumbling bass and an occasional raw vocal such as Punk Rock Caveman… and the track Going to a Hangin is a happy hand clapping ditty that invites us all to go along. Over the span of time, Josh, former member of Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss, has assembled an odd mix of 37 artists from all corners of the 90’s scene. Most tracks are driven by the songwriting of Twiggy Rameriz and features such notables as P J Harvey, Chris Goss of Goon Moon, John Mcbain of Monster Magnet, Ben Sheperd of Soundgarden fame and Dave Catching to name just a few. This takes you?? to the blistering barren landscape with loud rock intensifying your heat stroke into deliberate dehydration. No food No water just Desert Rock at its best.
