"These impromptu and predominantly outdoor shows, referred to locally as "generator parties",[4] consisted of small crowds of people, beer drinking, and the use of gasoline-powered generators to provide electricity for the equipment.[12] Homme commented that playing in the desert "was the shaping factor for the band" noting that "there's no clubs here, so you can only play for free. If people don't like you, they'll tell you. You can't suck."

Brian D 3:18:57 PM
A classic
Jason DiVirgilio 3:19:06 PM
The bandwidth gods are angry today.
Mike Lupica 3:19:55 PM
Right on. If trouble persists, you can drop as low as 192, though the gods may become angry, as Jason rightfully points out.
Horsewater 3:20:27 PM
Wait, wait, wait. All this music is from central cali??
Horsewater 3:20:34 PM

Bryon Mollica 3:22:21 PM
Not what I know as metal
Captain Ahab (host) 3:22:48 PM
Most weeks I do have more metal, today is solidly a trip to the desert though
Brian D 3:23:04 PM
Bryon these bands bowed down to the Sabbath sound. Took the low tuned guitar strings, fuzzy distortion that is just right not too distorted , filtered it through the desert sands of This area of California, sped it up a little, rolled it into a rice papyrus and ignited.... somewhat
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:28 PM
Well put Brian!
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 3:24:16 PM

Bryon Mollica 3:26:00 PM
It's bad
Captain Ahab (host) 3:26:01 PM
ok ill go down again
Brian D 3:26:35 PM
Yes the stoner rock or stoner metal does not have the posturing, posing, glam of say 70 to 80s New Wave of British Heavy Metal and 80s hair metal. More focused on the groove, throw in some outer space themes at times, stoner humor & references at times.
Captain Ahab (host) 3:27:52 PM
ok it took a hot second
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 3:28:00 PM
Didn’t help
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 3:28:13 PM
Weird
Captain Ahab (host) 3:28:15 PM
Mike I'm down to 192 now
Mike Lupica 3:28:21 PM
Yeah, still bad. Try going to 128.
Brian D 3:28:22 PM
Helped a little.... the dropouts are less frequent but still pretty bad
Horsewater 3:28:30 PM
@Brian D. I like the galactic vibes of this cali desert rock

Brian D 3:31:00 PM

Horsewater 3:31:12 PM
i think this is a desert stoner rock song
Mike N Sharon Corage 3:31:22 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 3:33:55 PM

Mike Lupica 3:33:57 PM

Brian D 3:50:33 PM
O ya! I kid. No head banging. Don't want to end up like Tom Araya. It's the idea of a head bang only Ha Ha
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 3:51:02 PM
Oh good!! HaHa!!
Joe Rathbone 3:51:20 PM
Show sounds great .. don't let the tech ghosts rattle you.
Jason DiVirgilio 3:53:01 PM
Head banging at work is probably frowned upon. I tend to "drum" on my desk (unaware that i was doing it). I'm sure everyone hated that.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 3:58:16 PM

Captain Ahab (host) 4:26:44 PM
They're still rocking hard, crazy how long they've been at it
Brian D 4:29:29 PM
I like the way they record the vocal right up front very dry. Overall sound of how they record . Yes fun band.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:31:39 PM

Jon Solomon 4:32:04 PM

Jon Solomon 4:42:37 PM
At least three. The former sports writer, the music writer out in Colorado and some guy in New Jersey. Not to mention the John S I get mistaken for on Twitter far too often!
Brian D 4:43:01 PM
