Stoner Rock BBQ is the most unique music blog I’ve ever come across; they review music and give you recipes for BBQ’ing. I hope they don’t find out I’m a life long vegetarian. (Side Note: I bet this blog is ran by people from the south!)
Purple Suns – MINES is now is production, I’ll post the first copies and give some more news about it asap.
In 2010, Eric Stroud, shark enthusiast, bought a church in the small town of Canajoharie, NY in order to take advantage of the immaculate organ that it houses. In the summer of 2011, he opened its doors for a weekend to let 13 bands stay, play and record. This is documentary of that weekend. Despite this being a "church" retreat, there was nothing really religious about it except for the fact that Eric's a saint for letting us do this!
The artwork was done by the young Richie Brown, who in my very humble opinion, is an artistic genius. He made a theramin out of some fake tits once, it blew my mind. Check him out. http://richie-brown.com
