Take stoner rock. I don't know shit about it, and I don't want to. I just want to wallow in it. Just fucking loud ass guitar. Stoner rock may be the last bastion. I don't have to be too vested to say that that is a good thing. Loud guitar? Of course. It's simple, keep that fucking torch lit.
This detour started with a click on a unfamiliar band name, Whores of Tijuana. They're exactly what I'm talking about. Imperfect, but loud and grinding. Offensive name? Answer: It's stoner rock. You're thinking too much.
When I went looking for their stuff, I came across the photo above of Sleep, another band I'd never heard. Oh, but my friend Al had. When I mentioned them to him he looked me dead in the eye and said "They're heavy." Gotta say though, I was relieved that the photo above was a gag. Now I'm laughing with them. I think.
