    anybody familiar with Five Horse Johnson? They get the stoner label, but they seem more blues-rock to me. whatever, I'm a big fan

    I know I am going to be laughed out of here, but two of my favorites are Monster Magnet's Spine of God and Dopes to Infinity albums. I am going to see the 20th anniversary concert for Spine of God in Sayreville next month.

    I'll check them out too. While listening to Astrosoniq on YT this morning I ran into a group called White Hills. Never heard of them til now but loving what I'm hearing.

My favorite CD so far this year. And this is a genre of music that I knew nothing about a year ago. Cool stuff.
    Glad to read it cause this disc is part of my order to Ken!

    Shrinebuilder! Not Stormbringer! My Bad!

    Jen, I'm a big fan of Monster Magnet. Dopes is one of my favorite albums of the 90s. I even like Superjudge, with it's obvious Hawkwind influences!

    I still have my Atomic Bitchwax tee shirt. (I use to jam regularly with Ed Mundell and was once in a band with Keith Ackerman)

    I'm a fan of 5HJ. They aren't as far removed from the stoner rock family tree as one might think. I saw them play a show in Austin, TX at Emo's that also featured QOTSA, Unida and The Dwarves. In fact I'm thanked in the credits of 5HJ's "The No.6 Dance" CD.

    7 Zuma 7 - unfortunately I think they only did one album. According to All.music: The stoner metal movement of the late ‘90s was primarily based in the U.S., but other areas of the world spawned similarly styled outfits as well, including Eindhoven, Holland's 7 Zuma 7. Formed in the middle of the decade, the group's original line-up consisted of singer/guitarist Jerry van Eyck, guitarist John Peate, bassist Nick Sanders, and drummer Jacco van Rooij. 1997 saw the release of a self-titled, five song EP, which led to appearances at such music festivals as the Dynamo Open Air 1996 and 1998 and Lowlands 1998, and made a major fan out of Monster Magnet frontman Dave Wyndorf. December of 1998 saw Sander's exit from the band, as two bassists attempted to fill the vacant spot over the course of 1999 (first up was Ronald Herregraven, next was Arjen Rienks), before newcomer Miranda Vandervoot was welcomed onboard permanently. The same year, 7 Zuma 7 issued their debut full-length, Deep Inside, which featured a spirited cover of the Who classic, "The Seeker."

    Yeah, I got carried away, diverted, distracted, and all of that. What with the new Colorado and Washington weed laws

    If anybody else here has a Pandora account, please send some of these bands/albums to them. I do my share several times a year

    Davis, I'd place Farflung more in the space rock category, with a band like Lithmus, but keep them coming. We can mix in some space and/or doom as well.

    Five Horse Johnson are pretty good - I have The Mystery Spot and The Last Men on Earth. Their label Small Stone is well worth checking out if you enjoy stoner rock / heavy rock. Here's one of my favourites from Dixie Witch:

    Ha, that makes two of us! But I love the genre! I've probably been listening to as much, if not more, stoner than prog lately!

    Faves: Spiritual Beggars, The Sword, Fu Manchu, Earthless, Sasquatch, Halfway to Gone, Alabama Thunderpussy, Five Horse Johnson, Clutch and probably some others I can't think of right now.

    I've bought a bunch of stuff from Small Stone - and I've just recently gotten into Dixie Witch. I have everything FHJ has done except the first one, Blues For Henry, which I think is OOP and WAY expensive if you find it.

    well, I took Farllung from here: http://www.420trainwreck.com/wp_tracy/ so you're probably correct. 420 Train Wreck (click on Listen) is where I got my Stoner rock education
