Slo Burn, Unida, Hermano,Vista Chino, All these bands have singer John Garcia in common, and still despite this list of bands, he will forever be remembered in the first place for being part of KYUSS, the band who put this genre called desert/stonerrock on the map. After his last stint with Vista Chino and a limited amount of gigs with Unida, John Garcia felt that now the time was right for an album under his own name displaying his own songs backed here and there bysome famous friends like Robby Krieger (The Doors) on “her bullets energy” and Danko Jones. Overall this is a good album and a song like 5000 mile has all the quality required to become a classic in Garcia repertoire, it’ s also been years since I heard a bass solo in a song, like is the case on”My mind” and it works great. To summarize the first solo album of John Garcia won’t disappoint the people who’ve been following the man’s career so far, but the shadow of Kyuss….. he will never get rid off….
