David Kavanagh The epitome of stoner cool yet again from Brant Bjork. The quality never dips with this guy. Closing track 'Locked and Loaded' is a 10 minute slinky, sexy, groovy work out that is worth the price of admission alone. In a word: unmissable. Favorite track: Locked and Loaded.

about

Former Kyuss/Fu Manchu/Queens of the Stone Age skins man Brant Bjork has always liked to keep fans guessing during his lengthy solo career. With constantly rotating musical styles — to the point where the psychedelic musician is spacier than Nebula — pinning down his next move is virtually impossible. Maintaining that same unpredictability, he releases Punk Rock Guilt, a collection of eight tracks that step right back to his desert rock beginnings. Recorded in 2005, but shelved due to other commitments, Punk Rock Guilt is the missing link between the Fu and pre-stardom Queens. Static-laden guitar riffs blaze away over solid yet quite laidback drum beats. Lyrics do little more than fall out of Bjork’s throat as he lazily babbles away through "Dr. Special,” "Lion One” and "Born To Rock.” Bathed in sloppy Orange amplification and fuzzy analog grooves, Punk Rock Guilt is more than simply reminiscent of stoner/desert rock’s pre-millennial glory days; it’s like stepping back to that exact moment. - Exclaim!

8 songs/over 40 minutes recorded a couple of years ago in New Jersey, in a very comfortable studio. A straight-up, kick-*ss rock record! CD contains a non-LP bonus track. CD FORMAT IS LIMITED TO A SINGLE PRESSING, WHEN IT SELLS OUT IT IS GONE!!

about

Brant Bjork Los Angeles, California

Brant Bjork didn't invent it, but he epitomizes Desert Rock and his work has become so synonymous with it. Whether one is considering his pioneering work in Kyuss and Fu Manchu, the stylistic exploration undertaken with Ché or his 17-year solo career, which has undoubtedly become his greatest contribution at this point, in songwriting, style and persona, Bjork is a singular icon. ... more
