John Garcia Announces Tour w/ Kyuss Songs

Former Kyuss singer John Garcia has announced that he'll be touring and playing Kyuss songs. Since Kyuss, Garcia's musical projects include Sloburn, Unida and John's most recent band Hermano, plus side projects with The Crystal Method, Danko Jones and countless others who embraced the singer from the Southern California desert.

Why? Kyuss, the inventors of Desert Rock, have been in the last ten years much more popular than when they were still around in the early nineties. So, due to massive public demand over the years to play songs from his old cult band Kyuss, John finally made the decision to give the fans what they want. He will do this unique project with a few hand selected musicians.

The last couple of years John Garcia thought often about reviving his Kyuss-legacy on stage. The more he thought about it, the more he really wanted to do this. John commented: "I don't want to do this just for myself, but especially for the fans. Both for the ones that have seen Kyuss live back in the days, and especially for the ones who haven't had that chance. This could be as close as they could get to the real thing. Please bear in mind that this could be a one-off unique opportunity!"

So that being said, the Garcia Plays Kyuss-project (alias GPK) was born. Garcia, accompanied by these fine selection of musicians, Bruno Fevery (guitar), Jacques de Haard (bass) and Rob Snijders (drums), will head out to play all Kyuss set.

John Garcia (born in San Manuel, Arizona, September 4, 1970) is a vocalist who has been a member of Kyuss, Slo Burn, Unida and Hermano. His vocals have become synonymous with modern stoner rock and the desert rock sound. While still in high school, Garcia help start Kyuss (originally known as Sons of Kyuss) in 1989 with guitarist Josh Homme. The band produced five albums in total, all of which featured Garcia on vocals.

In October 1995, just three months after releasing what could be argued as their breakthrough album "...And The Circus Leaves Town" (thanks to MTV airplay), Kyuss broke up. Their last recording was a 10" vinyl on the now defunct label Man's Ruin Records, which was later re-released on a split CD with Homme's soon to be famous project Queens of the Stone Age. The band has been on an indefinite hiatus ever since and has reached a legendary status, influencing thousands of new young (rock)bands.

Broken Teeth Reveals New Song Titles

Austin's Broken Teeth has issued the following update regarding the progress of their new album:

"In the studio and sweating blood, Broken Teeth is hammering out a new album that will crush like an anvil when it lands at the end of the year. Titled 'Viva la Rock Fantastico!' and featuring guest vocals by Canadian rock-n-roll killer, Danko Jones, the album is a fireball of scorching new tracks, including 'Exploder,' 'Spitting Nails,' 'Blackheart' and the spiked-with-tequila title track. As always, Broken Teeth will screech their rock-n-roll sermon to the metal church faithful when 'Fantastico' ignites a case of road-hard, white line fever across the U.S.A. and beyond. If you bow at the altar of Rose Tattoo, AC/DC and Rhino Bucket, you're gonna scream for Broken Teeth! "

Tokyo Dragons To Support Danko Jones In London

TOKYO DRAGONS will support DANKO JONES on February 12 at the Hoxton Bar & Grill in London, England.

TOKYO DRAGONS released their second full-length album, "Hot Nuts", last September via Escapi Music.

"Hot Nuts" was recorded at Seattle's legendary Litho (owned by PEARL JAM's Stone Gossard) and Avast studios with producer Kurt Bloch (NASHVILLE PUSSY, SUPERSUCKERS).

According to a press release, "Hot Nuts" "amalgamates more '70s American rock influences than its Brit-rock predecessor, especially the likes of CHEAP TRICK and TOM PETTY who can be found rubbing shoulders with the more familiar THIN LIZZY and MOTÖRHEAD influences, and a cover of TODD RUNDGREN's classic 'Couldn't I Just Tell You' seals the deal."

Kyuss Singer Names Solo Project Garcia Vs. Garcia

Vocalist John Garcia (KYUSS, UNIDA, HERMANO) has set GARCIA VS. GARCIA as the name of his upcoming solo project. The singer is currently in the studio writing and recording material for GARCIA VS. GARCIA's debut album, which is tentatively due on September 4, 2008.

One of the songs that are set to appear on the upcoming CD is "5000 Miles", which was written by Canadian musician Danko Jones with Garcia in mind.

"'5000 Miles' was inspired by something I read in an interview with John where he was talking about his reluctance to tour because he misses being with his family," Danko recently told Toronto's Now magazine. "I e-mailed him the lyrics along with a note that said if he hated it, no problem — I'd write 50 more until I came up with one he thought was good enough. He called me up the next day to say, 'Stop writing, this one's great!'"

The mutual admiration that resulted in Garcia singing on DANKO JONES' "Sleep Is The Enemy" album track "Invisible" was supposed to be a one-off recording collaboration, but everything came together so smoothly, they decided to follow it up with a few concert dates together in Norway in November and a one-off show in Toronto in December.

"This whole thing with John Garcia happened really naturally," Danko told Now. "When he agreed to do some shows with us in Norway, it didn't seem right for him to be flying all that way just to sing 'Invisible', so we kicked around a few ideas for other songs we could perform together — something by [his groups] KYUSS, UNIDA and HERMANO along with a few other things."

As for Garcia, he couldn't be happier with the way his ongoing collaboration with DANKO JONES has developed.

"We connected even before we met eye to eye," said Garcia. "My manager in Holland is a fan of DANKO JONES, and he's the one who initially suggested that I check out the band. So I got their CDs and sat out on the deck one night and listened to their entire catalog, and I liked what I heard — I liked their sound and their attitude. Danko's not just a good songwriter, he's a great songwriter."

Danko Jones Undergoes Emergency Eye Surgery

DANKO JONES' frontman/namesake was scheduled to play at NXNE in Toronto on June 8, 2006. After a routine visit to the doctor he was advised that he needed immediate eye surgery, as he had a retinal detachment in his right eye. Surgery was successful, and Danko is recovering well. "We do not foresee the surgery or recovery affecting any future dates so everything currently scheduled is good to go," reads a posting on the band's web site.

DANKO JONES' latest CD, "Sleep is the Enemy", was released in the U.S. last month via Razor & Tie. The album was produced and engineered by Matt DeMatteo at Record High Productions in Toronto and was mixed by Vic Florencia at Phase One Studios in Toronto. Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York (Ted's previous work includes GREEN DAY's "American Idiot" and R.E.M.'s "Around The Sun").
