Acid King - Busse Woods
Say you are sitting around the campfire. It is only September, so every-time you get too close to the fire, you get wicked hot and need to pound a beer to cool off. But if you drift away from the fire, you get too chilly and need a joint to warm back up. In the meantime you are trying to remember conversations conducted at each temperature zone, in between trying to groove to the music, the buzz, and the urge to piss that, after so many beers, will be satisfied right where you stand, right down your leg. If you are lucky, Acid King will be playing on the stereo sitting in the window and pointing out into the yard at you.
Their brand of stoner/sludge is so slow and groove-y, it will not be your imagination if you stop listening for several minutes, and still feel like you’ve missed no minutes of the song. Acid King are not repetitive; they really DO take about five minutes to finish a chord change. "Busse Woods" is timeless, and gives Blue Cheer a run for fuzzy guitar overload as well as molasses-slow odes to drug, drink, ass, and Lemmy. You will laugh in joy for weeks, sober or not, to realize that their cover of "Motorhead" is only 4 minutes 44. It seems like it goes on for days, every ground-zero rock & roll moment of it.
