Kyuss Unplugged? John Garcia Tones Down Some Classic Desert Rock

Here's a rather kick bottom trio of videos from UK magazine rocksound's TV portion. Featuring ex-Kyuss singer John Garcia and some supporting musicians, the charismatic voice of 90's desert rock takes the low slung groove of several classics and brings out their bare bones for a stripped down acoustic take.

Having been challenged to examine what heavy music could be by the Palm Desert quartet - who also featured one Josh Homme before he found his voice - it's intriguing to hear the reworked versions of songs that seemed to rely heavily on their earth-shaking bottom end in terms of appeal. In actual fact, the depth of the songs is released almost as well with a quieter approach and focus on the vocal. See what you think...
