approached THE HIGHER THEY CLIMB the same way I approach all “project” releases in the melodic rock world…With nervous, hopeful anticipation and a realistic expectation for the mediocre and mundane.
Stoner rock is a bit of an oddball genre for me. It’s like some bands are actually catchy enough to hold my interest and just make fun music to listen to (Monster Magnet comes to mind) but some bands are just so weird and noisy that you really need to have a spliff or two before you can start to enjoy their music (Sleep, Electric Wizard)
To compliment the event, Slash and Myles play a short five-song set on the Terrace Bar at the House of Commons, home to the British Government. 200 people only were lucky enough to witness this unique event and Myglobalmind were there to cover it.
