If you liked “Such Hawks, Such Hounds” check also this documentary called “Slow Southern Steel” which focus on the southern sludge/stoner metal scene. You ‘ll find a lot of good stuff in there ;)
Fuzztastic Planet Festival 2014 was one of the best live experiences I had. Fuzzed out music (stoner rock, psychedelic rock) in a forest, with a small lake in its heart. Gathering point for a lot of my friends around Greece, A LOT of beers, and a great opportunity to explore a couple of really nice bands I haven’t listened before. The best weekend of this summer so far.
Here’s a compilation I made as a tribute to the laziness of the summer and also a tribute to this chill out state of mind emerging after a few drinks. Its called "Rastone Psych Blues".
Ingredients: 3 ounces psychedelia,
3 ounces blues,
and 1 ounce stoner rock for the flavour.
1. The Earthbound - Gardenia (Kyuss cover)
2. Mark Lanegan - All Night Long (Junior Kimbrough cover)
3. This is Nowhere - Dope Head Blues (Victoria Spivey cover)
4. All Them Witches - The Death Of Coyote Woman

Time to give some credit to this great artist who’s behind the main artwork of my show, Mr. Phillip Banken who was kind enough to let me use it. The original artwork’s name is “The Ruiner” and its inspired by Mastodon. A Mastodon’s song is the inspiration for my radio show’s name too.
After the end of the second season of “All the Heavy Lifting”, Im looking back to some of the small achievements this amateur show managed in the last year:
- 36 exclusively fuzz fuelled episodes
- 2 “All the Heavy Lifting” parties
- An “All the Heavy Lifting” dj set as an opening act for the Monkey3 gig in Larissa, Greece
- An exclusive album presentation and interview (Lizardia)
- An interview in a Colombian radio show (Rock Stoner Colombia)
- Reaching up to #5 in podcast charts of Podomatic above all metal podcasts (1/4/2014)
- A four hour long episode with listener’s requests.
But the most important is that this show introduced me to great people not only in Greece but around the world, which is the main reason this show keeps going on. A big “Thank you” to everyone of you. See you in September.
