Electric Wizard - Mountains of Mars

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.

Fuzztastic Planet Fest, here I come.

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.http://www.philippbanken.comhttp://philippbanken.blogspot.com

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.

1000mods - Dope

Massive blast from the past.This is one of these tunes that mean so much in my mind. It works like a representation of an era with a very romantic approach to this kind of music. And the sound…well its heavy as fuck and its only their demo! Bend the knee to Hiliomodian Space Fuzz!
