VALIS- Vast Active Living Intelligence System(2002)**INTRO BY ANOMICELEVEN**

Mr ANOMICELEVEN who seems to be a big VALIS fan help me out with this intro, thanks man for getting involved.
What can I say about VALIS... after Kyuss broke up, Homme joined Screaming Trees as their second guitarist.. though he isn't on any albums, he toured with the band... then, of course, the Trees broke up, and Homme was working on QOTSA... There are a lot of the Seattle grunge guys on Desert Sessions 1 & 2, and the first Queens album came out on Stone Goassard's label Loosegroove... if I am not mistaken... anyways, after the Trees broke up... one of the Conner brothers.. and another Conner brother who wasn't in trees started this band... I think someone from Mudhoney was in VALIS originally.. Dan Peters maybe? Anyways... VALIS is the name of a novel by Philip K. Dick (you know... Minority Report, Blade Runner, etc)... and the main character in the novel is Horselover Fat... I don't know whether the conner bros are horselovers.. but...

Hope it's the right place.
PS sorry for it being on RS I can reupload it to mediafire if you'd like.

Damal, Welcome my friend, I'll check it, and upload myself to mediafire and post, pls come in, grab all you want..cheers

Matias--Another hit. Thanks, bro.

Anomiceleven--Thanks for the info. A lot of folks probably think the Palm Desert/Seattle connection begins and ends with Lanegan & Homme, or Weiland and Goss. The desert had a big impact on the northwest scene, and vice versa. Thanks for schooling the faithful.

Damal--Welcome to the 13th floor, man. Thanks for sharing the new High on Fire. I'm a huge Matt Pike fan, so I've been eagerly awaiting this one. Thanks again!

this is phenomenal, thanks for posting. (damal, thx also for the new HoF!) and the brant bjork on your player just made my day.

a quick note on 'horselover fat' and how philip k dick came up with that - 'philip' means 'lover of horses' in greek, and 'dick' in german means fat.

stellar blog, thx for sharing all this stuff. cheers from nyc, karsten
