SIXTY WATT SHAMAN - SEED OF DECADES (2000) ***BY REQUEST***

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This one was requested by our main man Peluka after a stroll through the playlist to your right. SIXTY WATT SHAMAN is a band I enjoy, despite occasionally treading a little too close to retro novelty rock for my tastes. This band often reminds me of a less-campy GRAND FUNK RAILROAD...though I guess recalling GFR in itself is quite campy. Daniel Kerzwick is one of the better vocalists in "stoner rock", and the band certainly isn't afraid to experiment. "Fear Death by Water" is a highlight, as is the very ZEPPELIN-esque "Roll the Stone". Overall, it's a hell of a record, but you keep waiting for the band to find its own unique voice, and that's something they fail to accomplish on this otherwise impressive release.

I remember when this record came out. I was doing the loud rock playlists for my college radio station. And we got a shitload of spins for Fear Death by Water.

Great song, solid record. Thanks for upping it!

This is a killer disc for sure. It's not their debut though. That's the mighty "Ultra Electric".

Ogmonster-- You are absolutely right. Not sure what I was thinking. Blame the booze and pills, haha...
