Kyuss – Sons Of Kyuss (Limited Edition)


Kyuss was an American rock band, formed in Palm Desert, California in 1987 by Josh Homme (guitar), John Garcia (vocals), Brant Bjork (drums) and Chris Cockrell (bass). After releasing an EP under the name Sons of Kyuss in 1990, the band shortened its name to Kyuss and recruited Nick Oliveri, replacing Cockrell as bassist. Over the next five years the band released four full-length albums, and one last split EP in 1997 as Kyuss and the newly formed Queens of the Stone Age. This tied up the loose ends of Kyuss and introduced the new band Queens of the Stone Age, which was initially composed entirely of former Kyuss members. Sons of Kyuss is their debut EP, released in 1990. The band released it independently as a vinyl record, pressing only 500 copies. Following this release, the band included these recordings of the songs “Deadly Kiss” and “Black Widow” on their first full-length album, Wretch (1991), while re-recording “Love Has Passed Me By”, “Katzenjammer”, and “Isolation Desolation” for the album (the latter song’s title was shortened to “Isolation”).
