Biography

There are several bands with the name Weed:

1) This is the world class Vancouver WEED. They’re the sludgefest that bleeds through the brick as you walk past your neighbor’s vibrating house, that band you hear blaring through the walls of your cooler older brother’s bedroom, the music you listen to on your walk home from the bus at night as you think how dismal youthood is or how maybe even just how fucking great it can be. WEED is all ages scum.

Releases:
2009 - To the North EP

2010 - DC Hope EP
2012 - Gun Control EP
2013 - Deserve

2) An elusive producer billed as +++WEED was included on Astro Nautico label’s 2009 Atlantics compilation. Genre categorization is difficult, but the music can be described as psychedelic abstract hip hop, or experimental electronic. Hints of lo-fi recording, vintage ephemera sampling, and hazy, stoned out melodies.

3) A / band from Germany, they only released one album, titled Weed…!, in 1971. This is the Weed responsible for the songs “Sweet Morning Light, “Lonely Ship,” “My Dream,” “Slowin’ Down,” “Before I Die,” and “Weed.”

Between the release of Uriah Heep’s albums “Salisbury” and “Look At Yourself”, in 1971, Ken Hensley went to Germany to record an album for a project simply called “Weed”.

This “concept” album related to an infamous rock’n’roll habit! Unfortunately the album sleeve didn’t list the line-up. Aside from Ken Hensley, some members of the 1970/71 Virus line-up were also involved, Bernd Hohmann and Werner Monka at least and possibly their rhythm section as well.
