No mesmo final de semana em que tivemos o grandioso SWU, o Carioca Club trouxe a São Paulo o Kyuss, banda originária de Josh Homme, líder do Queens of the Stone Age, e banda cujos integrantes formaram, após o final em meados anos 90, outras bandas legais como Fu Manchu, Eagles of Death Metal e Mondo Generator - que é inclusive o nome de uma canção do Kyuss.
A formação que se apresentou por aqui veio composta por John Garcia (vocal), Brant Bjork (bateria, participou também do Fu Manchu e Mondo Generator), Nick Oliveri (baixo, mais famoso pelo Queens of the Stone Age mas também com participação no Mondo Generator), todos ex-integrantes durante os anos 90, e o guitarrista Bruno Ferery, cara nova na cena.
Não tenho a menor dúvida de que shows em lugares menores são bem mais legais e intensos que os de grandiosos festivais, e isso ficou mais uma vez comprovado, com a proximidade entre o público e a banda…

Last night I went to see Kyuss at Club Capitol in Perth. Firstly I'd like to say to anyone who claims mosh pits are a thing of the past: you're wrong!! Secondly, I'd like to say I didn't need to wash my hair last night, at least not before going to that show. Afterwards, I had no choice unless I wanted to sleep with alcohol-soaked hair. And no, it wasn't my alcohol. I'm pretty sure it is just that particular venue that attracts these sorts of people. I've seen two rather different bands there lately and have been roughed up in the mosh both times! I'm too old for this, people!! Hehe. Whereas at other venues I've gone to, there's no crowd surfing, no surge of the crowd so that you think you might lose your footing, none of that old school stuff.
Anyway...the show was great, and they played all my favourites (I do like Demon Cleaner though, which they didn't play :D). Songs they played that I recognised were:
One Inch Man
Dez 2 2009, 8h32 por dx_xbUntil Today Becomes Yesterday - Three Steps to the Ocean 
Emotional, instrumental, post-metal. They were definitely influenced by Pelican; I might like it better than Pelican's latest, actually. Portions of the last track remind me of classic Tortoise.
It's All About Our Silence EP - Black Sea 
Post-metal with heavy post-rock leanings. Features death metal vocals from a singer with a distinct voice. It's somewhat disjointed, but still a very good EP.
Fall Be Kind EP - Animal Collective
Similar to Merriweather Post Pavilion and almost as enjoyable.
Got Nuffin EP - Spoon 
The rapping on the last track is embarrassing. I really hope this isn't a taste of things to come. Even the title track is disappointing and forgettable.
Amesoeurs - Amesoeurs 
French band that switches between black metal, post metal, and shoegaze-pop. The lead singer is a woman who switches between clean vocals and death metal vocals. It's a mess; not my thing.
Post-Nothing - Japandroids

Welcome to Sky Valley is an album with a massive physical presence. Turn it up as loud as you can bear and listen as it staggers out of the speakers towards you, like bad news. Whenever I hear it, I form a mental image of the record playing from somewhere inside a dense cloud of pot smoke, echoing over the semi-comatose human debris of a particularly good party. The experience of listening on vinyl is recreated on CD by heaping several songs together on the same track, serving the music up as three slabs of sweaty, monolithic stoner rock.
Gardenia’s growling, sludgy guitar riff repeats like an engine cycle, the drums charging-in, then grounding the song in a monotonous chugging groove; John Garcia yelling-out lyrics that could conceivably be about women, motorbikes or drugs and which are probably a concentration of all three.
This is music for the groin, less about moshing, than slow gyrations of the pelvis; a distillation of rock in its purest form: shit-faced, dirty and high.
