Stoned Jesus is one Hell of a name for a band. This group is from Kiev. It being so soon after my own conditioned observance of the Spring Equinox through Americanized Easter and right before the wife’s Orthodox Easter is probably crossing a line or two. God, I love to cross lines. A riot of minimal proportions with perspective reigns in the little devils of my mind. Hell, when sounds like this flow with the blood of my veins; any wrongness dissipates into a realm of sweet rich dark emptiness. The paradox of not having a care in the world, with no weight of opinion, yours or mine. There is none of that nonsense. Just wicked vibrational flow dancing within with out welded by energy. Nothing to own or be. Just is now with all.
This band is self identified as a Hipstoner band. Most rock bands can be sourced to the Rolling Stones or the Beatles. This band could be sourced to Sabbath. Here is the list of bands that they like from their Facebook page. Tool, Joy Division, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Van Der Graaf Generator, Swans, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Neurosis, Comus, Opeth, Anekdoten, Drive Like Jehu, Mastodon, The Cure, Rage Against the Machine, Deftones. That is quite a list of influences. A couple of unknowns for me to check out. There isn’t a whole lot about this band on the internet. Here is a couple of their links.
The first video shared is an epic song to the writer. I am that. Yes I fucking am, and so are you. Fear is the delusional barrier and maybe a little organized sanity to boot. :). The other two videos are worth checking out.
“…Men do not sufficiently realize
that their future is in their own hands.
Theirs is the task of determining first of all whether they want to go on living or not.
Theirs is the responsibility, then, for deciding if they want merely to live,
or intend to make just the extra effort required
for fulfilling, even on this refractory planet,
the essential function of the universe,
which is a machine for the making of gods.” – Henri Bergson
