Riff of the Day (Nov 15) Kyuss – Un Sandpiper

Kyuss – Un Sandpiper (from the B-side of the Gardenia single, 1995 Elektra) In my opinion, this song features the quintessential Kyuss line up of John Garcia (vocals), Joshua Homme (guitar), Scott Reeder (bass), and Brant Bjork (drums). Un Sandpiper is a great example of the sound these guys created in the California desert. If this song does not have your head bobbing two seconds after the drums kick in, you are probably hearing impaired. The impact this band has had in my personal listening habits can not be measured. Kyuss has spawned many amazing bands, and their influence is undeniable.
