KYUSS, Slo Burn, Unida, Hermano, VISTA CHINO - wherever John Garcia had a hand in turned immediately to success. The 44 -year-old always understood to create an own style within those bands and established himself as the most distinctive voice of the entire Desert / Stoner Rock scene.
With VISTA CHINO, Garcia makes music very close to his KYUSS roots, but on his self-titled solo album he also ventures some experiments and convinces all along the line. This record is full of first-class, very catchy rock numbers that commute equally between classic Rock and concise Stoner elements.
Once you're in contact with wonderful catchy tunes like 'My Mind' or '5000 Miles', this album is spreading like an infection to the body and one is happy to be involved in the short and crisp ‘Saddleback’ or 'Confusion', which is strongly rooted in Blues. 'Her Bullets Energy' is the next ultra-bouncer on the record, with legendary Robby Krieger (THE DOORS) on the guitar. John Garcia has delivered a multi-faceted and extremely intense solo album that will stir up more dust than a sandstorm in the California desert. Danko Jones, Tom Brayton, Mark Diamond and also Garcia's old cronies of KYUSS Nick Oliveri show up here as guest musicians and this evaluates the thing just in addition.
