24 Years Ago Today – Young Josh Homme & Kyuss Release Stoner Metal Classic “Blues for the Red Sun’ (Watch “Thong Song” Official Video)

24 years ago today, one of stoner metal’s all-time classic albums, Kyuss’ Blues for the Red Sun, was released via Dali Records, and produced by the band and Chris Goss. Kyuss was formed in Palm Desert, California, in 1987 by Josh Homme (guitar), John Garcia (vocals), Brant Bjork (drums) and Chris Cockrell (bass). Blues for the Red Sun was the last Kyuss album to feature founding bassist Nick Oliveri, who was replaced by Scott Reeder shortly after recording had been completed. The album and the two following Kyuss albums helped set the formation for what would later become Queens of the Stone Age. Watch the official video for the misleading titled “Thong Song.”
