Monster Magnet: Reissues

Album Review

Stoner space rockers’ major-label years revisited.

Dave Wyndorf’s drug-damaged space cadets arguably did as much as Stoner metal pioneers Kyuss to establish that genre’s fuzz-caked, acid-tinged sound.

Yet their retro stylings – from Wyndorf’s Jason King moustache to the kitschy, demon-fancying sleeve art – meant they were never quite as uber-cool as Josh Homme and co, and their evident love for some of rock history’s more outre flights of poetic fancy meant they would never fit in with grunge’s po-faced indie ethics.
