BANDSALAT featuring Randy Holden


Hello Dear readership. This is the second installment of “Bandsalat”, courtesy of Bailgun. And today we’re bringing you some serious “Stoner Rock”! Randy Holden! It really doesn’t get much heavier than this as far as guitar gnarlers go. One of the first bands he was in was “The Fender IV” who did this burly rendition of
“Mar Gaya”, a ripping surf guitar instrumental. He went on to play in a bunch of other bands after that, but it wasn’t until he joined Blue Cheer, maybe the first Heavy Metal band, that he really started to stretch his stoner wings. In 1969 he formed a band with one other guy and called it “Population 2” as it was just the two of them. The record is nearly impossible to to find even on CD, but if you’re into Stoner Rock or heavy duty guitars then you might want to give it a shot. Until next time, this is Bandsalat saying “Get stoned”!
