Randy Holden-Population II

I love Blue Cheer, but this album by one of their later guitar aces (he played on New! Improved!) destroys it all. This shit was super heavy for the time and sounds loud and lumbering to this day. I wonder how many stoner rock bands have heard this and then just decided to give up (as they should). This is unbeatable when it comes to heavy, heavy psych fuzz, proto metal, ear busting. And the first track is just about how much he loves hearing guitar. How awesome is that? If you love the guitar too, then this is a must listen.



  1. Hey! Great post! You probably want to listen to this new interview with Randy Holden, its really a good one talking about the sound all the way!:
