Of all the indoor multi-day festivals that take place in the UK, there’s one right here in London that has always stood head and shoulders above all the others as far as we’re concerned – DesertFest. Returning to a brace of venues across Camden over a weekend this coming April, DesertFest is three days of the best sludge, stoner and doom carnage the UK will see in 2013. That’s why we’ve dedicated this week’s Slaylist to this year’s line-up.
Unida is an American stoner rock band that was formed after the dissolution of Kyuss and Slo Burn. The band originally consisted of John Garcia (vocals), Arthur Seay (guitar), Miguel Cancino (drums) and Dave Dinsmore (bass). Dinsmore was later replaced by Scott Reeder, who was in turn replaced by Eddie Plascencia. Paul Gray of Slipknot also played with the band as a touring bassist.
In 1999, the band appeared on a split CD release with Swedish band Dozer. Read more on Last.fm
