As I already mentioned at the beginning of this new triad of ‘Oleadas Stoner’, I still had some compulsory records from the 2019 exercise and it is fair to give them coverage as they deserve, this is the case of some survivors of the most genuine and primitive Stoner scene of the Second half of the 90’s such as the Belgians from Bruges, Cowboys & Aliens. For those who do not know them, I inform you that their career has been quite irregular, they began in 1998 following in the wake of Kyuss, the most grungy grunge read Alice In Chains and Soundgarden and the Hard Rock 90’s counting in its first stage with four trembling threads such as League Of Fools (1998), A Trip To Stonehenge Colony (2000), Love, Sex, Volume (2002), and Language Of Superstars (2005). From here on, there are crises, egos and changes in formation that make C&A take a breather, never making it clear whether it was a final dissolution or a necessary break. In 2011 the three original members, Henk V.

No, I will not enter this time to cite one or the other themes, I think it is a group album, of global listening, putting all the attention of the world in a comeback that returns them all the validity and credibility lost in their years of silence. Stoner Five Stars, 18 Carat, call it what you want but ‘you’re going to leave it over there’, I’m warning you!…
