Brant Bjork (born March 19, 1973) hails from Palm Desert, CA, where he began gigging at the age of 13. By high school Brant had begun Kyuss with locals Josh Homme, Chris Cockrell (later Nick Oliveri) and John Garcia. In 1993, Brant left Kyuss and moved to Humboldt to flip pizzas and play soccer. Too much rain moved him back to his natural habitat where he started an independent record label, EL CAMINO which become Duna Records (now defunct) and Low Desert Punk Records; played drums in hardcore punk band De-Con; and played guitar with desert legend Mario Lalli in Fatso Jetson. In 1996, Bjork hooked up again with Homme, to begin The Desert Sessions saga and work on what became Queens Of The Stone Age. However, Brant decided to take the road less traveled and rock with his surf buddies Fu Manchu, an adventure which took him into the studio for five records and around the world in four years.
The fifteen plus minute mind-melting sonic explorations of this San Diego instrumental rock trio make a strong case for the appropriateness of their name: the jams simply don't seem of this world. Featuring members of jaw-dropping live acts Rocket From The Crypt, Howlin' Rain, Nebula and Hot Snakes, a power trio this powerful is just about as rare as a band described as psych-rock actually being a psychedelic rock band these days.
