Brant Bjork first made his name as the drummer with legendary stoner band Kyuss. He left the band in 1993, subsequently reuniting with one-time Kyuss band-mate Josh Homme to work on a a project that would become Queens Of The Stone Age. However, Bjork decided to join Fu Manchu, instead of sticking with QOTSA, recording five albums with them in four years.
For the past decade, Bjork has been pursuing his own musical ideas. The latest album, Gods & Goddesses, was released earlier this year, released on his own Low Desert Punk label. It continues in the tradition of the Bjork philosophy: “Do your own thing, your own way, for your own reasons.”
