The best Core post ever

Core were singer/guitarist Finn Ryan, bassist Carmine Pernini, an drummer Tim Ryan, they were together for a short time in the late 1990's, delivering two albums of fairly unknown and quite strong stoner rock. Information on them is EXTREMELY limited, I'll go with what I can tell ya.....their debut (1996) "Revival" is excellent, heavy-psychy stoner rock, maybe reminding one of Wo Fat, whom you know I like a lot, lots of trippy sound effects and heavy riffing, nothing earth shattering, but you know I love this stuff and I know some of the minions do as well.

They followed up three years later with "The Hustle Is On", similra musically with a bit more of an almost comical, Queens of the Stone Age-ish penchant for goofy song titles and lyrics ("Sarah's Curious Accident", "Skinny Legs and All").....from reading the limited bio on Wikipedia, I see that they toured wth Atomic Bitchwax and Nebula, and, my friends, THAT would have been one hell of a show, would be great if someone would have booted a show or two.

Their albums were unsuccessful and I guess they called it a "career", haven't heard the names of the members turning up anywhere else (not that I have really searched, either).....nonetheless, these are two pretty damn good stoner rock albums that we fans of the genre wouldn't want to be without. Play them loud.
