Kyuss (pronounce: KAI-us) is an influential stoner rock band, originally from Palm Desert, California. The group formed in 1989, consisting of John Garcia[?] (vocals), Josh Homme[?] (guitar), Nick Oliveri[?] (bass guitar) and Brant Bjork[?] (drums), performing all around southern California, frequently at parties in the desert. The group released their debut album, Wretch[?] in 1991 on Dali Records[?], but sales were sluggish even as their live shows gained fame. Chris Goss[?] produced their next album, the landmark Blues for the Red Sun, a critically hailed album that earned the band many accolades.

Oliveri left (and was replaced by Scott Reeder[?]) just as the group signed to Elektra Records and released Welcome to Sky Valley[?] (1994), another acclaimed album. Personal problems soon tore the group apart and Bjork left following a tour, replaced by Alfredo Hernandez[?]. In 1995 they released ...And the Circus Leaves Town[?]. Finally, Kyuss dissolved. Homme, Reeder and Hernandez formed Queens Of The Stone Age, while Garcia joined Unida[?].
