Nos amis mexicains du site Stoner Rock Mexico viennent de nous faire parvenir leur nouvelle Newsletter que je vous transcris ci-après ( en anglais ) .
"Hello to all stonerheads.
After being “cyberattacked” we’re back with site updates and this bulletin. We’d like to thank your constant support and permanence with us
There are some new bands added to the site: El Ultimo Heroe and Mustrax, check them out (links available on Spanish side of the bands list only). Also we have some video greetings to all stonerheads from El Pastuso, from notorious Netherlands band Pendejo! With whom we have an interview.
We’ll be using this Newsletter more often to send you, aside of the news, flyers from upcoming Stoner Rock gigs happening all over Mexico. Anyway, read the bulletin to get the latest news.

STONER ROCK MEXICO MySpace, Facebook and Twitter

Be sure to follow and friend us over there, we have also a music player, photos, gig flyers and the latest on Mexican Stoner Rock and our peers worldwide."
