The Atomic Bitchwax  

The Atomic Bitchwax was a secondary band for Monster Magnet guitarist Ed Mundell, having been formed back in 1993 before releasing a debut album in '99. The self-titled debut retains a bit of Magnet's penchant for all things 70's, but is otherwise a different animal, being much more energetic, uptempo, and guitar-driven. Much of the album has an improvisational/jam feel to it, with Mundell's blues-based guitars really coming alive. They fit very well in the current stoner rock scene, even though they lack some of the Kyuss/ Fu Manchu cloning of others in that arena. The band released a followup in 2000, but announced its breakup in early 2002 following Mundell's departure, just around the time a then-final EP, Split Blood, was released. But by early 2004 the band was back together, with new guitarist Finn Ryan taking over for Mundell.
