Instrumental Driving music for Felons.

A musical collective series, founded by Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) in 1997. Apparently the first session “Instrumental Driving music for Felons Desert Sessions Volume 1″ was completed in four days of jamming whilst under the influence of entheogenic mushrooms. The musical style is a dark, loose, sonic, psychedelia hued stoner rock with leanings toward Pink Floyd and the occasional angular melodics of Captain Beefheart.

The Desert Sessions took place at the Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree when Josh Homme brought together musicians from Monster Magnet, Goatsnake, Kyuss  and Soundgarden.
