Amusing the Amazing was an EP released by American stoner rock band Slo Burn in 1996. It contained only four songs, and sounded very much in the vein of Kyuss, of stoner rock fame, partly due to having been co-produced by Chris Goss, who also produced much of the music of Kyuss, and partly due to the presence of John Garcia, formerly of Kyuss, on vocals.

Track listing[edit]

No. Title Length
1. "The Prizefighter"   2:16
2. "Muezli"   5:12
3. "Pilot the Dune"   3:28
4. "July"   4:51

Later unofficial releases of this EP had added tracks from their earlier five track demo. The quality of these extra tracks is inferior to the normal EP. These tracks are:

  • Wheel Fall (4:08)
  • Positiva (4:25)
  • Cactus Jumper (2:58)
  • Round Trip (2:29)
  • Snake Hips (3:49)

"Cactus Jumper" has since been re-recorded and will be officially released on John Garcia's upcoming solo album as "All These Walls".
