Ché was an American stoner rock band founded by former Kyuss drummer Brant Bjork, former Queens of the Stone Age drummer Alfredo Hernández, and Unida bassist Dave Dinsmore. Ché released their only LP Sounds of Liberation in 2000.


Though best known at the time of the album's release as a drummer, Ché featured Bjork as the band's vocalist and guitarist. Another of Bjork's bands, Brant Bjork and the Bros, cover many of Ché's songs during their live performances, with Alfredo Hernández making occasional guest appearances with the band.

According to Bjork, he had been friends with Hernandez and Dinsmore for years; they began playing together in the late 1990s after Hernandez left Queens of the Stone Age.[1]
