Mondo Generator (sometimes known as Nick Oliveri and the Mondo Generator) is an American rock hybrid band founded in 1997 by Nick Oliveri. The name of the band originated when Brant Bjork spray-painted the words on the side of Oliveri's Sunn amplifier. Mondo means "world" in Italian. The Oliveri-penned Kyuss song appearing on the 1992 album Blues for the Red Sun also took its name from this event, and the amplifier itself appears in the artwork for the album.

Yawning Man is returning to Sister with their crushing and psychedelic stoner rock sound.

Supergiant provides local support

It’s quite possible that the subgenre known to many listeners as “stoner rock” got its first fecund bellyful of mojo out in the bleak and beauteous desert east of El Lay thanks to bands called Yawning Man and Kyuss. In case you’ve missed out on the general direction of these scribblings collectively known as “Show Up!,” we here in the music department at Weekly Alibi put a lot of stock into that movement forward which pretty much began with two discrete groups of Californios who ultimately begat rockin’ sound units like Queens of the Stone Age and Mondo Generator, deeply influencing local cosmonauts SuperGiant in the process.
