It’s been one of the last shows before the world shut down. California’s desert punk icons MONDO GENERATOR, fronted by former QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and KYUSS bassist Nick Oliveri, were currently on the road in Europe, while the pandemic forced them to abruptly end their extensive tour just a short time later. Recorded in high quality at the legendary Bronson Club in Ravenna, Italy, on February 13th, 2020, and to share this unforgettable, high- voltage show with fans from all over the world, MONDO GENERATOR will release their “Live At Bronson” album on July 2nd, 2021, through Italy’s powerhouse label Heavy Psych Sounds Records!
Featuring MONDO GENERATOR hits and several QOTSA/KYUSS classics, the trio has just released a first single from their upcoming live record: “Dead Silence” was originally recorded in 2010, until the track got reissued on MONDO GENERATOR’s “Shooter’s Bible” in early 2020. Performed live at one of the last pre-COVID shows, you can now listen to “Dead Silence” live at Bronson in a worldwide premiere here:
MONDO GENERATOR was formed in 1997 by QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE bassist/singer Nick Oliveri. Initially intended as a solo/side project, the classic “Cocaine Rodeo” album was recorded that same year, but shelved until the Southern Lord label released it and its unique brand of criminal insanity to widespread acclaim and horror in the summer of 2000. Following several full-lengths, EPs and a live DVD, a solo acoustic career and heavy touring schedules with KYUSS Lives! / Vista Chino and MONDO GENERATOR to date, the restless multi- talent Oliveri has started a new band project, STÖNER, featuring Brant Bjork and Ryan Güt. STÖNER’s debut, “Stoners Rule,” will be coming out on June 25th through Heavy Psych Sounds, who will also release VOLUME 7 of Nick Oliveri‘s “N.O. Hits At All” series (due out on July 2nd).
