Mondo Generator is the brainchild of renowned bassist/songwriter and heavy music veteran Nick Oliveri (aka Rex Everything). With a career that spans a decade plus and includes four full length albums and numerous singles on labels worldwide, along with multiple world tours and festival appearances, influential is an understatement.
In 1997 Nick focused on developing Mondo Generator, while also finding time to continue playing with the Dwarves and Queens of the Stone Age. With Nick at the production helm and Steve Feldman manning the controls at Monkey Studios in Palm Desert, CA, they unleashed Mondo’s brutal and notorious debut album Cocaine Rodeo (Southern Lord Records) to the world. Eleven tracks recorded in the desert that melded stoner rock and punk with seething raw production, he recruited fellow musicians Brent Malkus (aka Burnt Mattress) and Rob Oswald (aka Up N. Syder) to round out the band. It also features his old band mates from the Kyuss years: Chris Goss, Brant Bjork, John Garcia and Josh Homme on select tracks.
The band is currently recording its latest album, which will be released toward the end of summer of 2016. Nick and his Mondo bandmates are planning extensive tours through Europe and Scandinavia to support their latest—and heaviest—release.
