CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THAT MONDO GENERATOR, WITH A BIG BOWL OF DOG FOOD!!!

February 28, 2013
Much like the celebrated Warhol painting, Mondo Generator revisit the classic Campbell's soup can image for the cover of "Dog Food".

I am seeking help.  I am an addict.  I know I have a problem.  It is NOT affecting my health.  But I just can’t help myself.  I keep going and getting more and more.  I can’t stop.  What is my addiction?  Mondo Generator!  I have done something like three or four reviews of either Mondo Generator or Nick Oliveri.  Hell Comes To Your Heart, Death Acoustic, and now Dog Food.

I may have said words to this affect before, but I can’t help it.  Nick Oliveri is a fascinating musician.  He brought the edge to Queens Of The Stone Age, and I’m sorry Josh (Homme) but Queens has not been as edgy without him.  So he had a dust up with his long time girlfriend, he was arrested for going onstage naked at Rock In Rio, with brilliance comes bullshit.

Homme knows this as he has recruited (read: been ordered by Interscope) to bring Oliveri back into the fold for the hopefully soon-to-be released new Queens Of The Stone Age album.  Along with Songs For The Deaf drummer Dave Grohl, who replaces recently departed drummer Joey Castillo.  Castillo recently got married, so I cannot see the correlation between getting married and giving up a steady gig.

Unless he was forced out, by intrusive Interscope.  I can’t wait for Homme’s contract with Interscope to be over so he can release what he wants on his label, Rekords Rekords.

Getting back to Oliveri, the connection is not only to Grohl on the new Queens album, but also on the Dog Food album.  In fact, the disc starts off with Grohl giving a four-count.

Let’s hear what Nick has to say now!
