Featuring members of some of the biggest and most influential desert and stoner rock bands of all time! For fans of Fu Manchu, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Monolord, Mos Generator, Audioslave.
Big Scenic Nowhere is a desert rock supergroup conceived and led by two very different and equally notable guitarists: Bob Balch of Fu Manchu, an integral part of their seminal fuzz since his debut on milestone album The Action is Go, and Gary Arce, the guitar wizard at the heart of Yawning Man, the desert-psych trio responsible for inspiring the likes of Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss (who famously covered Yawning Man's song "Catamaran" on their final album). For Big Scenic Nowhere, Bob and Gary assembled an all-star cast of iconic desert locals like Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, QoTSA), Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson) and Bill Stinson (Yawning Man) as well as talented friends including Tony Reed (Mos Generator) Thomas Jager (Monolord), Lisa and Ian from The Well, and Per Wiberg (Opeth, Spiritual Beggars). Together, these talents pulled together a titanic debut EP that harnesses the sonic prowess of everyone involved but still sounds like the colossal debut statement from a true heavyweight band. This is a 4-song EP which is technically organized as 2 tracks on CD (track 2 is 20 minutes long, haha), so we're looking at a 25-minute monster of an EP.
