SongoftheDay: SO HIGH, SO LOW by MONDO GENERATOR

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou cannot deny the look in his eyes.  There’s a darkness in Queens of the Stone Age stuff that has to come from, at least, the attitude and energy coming off bassist Nick Oliveri.  Originally organized as a simple solo project, Mondo Generator delves deeper into that darkness.  On much of their stuff you can really hear Nick’s love of hardcore.  It’s uglier than his other projects, but can also find a more melody-orientated corner, from time to time.  This song is one of those times.  It still has it’s ugly moments, which I love, but it still sings a friggin’ song, which I tend to need these days. We are pleased to announce that we have Bart Geevers from Peter Pan Speedrock, the amazing Dutch band that will be touring with Mondo Generator across the US in October, on as guest curator for the rest of the week.  Bart will bring us a pretty wicked look at some of the best (and smashiest) rock and roll to grace our turnatbales in a long, long while. Awesome. – FATS
