YAWNING MAN - POT HEAD (2005) ***COMPLIMENTS OF MATIAS***
The unheralded godfathers of the desert scene, YAWNING MAN is the group that taught KYUSS how to throw generator parties and play great rock. KYUSS' "Catamaran" is actually a YAWNING MAN cover. Nothing official was released until 2005 (on Alone Records), presumably on the heels of the world's fascination with all things Homme. Alfredo Hernandez (KYUSS/QOTSA/BB & THE BROS) was ultimately replaced by Bill Stinson (any Chuck Dukowski/BLACK FLAG fans here?), with Mario Lalli bolting for FATSO JETSON, so yes, you can literally trace all the fathers of the desert movement to YAWNING MAN. If any recording belongs on G.O.M.E., it's this one. Huge fuckin' thanks to Matias for this EP!
