ACROSS THE RIVER - N.O. demo (1986)

I think I found something interesting here...this is the Kyuss song "N.O." played 8 years before its official release in "Welcome To Sky Valley"...

ACROSS THE RIVER – “N.O.” (unreleased demo, 1986) Truly, the beginning of everything bearing the Desert Rock toetag. ACROSS THE RIVER were from the high desert, and were Mario Lalli (YAWNING MAN, FATSO JETSON, SORT OF QUARTET, TEN EAST etc.), Scott Reeder (THE OBSESSED, KYUSS, NEBULA etc.) and Alfredo Hernandez (KYUSS, YAWNING MAN, VIC DU MONTE’S PERSONA NON GRATA, etc.). They were young and totally hot n nasty in a bitchen BLACK OAK ARKANSAS meets midperiod BLACK FLAG kind of way. Sadly, they were too early for all them just-post-hardcore kids to fully grok. Plans for a release on SST (working title: Live At County Line) never came to pass...
For now, I have been told that there are like 4 or 5 ATR songs that were recently found on a multitrack... I could get only this one for now, but I will reply with more...
Enjoy my GOMIES...

It still is remarkable that their

Anyone ever noticed in the kyuss - green machine clip there is a "across the river" logo on the back on one of the amplifiers?

1:43 to 1:45.
Dont know why I am sharing this anyway.. haha
Already had this song, on soulseek lots of people have it under a 'release' of yawning man, called across the river. It also includes two versions of catamaran and all the song of pot head. But I doubt it was released that way.

LOL, Yeah I had this song for a long time, but it was tagged under Yawning Man. Nice to clear that up. I love you, Matias! Keep rockin' the Gomies!

across the river was actually a four piece, with a dude named mark anderson on second guitar (blond dude to (your) right of mario lalli in first pic). nick oliveri mentioned this in an early qotsa interview (with alfredo hernandez confirming obviously) as he saw them play at his high school. here's hoping the whole thing sees the light of day soon.

Love this!Its' a shame they never got to release an album on SST. Grr...Still on the hunt for more of their tracks to see if they've been leaked, alas to no avail.
