About:

Influenced by everything from the psychedelic to the folkloric, jazz, hard rock, roots punk, world music, the sound of this trio while hard to describe is visual and cinamatic, heavy and melancholy. driving & daydreaming.

The Yawning Man song «Catamaran» was recorded by the influencial hard rock/ desert rock band Kyuss, on thier 3rd album «And The Circus Leaves Town». The first full length Lp from Yawning Man «Rock Formations» released in 2006 would come almost 20 years after the bands organic beginnings. With Gary Arce on guitars, Alfredo Hernandez on drums and Mario Lalli on Bass. The bands soulful cinematic sound even stronger after so many years. Other releases from the band include the Ep «Pot Head» with the addition of fellow desert musician Billy Cordell on Bass. The band is currently writing and recording their next full length record which will be released in 2014.

Yawning Man are quite a different musical beast from those they inspired. Drawing heavily from the SST roster of artists which set the world ablaze in the 1980s – Black Flag, Minutemen, Meat Puppets – their music is caught in the nexus of surf, psychedelia, Krautrock and the Spaghetti Western soundscapes of Ennio Morricone. Or, if you will, a missing link between the worlds of Dick Dale, Syd’s ‘Floyd, instrumental Black Flag and Pell Mell.

Closely aligned to both the stoner-rock scene which adores them (despite their total lack of ‘Sabbath-like riffery), and the SST family of artists which they are linked to .Their highly vocal fan base runs the gamut from stoners to avant-rockers to even Julian Cope (who mentions the band, in his new Japrocksampler book).

Now, well more than twenty years later, Yawning Man still is going strong; not specifically the band itself as a name, but as that which inspired and drove the members thereof to do what they do, which is an innate drive to create and connect landscapes of the real to surreal- the end result being the beautiful, swirling and other-worldly music you know as Yawning Man- and then some. There have been many off-shoots and side projects in the last couple decades, all different from the next, but all share the same lure of the Desert from which the band members hail- but with different textures and dreams within each project. One of note is the latest project consisting of YM founders Gary and Mario, called WaterWays, which arose from the 'Big Scenic Nowhere' demos, and features Tony Tornay (Fatso Jetson) on drums and Abby Travis on vocals. If you love the dreamy and ethereal feel of Yawning Man be sure to check out WaterWays, who will no doubt very soon become as much of an icon of the Desert rock movement- and as well transcend far beyond that genre, as Gary and Mario always do.
