YAWNING MAN

The aural experience that Yawning Man delivers on stage and through their recordings is like hearing a colorful kaleidoscope of polyphonic
musical textures that is both graceful yet intense. Formed in the late 1980's between lifelong friends Gary Arce, Mario Lalli, Alfredo Hernandez
and

Larry Lalli, they are recognized and acknowledged as a key piece in the early development of the "stoner rock" genre along with being
pioneers of the Palm Desert, CA heavy music scene. While their more commercial contemporaries leaned toward heavy riffs and hardcore punk,
Yawning Man made themselves distinct with their favoring of reverb laced surf and psychedelic tones...the perfect blend of sound to encompass
spacious atmosphere of the well documented "generator parties" of their area in the late 1980's. It was at these gatherings where they earned their
bones by enchanting spectators with their seemingly endless free form instrumental sessions, which echoed through the barren, rocky landscapes
of the Coachella Valley and beyond. As time passed, their legend grew with notable names of the Palm Desert music scene paying homage to the
group through mention and praise, notably with Kyuss doing their own rendition of the Yawning Man track "Catamaran" on the ...And The Circus
Leaves Town release. It wouldn't be well into the new millennium for any recordings to be made commercially available, only fueling their legend
amongst the underground. Now with four full lengths available and a handful of EPs and splits, they have become an in-demand name worldwide
with ten years of European tours along with treks across the North and South American continents (South America resulting in their latest release,
Historical Graffiti). Festival appearances include Hellfest (FR), Azkena Fest (SP), Reverence Fest (SP) Desertfest London, Desertfest Berlin, Up
in Smoke (DL), Psycho Las Vegas, and various others across Europe. The recent documentaries Lo Sound Desert and Desert Age give light on
Yawning Man’s influential impact on underground rock music.
