Ripple Music has announced that Stoner Rock/Desert Scene innovators Fatso Jetson are joining the their roster! Their new album is a split release with fellow Californians All Souls (also ex-Totimoshi), with both bands recording their contributions live in the studio during the pandemic lockdown. The release is due this August. More details are soon to follow.
Fatso Jetson is an iconic American desert rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1994 by Yawning Man members Mario Lalli and Larry Lalli, along with Tony Tornay. They are often credited as the fathers of the desert strain of stoner rock later made most famous by their slightly younger neighbors Kyuss and, later, Queens of the Stone Age. While musically similar to some of their brethren, Fatso Jetson have always branched out and expanded the desert sound by incorporating a broader variety of musical influences including punk, jazz and surf.
Fatson Jetson have toured the world several times, with highly regarded appearances at festivals like SXSW, Roadburn, DesertFest Berlin, DesertFest London, and RippleFest Texas, even appearing in the Foo Fighters’ HBO miniseries Sonic Highways.
