Rebellion ManchesterÂ presents;
The aural experience that Yawning Man delivers on stage and through their recordings is like hearing a colorful kaleidoscope of polyphonicÂ musical textures that is both graceful yet intense.
Formed in the late 1980’s between lifelong friends Gary Arce, Mario LalliÂ , Alfredo HernandezÂ and LarryÂ Lalli, they are recognized and acknowledged as a key piece in the early development of the “stoner rock” genre along with beingÂ pioneers of the Palm Desert, CA heavy music scene. While their more commercial contemporaries leaned toward heavy riffs and hardÂ core punk,Â Yawning Man made themselves distinct with their favoring of reverb laced surf and psychedelic tones…the perfect blend of sound to encompassÂ spacious atmosphere of the well documented “generator parties” of their area in the late 1980’s. It wasÂ at these gatherings where they earned theirÂ bones by enchanting spectators with their seemingly endless free form instrumental sessions, which echoed through the barren, rocky landscapesÂ of the Coachella Valley and beyond.
As time passed, their legend grew with notable names of the Palm Desert music scene paying homage to theÂ group through mention and praise, notably with Kyuss doing their own rendition of the Yawning Man track “Catamaran” on the ‘And The CircusÂ Leaves Town’Â release.
It wouldn’t be well into the new millennium for any recordings to be made commercially available, only fueling their legendÂ amongst the underground. Now with four full lengths available and a handful of EPs and splits, they have become an in-demand name worldwideÂ with ten years of European tours along with treks across the North and South American continents (South America resulting in their latestÂ release,Â Historical Graffiti).Â Festival appearances include Hellfest (FR), Azkena Fest (SP), Reverence Fest (SP) Desertfest London,Â Desertfest Berlin, UpÂ in Smoke (DL),Â Psycho Las Vegas, and various others across Europe.
The recent documentariesÂ Lo Sound DesertÂ andÂ Desert AgeÂ give light onÂ Yawning Manâs influential impact on underground rock mus
