Hello, This is Nick O. here, and I just finished a new Mondo Generator
record. Its called 'Dead Planet (sonicslowmotiontrails)'. This record is a very important one and the 1st official record of mine since the QOTSA split. It took a little bit of extra time to say what I needed in my writing, but, I finally let it out! 'Dead Planet...' is aggro, it's tense, it's a party, it's isolation, it's about love, loss, hate, it's about my life, it's about getting kicked when you're down, it's about a plastic L.A. and it's synthetic music scene, it's about my friends. Rock and Roll... the meantime, off the top of my head here's a Top 10 of some of my favourite songs...

1. Ramones - I Don't Want You
2. Dead Kennedys - I Kill Children
3. Black Sabbath - Symptom of the Universe
4. N.W.A. - Fuck the Police
5. Moistboyz - Thats What Rock n' Roll Can Do
6. Rollins Band - Gun in Mouth Blues
7. Poison Idea - Just to Get Away
8. Johnny Cash - Cocaine Blues
9. Motorhead - Killed by Death
10. Black Flag - My War

Dead Planet (sonicslowmotiontrails)' is due for release some time in September.
