Review by: Alex

the next day, friday, there was a rumour they'll perform one more secret, club-gig. i was able to find out there is a show on friday announced as mondo generator. i lined up very early but it wasn't a problem to score tickets as very few people knew about this. the show turned out to be a nick olivieri SOLO ACOUSTIC show! he performed 80 min to a crowd of 150-200 people. he was in an excellent mood, telling jokes, being drunk but still very entertaining. the set contained QOTSA songs ("six shooter", "gonna leave you", "another love song", "quick & to the pointless", "ode to clarissa"), mondo generator songs ("i want you to die"), cover tunes ("throw your arms around a memory", "demonica") & lots & lots of oddities.

the highlight of the show was when nick was joined by no other than MARK LANEGAN for a great version of "autopilot" & another song i didn't know. man, i was in heaven! unbelievable to witness this. i am still grinning.

josh homme was in the audience alright (looking very cool when lighting his cigerattes) but as nick commented "it's his day off, man!". ;-)

so when they come to your town watch out for possible secret shows like this. they did it in london & reportedly in hamburg, too. there is a mondo generator show at the melkweg in december! ....
