The music emanating from Nick Oliveri’s latest album, Death Acoustic, represents some of the most brutal sounds the journeyman Punk bassist has ever recorded. For his accompanying solo acoustic tour, Oliveri should have a Woody Guthrie sticker affixed to his instrument, amended to read, “This Machine Kills Fascists … and Anything Else Within a 300-Yard Radius.”
For all the bile and rage that Oliveri has radiated throughout his career (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, The Dwarves, The Knives, his own Mondo Generator) and the aggression that leaps out of Death Acoustic (beloved deviant G.G. Allin’s “Outlaw Scumfuc” closes the disc), Oliveri is relaxed and in good spirits on the phone.
He plays the Southgate House Parlour. Read Brian Baker's interview with Oliveri and get show details here.
