Band Website

Fatso Jetson is an American desert rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1994 by
Yawning Man and The Sort of Quartet members Mario Lalli and Larry Lalli, along with Tony Tornay,
and Dino Von Lalli (son of Mario). Fatso Jetson have remained a active force in underground rock
for almost 25 years. They are often credited as originators of the desert strain of stoner rock made
most famous by their younger neighbors Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age.[1] While musically
similar to some of their stoner brethren, Fatso Jetson incorporate a variety of musical influences
that includes punk, art rock, blues and psychedelic hard rock.

The band formed in Palm Desert, California around 1994. Living in the desert, secluded away from
the clubs and trends of the music scenes in Los Angeles, the only places for original music to be
played were pool halls, restaurants (after hours) and the occasional struggling bar. On many
occasions, the only place for a band to play has been in secluded desert canyons powered by a
generator.

This bleak cultural landscape is what brought the band together as friends in 1994.
Desert punk scene veterans, and cousins, Mario Lalli and Larry Lalli frustrated by the lack of
venues for original artists lead the young entrepreneurs to open the desert's first ""rock club"".
Rhythm & Brews became a mecca for local bands as well as touring alternative rock and punk
bands.

Fatso Jetson formed at this club after Tony Tornay a regular at the club , Mario and Larry bonded over their mutual love of music."
