Striped color vinyl version. Repress of Mondo Generator's Cocaine Rodeo (originally released in 2000) on color vinyl. Prior to the formation of Queens of the Stone Age, bassist/singer Nick Oliveri recorded some originals with ex-Kyuss bandmates Josh Homme (guitar) and Brant Bjork (drums), plus Karma To Burn's Rob (drums) and others. But once recording was completed, Oliveri decided to shelve the tapes; it wasn't until several years later (well after Queens of the Stone Age began to establish themselves) that the bassist decided to release the songs on a friend's indie label, Southern Lord Records. Going by the name Mondo Generator, ten tracks were compiled for the 2000 release Cocaine Rodeo. The majority of the songs are much more-raw and hardcore/punk-based than Oliveri's output with QOTSA, as evidenced by such tracks as "Shawnette", "Uncle Tommy", "Unless I Can Kill", and "I Want You to Die". Available as Black/white/magenta color vinyl (HPS 133ULTRA-LP) and orange transparent/striped vinyl (HPS 133ULTRA2-LP).
