The name Nick Oliveri, may not initially ring a bell, but it’s fair to suggest that his CV will. Oliveri’s first burst into the musical zeitgeist came with his pioneering role in Kyuss, one of metal’s strongest voices in leading the stoner movement that swept the genre in the 90s. With their early records paving the way for the genre, their influence on metal is undeniable and inescapable, yet this isn’t where Oliveri’s career reaches its most notorious point.

As Oliveri pursued a side project with his band mate and guitarist Josh Homme, they gave birth to Queens of The Stone Age. The discography and influence of QOTSA can’t be told in a way that hasn’t already been screamed from the mountains a thousand times before, but suffice to say they made an impact. 

As Oliveri arrives at Anarchy Brewery with his Death Acoustic tour on Thursday 17th November, we can expect songs from throughout his career as the 90’s bass icon runs through songs old and new, including his time with bands such as The Dwarves, Mondo Generator and Stöner, making this a night of rock ‘n’ roll that feels essential for any product of the 90s rock scene. 

Nick Oliveri plays Anarchy Brew Co, Newcastle on Thursday 17th November.
