ROADRUNNER “OCTAVE FUZZ WAH FLYING MACHINA!!! by Dr.No and Dave Catching

Hey there!!!
Doc here!

I have started a new exciting project with Dave Catching (earthlings?, gnarltones, Mojave Lords, Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age, owner and resident of the famed Rancho de la Luna studio in Joshua Tree California).

OFWFM 3

We are currently creating our RoadRunner “Octave Fuzz Wah Flying Machina”!
What?…….Yes “Flying Machina”…….Does it fly?…..Yes it also flies!!!….other than it looks cool, why would we add wings?

OFWFM 1

The RoadRunner is a “old school” Fuzz Wah Octavia.
It has the options:
(Right front side)
Volume, Intensity and Fuzz.
(Left front side)
Octave on/off switch
Wah capacitor switch (3 options)

The Housing is done with red and blue “Flock” techniques what is an old method to give it a peach skin feel and look. It is also used on old vintage wah’s and fuzz wah’s back in the days. It aslo has a very cool new design, and the front plate and foot-rocker plate are made of high grade 3D rubber to prevent slipping.

OFWFM 2

We took the RoadRunner “Octave Fuzz Wah Flying Machina” for a test flight at the Pinkpop festival 2015 with the Eagles of Death Metal, where it turned out to be perfect!!!

Stay tuned…..
More soon…..

Gary Arce from Yawning Man “Got Fuzzed By Dr.No”!

Gary Arce from Yawning Man joined the Dr.No artists club!

Gary Arce

Gary Arce is a virtuoso on guitar, playing a very own sound and style that is far from what every one is called Stoner Rock. In fact in my opinion it has nothing to do with that. He developed his own signature sound by playing dark almost jazz alike riffs and meditative songs. Early 80’s he started The Breed what later developed and mutated in Yawning Man.

Strangely enough  hey released their first album much later in 2005 while in the mean time Kyuss covered their song Catamaran on The Circus Leaves Town in 1995.

Gary Arce played and performed together with Alfredo Hernández, Mario Lalli, Dino Von Lalli, Larry Lalli, Gary Burns and Mike Montano.

Gary uses the “More Gary” because “It sings, and it sounds dark” he told me.
