Mondo Generator were formed in 1997, before QOTSA were even a twinkle in Josh Homme's eye. Their current (second) album, 'A Drug Problem That Never Existed', is out now on Mike Patton's Ipecac label. The band includes, alongside Oliveri, drummer Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Fu Manchu, the Operators), guitarist Dave Catching (QOTSA, earthlings?, Texorcist) and Molly Maguire (earthlings?, Yellow #5).
