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.

Mario Lalli from Fatso Jetson “Got Fuzzed By Dr.No”!

Proud to announce that Mario Lalli (AkA “Boomer”) from the band Fatso Jetson and Yawning Man joined the “Got Fuzzed By” artists.

Mario Lalli also played and plays in bands like “Across the River”, “Yawning Man”, “The Sort of Quartet”, “Rubber Snake Charmers” and “Doom Quartet”.

Besides being a touring performer, Mario “Boomer” Lalli is known because he initiated the now legendary “Generator Parties” ( using a generator with voltage regulator, instruments, mouth to mouth advertisement, and a light bulb)  in the Low Desert near Joshua Tree and Palm Springs California, that ended in the early ’90’s. Many bands where inspired by these parties and local performances. Leaving a scene and reputation behind that later crossed and inspired the rest of the world.

Now Mario Lalli (together with son Dino Lalli, Yawning Man’s Gary Arce and Tony Tornay) is touring Europe and ends the tour with a recording/perform session in France with his Double Doom Quartet. Also Alain Johannes, Dave Catching, Joey Castillo, and Hifiklub will be collaborating on this project.

I was invited by Mario to come to a show because they appreciated my work.
As a mutual fan of Fatso Jetson, I had seen the coolest show since a long time and met some really nice folks. I brought some effects as requested and tried some before the show.
Mario now uses the PowerDriver MkII as his main effect. WAUW!

After calling it a day towards a lot of Dr.No dealers, distributors and actually a big “good bye” to the music industry, Dr.No has started his new independent journey.

Room for a lot of new ideas that he needed to work out.

His most recent and challenging idea is to create a special custom “Art” pedal for his musical hero and friend Alain Johannes.

Alain Johannes

A very excited challenge and collaboration, with a lot of new never seen before combinations and features like “custom coin knobs”, “skull knobs”, cool new design and Fuzz, Filter Combinations to create magical tones.

Again this will become the most excited Dr.No signature custom guitar effect known to date.

You can follow the regular FaceBook and Twitter page @DrNoEffects and , but besides that Dr.No gives you and exclusive preview in his laboratory’s environment on all projects he is working on. Take a sneak peak at @DrNoCreations at Twitter and Instagram, and

More developments and progress on Dr.No’s project for Alain Johannes soon…….
