MOJAVE LORDS was born in Joshua Tree, California at Rancho De La Luna recording studio, where Queens Of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, Daniel Lanois, The Desert Sessions, Masters Of Reality, UNKLE and countless others have created incredible recordings.

MOJAVE LORDS is the brain-child of musical mastermind David Catching and his neighbor, the equally brilliant Bingo Richey. After years of working with some of the world's brightest rock artists, they decided to team up, strap themselves in to a homemade rocket and press the launch button.

With some help from their friends; Brian "Big Hands" O'Connor, Barrett Martin, Chris Goss, Joey "The Sexy Mexi" Castillo and Danny Frankel, they made what the New York Times is calling "Dark, sexy rock & roll for a brave new race."

This is the next wave of Desert Stoner Rock.

This is mature, smart and visceral.


Featuring members of Eagles Of Death Metal, Queens Of The Stone Age, Screaming Trees, Tuatara, earthlings?, Masters Of Reality.

DiNOLA personify all that makes their home, New Orleans, one of the greatest cities in the world. Listening to the bewitchingly beautiful voice of Sue Ford, her immensely compelling lyrics over the roar and rumble of the powerhouse trio of, husband Jimmy Ford on dynamically wicked drums, Eddie Payne’s solid, stalwart bass, and Eric laws preeminent guitar and keyboard skills, is likened to a night on the town in
New Orleans.

Known for their astonishing live shows, as well as the madness of performing with/as Pink Slip in many years of Mardi Gras parading, DiNOLA has sharpened their already incredible musical deftness to a whole new level.

Their first album, “DiNOLA”, was recorded at my recording studio in Joshua Tree, California by Edmund Monsef, (The Cult, Smashing Pumpkins..), and produced by me, David Catching (QOTSA/ Eagles of Death Metal/ Pink Slip/ Masters of Reality/ Earthlings?? etc.) DiNOLA’s songs, “I wanna Die in New Orleans “ & “Vaporizer” were featured in the award winning documentary “Jonah Stands up” as well as “Sucka Punch” was featured in the movie “White Rabbit”, directed by Tim McCann.

Their newest album and first vinyl release, “Up High”, engineered by Hayden Scott, (Awol Nation, Arctic Monkeys) and again produced by me at Rancho de la Luna, will be ready for release fall of 2017, and features songs: “Up HIgh”, “Shut up and Get out”, “Valley of the Wrinkle”, “ Apocalipstick”, “Late Night”, and a cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins “Spell”.

Be on the lookout for DiNOLA as they will be hitting the road, bringing their electrifying live show to you.You will be impressed.

Winter of 2017. After bouncing back from personal troubles, Vick Nader (vocals) broke a 2 years live performance hiatus teaming up with an old music companion/former band mate Ed Marson (drums) and Berkeley graduates Vinny Da Silva (guitar) and Apoena Frota Jones (bass) to have fun and jam out some rock tunes.

It wasn’t until a few months later, in August 2017 that The Velvicks finally debuted live at Irving Plaza. Since then, they have been refreshing the rock scene in NYC, delivering an all original "stadium rock" experience to intimate and well known venues like Rough Trade, Union Pool and Gramercy Theater without having any music released yet.

With influences from Pink Floyd, QOTSA, The Black Keys and Radiohead, yet a sound and vision completely singular, the general feedback so far has been nothing but inspirational and 100% positive.

“Songs are making sense, the band is delivering badass live performances and people are responding to it.” said Vick.

The band is less than 1 year old and it's currently mixing their first EP “Red Head” to be released soon. Check out their calendar for upcoming dates and experience them live. The Velvicks are known for their energetic shows and their energetic after parties.
