WaterWays are a band featuring Gary Arce, as well as Mario Lalli and Tony Tornay of Fatso Jetson.[1] Notably, the band also had a vocalist in Abby Travis, who is known for her involvement with the Eagles of Death Metal, Masters of Reality and The Bangles. From 2009 through to 2011, WaterWays recordings had been delayed significantly and re-recorded as “Big Scenic Nowhere”.[2] However, when the tracks became available, the first singles were released on Yawning Sons/WaterWays. Hotel Wrecking City Traders had released a collaborative project with Arce entitled Hotel Wrecking City Traders & Gary Arce in 2011, while Sons of Alpha Centauri had been working with Yawning Man since 2008 as Yawning Sons.[citation needed]

In 2012, following two separate collaborative projects from Arce with both Sons of Alpha Centauri and Hotel Wrecking City Traders, Bro Fidelity Records decided to release a triple way split project of the three artists.[citation needed]

The release contains four songs from WaterWays on Side A, as well as unreleased material from both Sons of Alpha Centauri and Hotel Wrecking City Traders on Side B. The Sons of Alpha Centauri track, “27”, was omitted from their eponymous debut studio album due to its length,[3] with the band saying it was “too long to fit on the original album.”[4]

In 20 November 2012, Bro Fidelity Records released the split on heavyweight 12-inch, 180-gram, triple-colour vinyl.[5] Three artwork covers, representing the three different continents (Australasia, Europe and North America) involved in the making of the split,[6] were designed and produced by artist Alex von Wieding.[1] The record was released to very positive reviews for all three of the bands and their “aesthetic delivery”,[7][3][8][9][10] and has not been digitally released.

WaterWays’ delayed recordings, which were re-recorded as “Big Scenic Nowhere”,[2] were made available at the 2013 London DesertFest for whoever purchased them.[5]
