Queens Of The Stone Age Reunite With Nick Oliveri

When it was announced the Dave Grohl had rejoined Queens Of The Stone Age, some commenters theorized/joked that maybe Nick Oliveri would be next to rejoin the band. Considering the apparent acrimony after Josh Homme booted Oliveri in 2004 (and especially after Oliveri was charged with numerous criminal counts in 2011), that seemed … unlikely. More »

Josh Homme – “Nobody To Love”

According to their spare Facebook posts, Queens Of The Stone Age are at work on their sixth LP, the follow-up to 2007’s Era Vulgaris (apparently it sounds “so badass,” according to Eagles Of Death Metal frontman Jesse Hughes), but in the meantime, we’ve got a new track from the band’s mastermind, Josh Homme. “Nobody To… More »

Jack White – “Freedom At 21″ Video

Last week, Hype Williams and Jack White posted up the trailer to “Freedom At 21″‘s video. As a general rule, video content that is just over two minutes shouldn’t be granted a trailer, but Hype and White are brands unto themselves, and if anything it was an indication that they were “going for it.” And… More »

Glen Campbell – “A Better Place” Video (Feat. Josh Homme)

After he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s last year, the country music legend Glen Campbell decided to give one last album and tour. The album was Ghosts On The Canvas, and its final single is “A Better Place,” a heartrending song about a life well lived. Campbell intends for its video to be his last one. More »

Josh Homme Makes An Informercial For Scissor Sisters Magic Hour

To date, Scissor Sisters have teed up two videos from next week’s Magic Hour LP: “Shady Love” which featured cute kids and Azealia Banks, and “Only The Horses” which featured platforms and horses. Both memorable, though neither of them gave Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme a chance to run satirical line reads o… More »

Florence + The Machine (Feat. Josh Homme) – “Jackson” (MTV Unplugged)

Later this month, Florence And The Machine will have their own edition of Unplugged broadcast on MTV, and that performance features Florence Welch and Queens Of The Stone Age’s Josh Homme collaborating to cover Jerry Leiber and Billy Edd Wheeler’s “Jackson.” Florence posted the audio via their YouTube channel, so stream that below. The grou… More »

Them Crooked Vultures, Crisis Of Conformity Play SNL

The supergroup’s performance was overshadowed by Crisis Of Conformity, Fred Armisen and Dave Grohl’s pitch-perfect hardcore punk spoof. Plus John Paul Jones had the line of the night in an unaired sketch (with ?uesto) about farts. Watch and learn. More »

New Arctic Monkeys – “Catapult”

According to the helpful comment left by Mr. Quick, a “cornerstone” is “someone who can only have good sex when they are stoned.” And according to most who’ve spent time with Humbug, “Cornerstone” is the Alex Turner’s best lyrical and vocal performance yet. It’s already received a memorable video, and today sees the release of… More »

Stream Them Crooked Vultures

After your dad leaked Them Crooked Vultures’ self-titled debut, the band opted to stream the entire collection. It’s out officially 11/17 via DGC/Interscope. (Get a load of “Warsaw Or The First Breath You Take After You Give Up.”)… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Mind Eraser, No Chaser”

It’s about time someone had some pun with Thelonius Monk. “Mind Eraser, No Chaser” isn’t the first studio single we’ve heard from rock-demigod triptych Them Crooked Vultures’ self-titled debut — that’d be “New Fang” — and it isn’t the only instance of their titular wordplay (see also: “Interlude With Ludes,” “Caligulove”). But it’s the first… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “New Fang”

You don’t have to pack into crammed rock clubs/attend huge festivals/scour YouTube for crap-grade performance clips for tastes of the Led Stone Age Fighters supergroup much longer: Them Crooked Vultures have a self-titled debut out next month, and the studio song they want you to hear first is “New Fang.” For fans of riffs.

Them Crooked Vultures @ Stubb’s, Austin 10/1/09

They’ve come a long way: From being just a couple of scrappy upstarts playing a bunch of unreleased material at the Metro this summer, three practically unknown dudes named John Paul Jones, Josh Homme, and Dave Grohl (along with megastar Alain Johannes of course) now have a full US tour plotted, kicking off last night… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Caligulove” (Live At Lowlands)

Following live videos of “Dead End Friends” and “Elephants,” here’s one for “Caligulove” from the Homme/Grohl/John Paul Jones project captured at Saturday’s Lowlands festival in the Netherlands. Not as bombastic as previous samples, but this one’s got JPJ on organ, y’all. (Plus, full-length vid of “Nobody Loves Me [And Neither Do I],” which is TCV’… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Dead End Friends” (Live In Amsterdam)

Josh, Dave, and John Paul didn’t make it easy for us to attend their first-ever live show: midnight on a Sunday in Chicago, which happened to be just hours after three days of the muggiest Lollapalooza to date, at the 1,100-capacity Metro rock club. Which had a broken air conditioner, as if the 1,100+ Zep/QOTSA/Foos/Nirvana… More »

Them Crooked Vultures @ Metro, Chicago 8/9/09

After three days of extreme sweat and fatigue from running between stages in Grant Park for Lollapalooza (post TK), ordinarily there’d be zero appeal to a midnight Sunday show in an overcapacity rock club without a working air conditioner. But there was nothing ordinary about last night’s gig at the 1,100-person Metro in Wrigleyville. And… More »

Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, And John Paul Jones Are Them Crooked Vultures

The Foo/Queens/Zep supergroup first rumored in 2005 will play Chicago’s Metro on Sunday. Tickets go on sale Thursday morning. There’s even an official site with links to their Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook and those are obviously impossible to fake. According to Antiquiet an album and tour are on the way. More »

Premature Evaluation: Arctic Monkeys – Humbug

The Arctic Monkeys grew their hair and enlisted the ear (and heavier bass lines and guitar squeals) of Josh Homme for their third album Humbug. In interviews, they’ve mentioned the influence of Black Sabbath on the collection and said they listened to Hendrix and Cream while they recorded it. The brooding, sexy, minor-key “My Propeller“… More »

New Arctic Monkeys – “Crying Lightning”

Longstanding Diddy buddies Arctic Monkeys have long been working on the followup to their Favourite Worst Nightmare with lead stone aged Queen Josh Homme. Songs have made it into their setlists — this song in particular — but today the band debuted the studio version of “Crying Lightning” from their forthcoming Homme-fied Humbug on BBC’… More »

Eagles Of Death Metal @ Henry Fonda Theater, Los Angeles 2/4/09

With Heart On in their pockets, Eagles Of Death Metal are now on a whirlwind tour taking them to 42 venues in nearly half as many countries. The Los Angeles show is always a special EODM stop, though; that’s where you can count on member-in-vision but not-on-the-road Josh Homme to add some muscle to their… More »

Arctic Monkeys Working On New Album With Josh Homme, Releasing Live DVD

Whatever people say they are, that is what they’re not. Unless people say the Arctic Monkeys are working with Queens Of The Stone Age man and internationally renowned lover of gays, Josh Homme. Because that is something they definitely are. The BBC writes (via goldenfiddle):

The singer revealed the collaboration at the London premiere… More »
