Josh Homme Albums From Worst To Best

This week, Queens Of The Stone Age scored their first-ever No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with ...Like Clockwork, the first album Palm Desert native Josh Homme has released with QOTSA in six years. It's a richly deserved honor, and one that had been long overdue. With a host of different bands -- and… More »

Coachella 2010: Jay-Z, LCD, Disco Balls & Chandeliers

Four years into my Coachella career and I've never experienced an Indio spring so mild. It's a gift from the gods meaning Brooklynites like Scott and I can wear jeans all weekend, a blessing with the residual benefit of ensuring nobody in Indio is forced to see our unsightly Brooklynite legs (you are welcome, California).

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 »

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. More »

Austin City Limits 2009 In Photos

There was dust, rain, then mud. There was Eddie Vedder, sitting in with Kings Of Leon and calling Perry Farrell up onstage with Pearl Jam during a reportedly monstrous, festival headlining two-hour set. There were Brooklynites and Brits, Dave Matthews and Phoenix, The B-52s and Mos Def, John Paul Jones and Karen O. Basically there… More »

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 »

Reading & Leeds Festivals 2009 In Photos

This past weekend, bill-sharing fellows Reading and Leeds were tasked with distracting a nation still reeling from the death of its Oasis. Their secret weapons were unannounced sets by Them Crooked Vultures, the tweet-happy supergroup of Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones, and Josh Homme who introduced his band as "Michael Jackson" because he's so talentedMore »

Them Crooked Vultures’ “Elephants” Teaser

Thirty-seven seconds is better than no seconds, but it's time Grohl/Homme/Jones released a full studio track. Until then. 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 – “Elephants” (Live At Pukkelpop Festival)

This past weekend the Josh Homme/Dave Grohl/John Paul Jones supergroup Them Crooked Vultures did two festival gigs in Europe, including the "surprise" set which surprised nobody at Belgium's Pukkelpop. We're still waiting on the trio to stop playing coy and just confirm some details around their inevitable album already, but in the interim we'll just… 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 »
