What's with 2009's supergroups?
First we had The Dead Weather, now we have Them Crooked Vultures.
Well,they both have something to do with Queens Of The Stone Age.
Mr Josh Homme,after doing this excellent work for Arctic Monkeys,couldn't stand still.
He called his dear friend and in-times-bandmate,Dave Grohl,to do what he knows to do best ,and along with John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) on bass duties, they formed the supergroup called Them Crooked Vultures.
In fact,both Josh Homme and Dave Grohl had talked about this group in interviews a few years ago.But we didn't see anything coming.Now they have proved us wrong.
With Josh on guitars,there's no way that you won't recognise his riffs.
When i first heard about this,i thought "yeah!Songs For The Deaf N.2!".
But it is more into the Era Vulgaris era,which i didn't really enjoy.
Looks like i have a second chance now.Opening with "No One Love's Me & Neither Do I",you automatically get into the mood.
But not until "New Fang" drops in.This one is a fucking hit.Grooving,head banging,i don't know what else it is.
Don't imagine the whole album to be a kick in the teeth.
It even entagles dirty blues on "Scumbag Blues".
