HEAD HERE FOR THEM CROOKED VULTURES TOUR NEWS!

Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones have settled on a name for their burgeoning supergroup: Them Crooked Vultures. As reported on FL last month, the trio of heavyweights have set up in a Los Angeles studio to record a debut record. The potential for rock – œn roll greatness is so high we had to fast-track it to FL’s 30 Most Anticipated Albums.

Adding to the intrigue, there are already shows on the cards. Them Crooked Vultures are locked in to play an intimate venue in Chicago this very weekend, with UK dates expected to follow. The band has launched a sparse new website and Twitter feed, but there’s precious little around to suggest when we’ll get to hear their handiwork. At least we know it’s full steam ahead.

I've got a suspicion that it is going to be average. But I do live in hop.

If this is as big a letdown as The Dead Weather I will lose all faith in supergroups.

jpol said on the 6th Aug, 2009

they havent mentioned anything about who's singing, no. Grohl's definitely drumming.

Oh, to have a photographer/reviewer in America...

doubtfulsounds said on the 6th Aug, 2009

they should do it as an instrumental 3-piece.. no singing, or very minimal vocals if any... focus on the groove, especially as Homme's guitar playing is so rhythmic too.

The style of music on the album is going to be Khoomii.

Can't wait.

That sounded like a group of 16 year olds who'd all been given instruments for Christmas.

*Note to all: It appears as though the promotional videos posted on YouTube were fake. The name of the album is fake, the release date is fake and the album cover is fake. This was all part of the greatest hoax in recent music history (which I was not aware of). That being said, the band does exist and they are playing a show this Sunday in Chicago.

by the sound of the reviews on the rr forums sound like a gig was a blast 'realy heavy bluesy sound' and heaps of other muso's there like danny carey. :)

Unless of course, Josh Homme is trying to build awareness for Redheadday.

I missed them at pukkelpop, went to see grizzly bear instead, but I caught them last weekend at Reading, just sounds like a more serious/less fun version of queens..
