Cultured Vultures


AS SUPERGROUP'S go, kryptonite couldn't keep this one down.
If you didn't already know about Them Crooked Vultures, the group are a three-piece made up of rock royalty Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and Jon Paul Jones - who between them have been in bands including Led Zeppelin, Queens Of The Stone Age, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Kyuss, Eagles Of Death Metal... the list goes on
And their debut album, Them Crooked Vultures, is, as you might expect, as rocky as a statue of Sylvester Stallone wearing boxing gloves.
Displaying this pedigree with a dirty, sweaty, scuzzy collection of angular Queens Of The Stoneage-style riffing and heads-down guitar noodling well exemplified by single New Fang and the mammoth Elephants, the LP is a blisteringly brilliant one.
Them Crooked Vultures is instant classic rock.
