Tell Us Something To Keep Us Trying

Speak to me of universal laws
The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
All around me people bleed
Speak to me your song of greed

Speak to me of your inner charm
Of how you’ll keep me safe from harm
I don’t think so, I don’t see
Speak to me of your inner peace

Little people at the amusement park
City people in the dark
Speak to us, send us a sign
Tell us something to keep us trying

The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
Too many people out of love
The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
The city’s ripped right to the core

Speak to me of heroin and speed
Of genocide and suicide, of syphilis and greed
Speak to me the language of love
The language of violence, the language of the heart
This isn’t the first time I’ve asked for money or love
Heaven and earth don’t ever mean enough

Speak to me of heroin and speed
Just give me something I can believe

The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
Too many people out of love
The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
This city’s ripped right to the core

As much as i love PJ Harveys original version of “The Whores Hustle…” i think Josh Homme’s cover is absolutely amazing. It doesn’t stray far from the original but there’s just something about his voice that gives his version a slight edge over the original. He recorded it during the last Desert Sessions (Volumes 9 and 10) and it appeared as a B-Side on the single release of “Crawl Home”.

Comfortable Is Creepy: A Preview Inside the Studio With Them Crooked Vultures

Comfortable Is Creepy

Comfortable Is Creepy

Them Crooked Vultures have released yet another teaser for the upcoming album. They’ve chosen to let our desperate ears listen to a little bit more of “Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I”. But this time instead of a 14 second clip of the music accompanied by three music minded vultures (crooked ones obviously) we get a peak inside the studio and 33 seconds of the song. It seems like we are being fed the song little by little, piece by piece……i reckon we’ll have got to the chorus by Christmas.

But it sounds like the wait will be worth it. Here’s hoping.

It’s all good and well that the Ginger Elvis is making new music in Them Crooked Vultures but lets hope he’s not forgot about QOTSA, we’re due something new off the Queens any month now.

Just as a little reminder for those of you who have forgotten just how good the noise is when messrs Homme and Grohl put their skulls together, here’s a classic piece of Josh Hommes riffery nicely bolted onto Dave Grohls pounding beats.

Them Crooked Vultures

Them Crooked Vultures T-ShirtThere were rumours in the early part of 2009 that Josh Homme and Dave Grohl had got together with John Paul Jones (of Led Zep fame) to create some unearthly sounds together. In fact, talk of the trio jamming together goes as far back as 2005 but it was only in July this year that it was revealed that the guys had been recording together in a studio in LA.  How they came up with the name “Them Crooked Vultures” i will never know but it certainly sounds fitting. With Homme on guitar and vocals, Jones on bass and Grohl on drums the recordings surely promise to be something very special indeed. All 3 have tasted success with their own bands in the past and Them Crooked Vultures will surely carry on that success rate.

The group performed their first show in Illnois on August 9th and have a show in Amsterdam lined up this Wednesday (August 19) night. Alain Johannes (Eleven, Mark Lanegan Band, QOTSA, Spinnerette) appeared on stage as a second guitarist at the Illnois gig and is likely to help out again at the Dutch show.

Them Crooked Vultures live @ Metro Chicago, Illnois (August 9)

Them Crooked Vultures live @ Metro Chicago, Illnois (August 9)

The set list for the Illnois gig was:-

Elephants
New Fangs
Scumbag Blues
Dead End Friends
Bandoliers
Mind Eraser
Gunman
Daffodils
Interlude w/Ludes
Caligulove
Warsaw
Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I

On August 12 the band released an official video on YouTube. It was a 14 second preview clip of the song “Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I”. See what you think for yourself.

There are also a few live video excerpts from the Illnois show on YouTube. The one below is the best quality i could find. I honsetly don’t know which tracks are which in the videos yet but apparently this one is a section of the track “Caligulove”. Enjoy.

The band are keeping their cards close to their chests and haven’t posted any music online yet. There is however a brand new t-shirt (pictured at the top of this post) available on their official website.
