“Them Crooked Vultures”…More than a Power Trio (Vids)


Earlier this month we told you about the new supergroup Them Crooked Vultures. Featuring John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters/Nirvana) and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) fans of rock & roll everywhere are foaming at the mouth.

The new band played their first show in Chicago on the Sunday after Lollapalooza at the Metro. They performed their second show last night (8/19) at the Melkweg in Amsterdam. As he did for the first gig, guitarist Alain Johannes joined the band for the entire show. A few videos have surfaced from the show last night. The quality is pretty poor, but it gives a nice taste of the power this band is sure to bring down upon hungry ears. Get a look at “Dead End Friends” here: (above)

~ When the first general news snippets, verifying the truth of the band’s mere existence, first started popping up; my inital thoughts were not much more than “that sounds pretty cool.” However, in the time span of less than a month, since playing thier first show in Chicago on Aug. 9th, along with the devoted coverage of the band over at www.antiquiet.com ; I have eargely searched for any and all info available on, or related to TCV. I will admit that it hasn’t been a long search, due to sheer lack of….eh…their only having played 2 shows   Nonetheless, based on just what what I have seen, compiled mostly of shaky to not so shaky hand cams across the web, I am still willing to bet the farm that we certainly have more than just a novelty power trio on our hands here. In fact, I haven’t been this excited for a new band since “Monsters of Folk”…wait a min…their full length has not yet (officially) been released either. Yes indeed, that last sentence, alone, serves as a personal reminder that summer is over, and that the annual music industry’s, “premier & release ’em if ya got em”, Fall season has definitely begun.
