Them Crooked Vultures: Mind Eraser, No Chaser

18 Apr

I have an odd musical soft-spot for any band that includes Josh Homme: it must be a mixture of the fact that he’s one of the nice men of rock and the fact that all his projects are heavy but at the same time melodic and well-measured (well, Eagles of Death Metal aren’t all there but we’ll overlook that one). This is the new single from his supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, and it’s a real grower. After a few plays you start to like its tunes and the lyrics… But the real treat is the little comedy horn section right at the end of the song. It’s worth it just for that alone!

    There you go, head banging like a person possessed, then suddenly you’re holding imaginary braces and swaying left and right as the comedy horns (Tubas, maybe?) kick in at the end… niiiiiiice!
