Aural Fixation: Meet supergroup Them Crooked Vultures

Posted by at 1:47PM

Welcome to the first installment of Aural Fixation, the Unofficial way to stay abreast of musical goings-on in the Bay Area and beyond.
Them Crooked Vultures is what you get when you combine the bassist from Led Zeppelin, the drummer from Nirvana, and the guitarist from Queens of the Stone Age. If you enjoy bluesy and soul-crushing rock music, then this convergence should be a serious cause for celebration. John Paul Jones (bass), Dave Grohl (drums), and Josh Homme (guitar) aren’t doing anything revolutionary, but they’re laying down some heavy music and doing it quite well.
Their self-titled debut album is due out November 17th, but they’ve generously allowed the album to be streamed in its entirety in advance of the official album release. Them Crooked Vultures will be also landing in the Bay Area next Thursday the 19th for a show at Oakland’s Fox Theater. Check out the album at
