With Queens Of The Stone Age seemingly in flux, Josh Homme’s murderous work ethic is focused on the Eagles Of Death Metal this month. Here, he’s unconvincingly disguised as Carlo Von Sexron in a “bluegrass stripper dance” band fronted by his old friend Jesse “The Devil” Hughes. Homme provides ticking drums and unsteady falsetto harmonies for this wicked, dumb?and misleadingly named?project, which references Devo, early ZZTop, T. Rex, Canned Heat and Some Girls-era Stones. Often shambolic and in-jokey, it’s also sensationally good fun. “That was magic,” whispers Hughes at the end of a rickety version of “Stuck In The Middle With You”. If they played your party, you’d be tempted to agree.
