More Them Crooked Vultures videos surface…

21 Aug

I know I am writing a lot about this band (even more so than their official website is) but I am very excited about the Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and John Paul Jones supergroup.

Anyway, they’ve now played three shows and things seem to be picking up somewhat. The first week, we had nothing but a link to buy a t-shirt. Now, slowly but surely, music is starting to appear and all of what I’ve heard sounds great. I can’t remember the last time I have even been so excited about something musical.

Here’s a couple of vids from YouTube of the band playing at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium (not perfect quality but you can still hear the awesome-ness):

And for those of you that want something more official:

I’ve also heard a lot of rumours that they are playing a show in London on Monday (August 24th) at Islington Academy, however, nothing has been confirmed by official sources as of yet. Should that turn out to be true, I am pretty sure that they will play Reading and Leeds next weekend too (28th, 29th and 30th).

Dave Grohl has often gone on record to say how much he loves Reading and was due to play a secret show with the Foos in 2007 but had to pull out due to illness. Let’s not forget the first ever UK Foo Fighters show was at Reading in 1995. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this happened again with Them Crooked Vultures – and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was way more chaotic. 

Watch this space as the saying goes.
