Queens Of The Stone Age lynchpin Josh Homme has produced a spooky remix of a Grinderman song. Spin reports that Homme bumped into Grinderman in an LA diner last year and they agreed upon a remix, facilitated by Grinderman producer Nick Launay.
Homme had a crack at the opening track to last year’s second Grinderman album ‘ ‘Mickey Mouse And The Goodbye Man’.
The remix is certainly odd, stripping back everything to a creepy click and multiple Nick Cave vocals before lurching into a skeletal version of the original.
Grinderman have already had songs remixed by UNKLE, Adam Freeland, Barry Adamson and more.
You can hear Homme’s effort streaming here under the name of ‘Mickey Bloody Mouse’.
It’ll be available to download digitally or to buy on 12-inch vinyl on June 14.
Queens of the Stoneage once performed an appendectomy backstage at one of their concerts. The ‘No One Knows’ rockers were forced to remove an unnamed female’s appendix after a show in Munich, Germany, and while they didn’t use anaesthetic to take the pain away, the impromptu operation was a success. Guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen recalled: ‘Do you wanna hear something f**ked up? There was one time when we performed an appendectomy, backstage. We forgot the anaesthesia. ‘ do know how to perform these operations, but I’d had too much to drink that day. But she’s okay. ‘t’s actually a legal matter- It’s a medical slash legal matter and I can’t say much more than that.’ Despite his claims, neither Troy nor any other members of the band – Josh Homme, Joey Castillo, Michael Shuman and Dean Fertita Â- are known to have any official medical qualifications. The group are also busy working on their sixth album, which Troy says it is being recorded at a relaxed pace. He added to website fasterlouder.com.au: ‘We’re a band that doesn’t push things, things naturally happen, and they are, and we’re kinda sprinkling this year with some touring and then doing some recording.’ Queen of the Stone Age announced earlier this week they will perform their first album in full on a string of dates in Australia and the US in March before a full European tour in May.
Josh Homme to release Queens of the Stoneage debut on own label. Josh Homme is planning on reviving his record label Rekords Rekords and plans on rereleasing Queens of the Stoneage’s 1998 self titled debut to get the party started. Coming up next will be Alain Johannes of QOTSA’s solo debut, ‘Spark’, which is a tribute to his late wife, QOTSA and Eleven keyboardist Natasha Shneider who died of cancer in 2008, followed by the second album by Mini Mansions, who feature QOTSA bassist Michael Shuman. In the past the label has released Josh Homme’s ‘Desert Sessions’ series, as well as The Eagles of Death Metal stuff. In Australia the label will be distributed by Liberator Music, part of the Mushroom Group, so the records will be readily available here. For more info, go to http://www.rekordsrekords.com/.
