Thisi from CMU:
Following the split with band mate Nick Oliveri last month, Queen of the
Stone Age’s Josh Homme has told MTV that – with some people doubting he can
function without his former creative partner – he is determined to produce “the best shit I’ve ever written”.
Homme: “I gotta be honest. I knew this [split with Oliveri] was coming, so I
wrote everything by myself. And it’s the best shit I’ve ever written. My tank has been fuelled by people saying I couldn’t do it, and I’m gonna show them they’re dead wrong. It reminds me of the same, trancey emptiness of the first Queens record. It’s no accident everything has come full circle. There’s lots of repetition with falsetto melodies over the top. I want people to shake their ass and shut their eyes and just trance out. I want to move people and get the hairs on their arms to stand up.”
