Them Crooked Vultures Are (a) Super (Group)

We've been hearing about Them Crooked Vultures—the rock 'n' roll wet dream project featuring Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and John Paul Jones—for months. Well, it's finally here, and it sounds like what you'd expect—lots of dirty blues riffs and Grohl beating his drum kit like it was a critic who reviewed the last four Foo Fighters records.

It's actually better than I thought it would be... of course, I went into it with zero expectations. So there ya go. The song "Scumbag Blues" is pretty good—I love Homme's falsetto, Jones' basslines are Zeppelin-esque, and Grohl kindly gets his Bonham on.

So what's next? A tour, of course. The Vultures will swoop into the Roseland Theater on Sunday to indulge in the bluesy jams inspired by that one band Jones used to play.
