We’ve been wary of over-covering Them Crooked Vultures, the most buzzworthy new band that can’t suck since The Dead Weather. In case you’ve been living under a cactus, The Vultures are Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl of Nirvana / Foo Fighters, and John Paul Jones of Led Motherfucking Zeppelin.
But there’s new news to report. Of course we wish it included word on when you can get your hands on an actual song or album, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to sink your fat beaks into.
There have been two promo videos posted since the in-studio clip of Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I; one featuring more studio footage, set to Elephants…
…and more recently, an animated clip set to Scumbag Blues:
