Eagles Of Death Metal Friday

730-x-362_eagles_of_death_metalThe fucking weekend is upon us brothers and sisters and what better way to reign that gigantic, slavering beast in than by indulging in some Eagles Of Goddamn Death Metal!

If you haven’t heard of them, do yourself a favour.

Beg, borrow, steal Peace, Love Death Metal. Put your earphones on. Let your brain make sweet love to that falsetto-heavy rock and roll, yeah!

After that, mosey on over to Death By Sexy for another ramrod-stiff dose of everything that is great about rock and roll, and then top it off with Heart-On while you lie there in a post-braingasmic stupor.

Are you picking up what I’m layin’ down?! Of course you aren’t, you have no IDEA who Eagles Of Death Metal are. Well, you better wise up party people, because these guys are coming to Oppikoppi this year to FUCK. SHIT. UP!



Why yes, that WAS Josh Homme, frontman from Queens Of The Stone Age you saw in that video playing drums like a total badass and no, it wasn’t just a cameo, HE IS THE DRUMMER OF THIS BAND.

“What?!” I hear you say, “I thought he was a guitarist, what the hell is a guitarist doing playing drums?!”

Well, I could ask you the same question for Dave Grohl – what the hell is a drummer doing playing guitar?

See, when a musician has so much goddamn raw talent, he often has to let it out through every instrument in the band, as is the case with maestros like Grohl and Homme.

Here’s more:



Ahhh yeeeaaaaahhhhh, now we’re starting to get into this motherfucking rock band, yeah!

Are we ready to take things to a whole other level of sexy? Yes? No?

Shit’s AWN!



So that’s all good and well. In studio and in videos they kick a whole lot of ass. But the important question is can they fuck shit up live?

Here’s one of my personal favourites, “Whorehoppin (Shit, Goddamn)’” to answer that question:



Huh. Funny, that didn’t look like Homme at the drum kit… I wonder if they tour with him?

I just took it for granted he’d be coming to SA with the band, but maybe I was wrong.

Anyone know if Homme will be jamming with the band in SA?

Hello? Is this thing on…?

Anyway, I hope you guys had as much fun digging that sheeit as I did posting it. Have a killer weekend party people, see ya same time, same place next week Winking smile
