In some parallel, '70s-groove-askew universe it's Eagles of Death Metal who are the superstars, not merely the studiously dizzy spin-off of Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and his palm desert school chum / lapsed journalist Jesse Hughes. Building forcefully on the charms of their '04 debut, their camaraderie foregoes ego (Queens of the Stone Age mainstay Homme is Eagles of Death Metal's drummer, pal Hughes its falsetto-voiced, ax-slinging rock star) for a retro, ambitiously garage-rock-meets-boogie-down ethos that labours under the delightfully perverse misconception that the New York Dolls, Hot Chocolate andT-Rex were all actually the same band - one that Muddy Waters and the big bopper occasionally sat in with. Less demented talents have pumped similar shtick full of self-conscious irony; here Homme and Hughes simply grab it by the neck and shake furiously, yielding I Gotta Feeling'sBolan boogie, the Stones-ish I Like To Move... and Dolls-swaggering Keep Your Head Up, before moving onto such enticing genre demolition derby entries as Ballad of Queen Bee and Baby Duck, Chase the Devil and the giddy Shasta Beast.
