Long-rumored superband Them Crooked Vultures, which personnel include Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, have finally come out, making their debut performance at club Metro in Wrigleyville, Chicago. During the August 9 gig, they performed eleven tracks, one of which was titled "New Fang".

Them Crooked Vultures consist of Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme on guitar and vocals, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on bass and Dave on drums. During their intimate concert at Metro, they were supported by Eleven's Alain Johannes who played rhythm guitar.

On why this new band chose to perform in Chicago, Josh told the concertgoers, "We could have done this in L.A." Then, he pantomimed a well-endowed woman performing a rude sexual act which made the crowd cheering wildly. "That's why we came here!" he said. "We came to Chicago because we wanted to play Metro!"

Following their live appearance at Metro, it is announced that "U.K. appearances are being considered for the near future, while an album is also expected to follow too." Unfortunately, the publicist for the band said, "There is no set release date as yet. I don't think there's an album title either."

Though details for the record remain under tight wraps, the effort is promised to contain "amazing" beats and sounds. "I'm not at liberty to talk about it - but I think [the project] is pretty f***ing amazing," Josh's wife, Spinnerette's Brody Dalle opened up to NME. "Just beats and sounds like you've never heard before."

Them Crooked Vultures' set list at Metro gig:

  1. "Elephant"
  2. "New Fang"
  3. "Scumbag Blues"
  4. "Dead End Friends"
  5. "Bandolier"
  6. "Mind Eraser (No Chaser)"
  7. "Gunman"
  8. "Daffodils"
  9. "Caligulove"
  10. "Warsaw"
  11. "Nobody Loves Me"
