Queens Of The Stone Age: Queens Of The Stone Age (re-issue/indie edition/orange) LP
Orange wax! Hatched in the deserts of Palm Springs, CA, the origins of Queens of the Stone Age can be traced to their hard and dusty teenage band Kyuss who gained a rep for slaying crowds with their hypnotic buzz rocking anthems. Homme flirted with joining Screaming Trees for a while before creating his ideal project, basing the sound on a fusion of Krautrock, and metal and futuristic country music. The project's self-titled 1991 debut featured Homme, Nick Oliveri and guitarist Dave Catching, with brief membership behind the drums falling to Alfredo Hernandez. The landmark debut from Queens of the Stone Age is back in print for the first time in 10 years, restored to its original sequence with the original, long out-of-print artwork by Frank Kozik. The reissue also includes an obi-strip designed by longtime collaborator Boneface.
