Josh Homme’s label Rekords Rekords (website tagline: "starting a revolution against shitty rock") have teamed up with Domino to market and promote selected titles from the former’s catalogue. Thankfully they’ve decided to start with some of Homme’s own stuff, in particular his debut album with Queens Of The Stone Age.

The eponymous primer has undergone the whole remastered treatment and from ‘Regular John’’s throaty guitar growls onwards it packs even more roundhouses than before.

QOTSA Debut


The reissue also features three new tracks (or at least new to the album): the spacey ‘Spiders And Vinegaroons’ from the 1997 split Kyuss / QOTSA EP (released after the former band broke up), ‘The Bronze’ and ‘These Aren’t The Droids You’re Looking For’ (both from the 1998 split EP with Beaver called, helpfully, ‘Split EP’. All three are interestingly stuck into the album at various points rather than tacked on the end.

The album’s out next Monday (March 7th) on CD, double vinyl and download. Listen here - how do you think it's stood the test of time?
