After playing Primal Scream’s ‘Miss Lucifer’, Homme said: “Jarvis has got good fill-in taste… Bobby and I had the pleasure of going out to the desert together and forgetting both of our names as we played music. I don’t think he’d ever seen it that dirty and hot before.”

Josh Homme recently spoke about the new Arctic Monkeys album ‘AM’, on which he appears. After Alex Turner contributed vocals and lyrics to the current Queens Of The Stone Age album ‘…Like Clockwork’, Homme returned the favour by contributing vocals to the band’s forthcoming fifth collection, due for release on September 9.

Speaking at the Rock For People festival at Hradec Kralove in the Czech Republic, Homme said: “I sang on the new Arctic Monkeys record. It’s a really cool, sexy after-midnight record. It’s called ‘AM’, so I guess that’s really obvious. And it’s really good. It’s really good. It’s not disco, but it’s like a modern, dancefloor sexy record. It’s really good.”
