THIS MONTH: ‘No One Knows' Queens Of The Stone Age

Bald, bearded and brash, QOTSA’s bassist
Nick Oliveri was famous for his on
and
offstage antics - and also for his excellent,
inventive bass parts. On ‘No One Knows'
from the 2003 Dave Grohl-assisted album
Songs
For The
Deaf.
Oliveri delivers a meaty
line based around octaves and cool fills.
Aided by a thick, crunchy tone to die for, he then heads off into a simple
but supremely effective pedalled solo at the back end of the song, and all
while looking moodily into the camera for the video. What a chap! Of
course. Queens booted him out a bit later, but that’s another story.

, which sounds pretty intimidating
if you ask us. The new album.
Doctoring

is out in June and also features Swans,
Godflesh and Killing Joke drummer Ted
Parsons, so expect a fully headbanging aural
experience. Dub and ambient elements are
also present, making the project sound
like an opportunity for Edwin’s
considerable skills to shine.
