Josh Homme is a poet, and he does, in fact, know it.
As Homme explains, he recorded the readings back in November 2015, when he was feeling sick
“I was ill, stuck in bed & feeling restless; however, there was bright side,” Homme recalls. “It had transformed my voice by lowering it. Making me sound like a radio performer for almost an entire day. I seized the baritone opportunity & did readings of a handful of poems I’d written.”
Of note: two lines from “Where the Fog Begins” are featured in the Queens song “Head Like a Haunted House,” a cut off the bands most recent album, 2017’s Villains.
