Josh Homme Narrated ‘Lo Sound Desert’, A Film About The Cali Desert Rock Scene

Written by Sam Murphy on July 18, 2016

Here’s something to get stuck into while we patiently await Queens Of The Stone Age‘s next album, a documentary narrated by frontman Josh Homme.

The documentary Lo Sound Desert is about the DIY Californian desert rock scene of the ’90s and has been in production for almost 10 years. The scene was originally started by ’80s punk bands and eventually led to the creation of bands like Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age.

Given that Homme was in both of those bands, it’s fitting that he narrates the doco which is available to rent or buy right now.

Homme isn’t the only person narrating it though. Members of Kyuss, Queens Of The Stone Age, Yawning Man, Fatso Jetson, Mondo Generator and more also tell the untold story.

“In a way Desert Rock never reached extreme popularity like simultaneously grown, commercially hyped Grunge Rock in the early 90’s,” the bio of the movie reads.

“But it still seems to be around and inspires new generations of rock bands to carry on.”

While many are familiar with Queens Of The Stone Age and even their origins, the story of the scene as a whole may be one that you’ve never come across before.

It’s been directed by filmmaker Joerg Steineck who previously directed a movie about Swedish rockers Truckfighters and also was behind the film Welcome To Tijuana about the South-American refugee crisis.
