Listen: Josh Homme Remixes Grinderman

Written by Barnaby Smith on May 12, 2011

Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age has put his remixing hat on and gone after Grinderman.

The singer and guitarist has taken his tools to the song Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man, which was the first track on the second album from Nick Cave, Warren Ellis and the chaps, released last year.

Spin reports that Homme has given the track an even spookier twist than it had in the first place, and you can hear the strange new interpretation over at that website.

Homme reportedly bumped into Grinderman in a Los Angeles diner after a show from the Australian band last year, which inspired the idea. Grinderman’s producer, Nick Launay, helped to make it happen, while Cave and Ellis et al are said to be ‘very happy’ with the new version, which is really quite an unpleasant thing, but engrossing at the same time. The track will be available as a download on June 14 as well as 12″ vinyl.

Homme joins the likes of UNKLE, Adam Freeland, Barry Adamson, Factory Floor and Andrew Weatherall.

Homme has been quite busy with little projects recently, another one being the song he contributed as the theme to the Adult Swim cartoon, Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
