Seventy thousand copies of the debut album by Them Crooked Vultures sold in the United States in its first week of release, Billboard reports this morning. This lands the new group on the magazine's album chart in the No. 12 position.
There's one other Jones in front of John Paul Jones: Norah Jones. No relation.
In other news, a source called California on the band's official forum reports having attended the "New Fang" video shoot, which was said to have been under the direction of Paul Minor of Streetgang Films. California writes:
Just left the video shoot for New Fang, which at this moment is still being shot in the LA area, and wanted to let all the fans know that the bands live performance is nothing short of amazing. Every single take went off without a hitch from the bands perspective… not once did they have to cut due to any mistakes/faux pas from the band members. They are so polished! The video itself looks like it is going to be fantastic, shot in a studio with just the band members playing and being shot from varying angles. Thats all I got, just thought I’d share it with you all.The group posted a picture from the video shoot, of a costumed Dave Grohl, on its Twitter page last night, seen here at right.
