Radiohead's opening night headline gig at Coachella 2017 – review
3 / 5 stars

Technical problems made for a stop-start affair, but even then everything was almost in its right place for the band

Queens of the Stone Age review – gonzoid riffage and hellacious swagger
5 / 5 stars

Wembley Arena, London
Tearing up the rulebook, rock’s last remaining outlaws create a visceral, vast and heavy sound that is scoured of machismo and full of wit

Queens of the Stone Age in London — macho swagger meets middle-age

Queens of the Stone Age made a manly racket at Wembley Arena. The volume was loud, bare-chested maniacs flailed in the moshpit, guitar licks were seared into songs like chargrilled marks on a bloody steak. Opening number “If I Had a Tail” had a big beast’s stomp, prefaced by guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen jangling a premonitory riff. “Animals in the midnight zone,” frontman Josh Homme sang, voice emerging from his sternum, words delivered with an Elvis sneer. Tall, solidly built, he wore a red shirt — not so much matador as victorious bull.

Over the past 20 years the Californians have developed into the most formidable hard rock act on the circuit. Founded by Homme in 1996, they understand that a core appeal of rock and roll is the opportunity to behave like a great dumb lunk. Their Wembley show was barely under way — T-shirts had yet to be ripped off and tossed in the air by members of the incipient moshpit — before Homme had issued a Ramones-like rhyme of “land of the free” and “lobotomy”. Rock and roll’s explosiveness should not be confused with rocket science.

But acting dumb is not the same as being dumb, as the juxtaposition of the next two tracks showed. “Monsters in the Parasol” was a cranium-battering three-chord anthem about Homme’s first LSD trip. Then came “My God Is the Sun”, a precisely engineered assembly of stop-start riffs, welded together with brain and brawn, during which Homme sang, employing a literary flourish, about being “an ant atop a spinning rock”.

Their latest album Villains was produced by pop’s premier escapist Mark Ronson but it comes freighted with Homme’s middle-aged awareness of mortality. “Feet Don’t Fail Me” began with murky gothic guitars before striking up the defiant strut of a forty-something risking his all on the dancefloor. “The Way You Used to Do” was set to a rapid buzzsaw riff, like an abrasive Morse code signal spelling out the message that time is running out. “C’est la vie,” Homme drawled decadently.

His swagger became bullying when he chided a security guard for policing the audience too zealously (“Remember, you work for me tonight”). But the frontman’s alpha-male persona was undercut by a macho kind of camp: his wiggling movements while playing guitar and singing were just a small prance away from the full tittup. His bandmates — Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita on guitar and keys, bassist Michael Shuman and drummer Jon Theodore — provided an immaculate backing, illuminated by a superb light show involving a mobile overhead rig and glowing upright sticks arranged around the stage.

Homme threw himself into the show. “The past is gone, this is all you ever get,” he told the audience during “No One Knows”. The centrepiece was “I Appear Missing”, an epic brooder inspired by a bout of serious illness suffered by Homme following knee surgery in 2011, which merged into the new album’s equally brooding “Villains of Circumstance”.

There was time for the moshpit to be driven into a final frenzy with a brutal pair of tracks in the encore, “Feel Good Hit of the Summer” and “A Song for the Dead”. However, the mayhem came with existential strings attached. “Life’s the study of dying,” Homme sang, before exiting the stage with a limp. Behind the bullish façade is a band of dark and fascinating depths.
