Sweet dreams

Yes, it really did happen: the man who once released a single that reeled off a list of legal and not-so-legal intoxicants and that had a rather rude animated video turned up on CBeebies on Friday as the narrator of the Bedtime Story (Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's Zog). In truth, Josh Homme didn't look very comfortable and his delivery was more than a bit wooden, but at least we got to meet his toy dragon Snoop Bob Meatball.

Perhaps to mark the occasion, Homme's chum Iggy Pop played not one but two tracks from the first Desert Sessions album on his 6 Music show that night. While I've largely lost interest in Queens Of The Stone Age's recorded output, I'm keen to see American Valhalla, the film about Homme's collaboration with Iggy, Post Pop Depression - though I should probably actually get the album first...
