The first time I interviewed Josh Homme, I was 19 and we went shoe shopping in Camden before smoking through a pack of fags with Joey Castillo in the K-West Hotel. I'm pretty sure I almost died, both of happiness and of tar. Nearly seven years later, with their next new album, and without Joey Castillo, we spoke for 10 minutes over the phone. Times have a-changed, indeed. Read about the making of their album, Like Clockwork, over at Drowned in Sound.
