Like the morning after the best night of your life, Sweethead, the new project of Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen is a potent reminder of the sheer thrills in after midnight, rock’n’roll decadence.

Best known for his participation in Queens Of The Stone Age, Van Leeuwen is joined by Serrina Sims, Norm Block on drums (Mark Lanegan Band, Plexi) and Eddie Nappi on bass (Mark Lanegan Band, Handsome) in his second ensemble.

Named after a Bowie B-side, Sweethead may well be a hit with purveyors of West Coast sultry rock as the band ride the star power of the vampish Sims, who belts out "her seedy glam tunes with a seductive assurance on par with Chrissie Hynde and Kleveland's Stephanie Smith.

'Slashed tires and a cut of vampires left you open to a right-wing malevolence,' she hisses enigmatically amid Van Leeuwen's seesawing chords and a sinisterly insistent Stooges piano lurking just below the waterline of 'The Great Disruptors.

' It's that modern rarity - a straight-up hard-rock song that's not ironic or stupid, infused instead with plenty of glittery atmosphere and sexual danger. Sims maintains her cool allure even on faster, punk-style rave-ups like 'We Turned Our Backs,' raising expectations all the higher for the album.

" - Falling James, LA Weekly.Produced by Troy, The Great Disruptors EP is like a night out on Hollywood Boulevard with a Jack and Coke in your hand; all rock and roll swagger and a fantastic taster of what's to expect on their forthcoming album, set for a November 2, 2009 release.

SWEETHEAD is Troy Van Leeuwen and Serrina Sims, with Norm Block and Eddie Nappi.
