Tired of letting Queens of the Stone Age steal their schtick, Chicago ’90s alt-radio/Pulp Fiction darlings Urge Overkill reunited in 2004 to hawk their light take on hard rock with sarcastic vocals. To boot, they’ve also been working on a new album for the last year or so. The reason it’s taking so long, we can only imagine, is choosing the right Neil Diamond cover to kick-start their career but, judging from early reports from Quentin Tarantino, they’ll be a woman soon. With Tigers & Monkeys and Appomattox.
