Them Crooked Vultures may make U.K. debut as early as tonight

The new supergroup involving John Paul Jones has been on a European tour, with last week's concert itinerary consisting of one club appearance and two festivals.

Them Crooked Vultures now appears set to repeat the pattern in Jones's home country.

The band has been rumored to be playing a surprise set at Brixton Academy tonight and turning up at both the Reading and Leeds festivals this weekend.

(Update: Tonight's rumored gig has now been confirmed as per updated Google Earth imagery on the band's official Web site.)

Tonight's gig has been rumored as an opening slot for the Arctic Monkeys, which is scheduled to perform a sold-out show at the London venue. Online music media such as Spinner, Gigwise and -- plus the British journalists behind, the Times Online and MTV UK -- have reported the rumors of tonight's appearance by Them Crooked Vultures.

Last week, the band shifted its approach as to fan-shot footage of its concerts. Just days after the removal of multiple YouTube videos was attributed to the band's Josh Homme, the band began using its own online applications to publicize some amateur footage of complete Them Crooked Vultures songs played in concert.

This started just after the band's Aug. 19 upload of 33 seconds of video footage of the band hanging out in the studio, with the audio backdrop of portions of their song "Nobody Loves Me and Neither Do I."

Several videos of Them Crooked Vultures can be viewed here.
