A small piece of trivia about this: the backing track on the song "Covousier" is in fact one of the demo preset loops found on the Roland MC-505 Groovebox. I think this is quite funny in its lazyness, but since vol. 7&8 is such a good record and is in fact some of Josh Hommes finest work outside of Kyuss, I think we let them off for this scandolous piece of "song-taking", provided they promise to make their own cheesy backing track next time.
