Smoke Notes

"Once upon a time rock 'n' roll was all about the sex you really shouldn't have. The Kills haven't forgotten." (Q Magazine). Amidst a U.S., New Zealand and Swedish garage-punk explosion, The Kills are ready to make some noise for Britain. With one self-recorded EP release - a raw, trashy five-song debut called Black Rooster - the London two piece now offer up their fantastic debut long player 'Keep on Your Mean Side'. Away from the plethora of column inches and the crushingly inevitable forecasts of megastardom that follow, let's look at the facts about The Kills. There are two of them: Alison Mosshart, former singer in Californian minor league pop-punkers Discount, and Jamie Hince, previously of indie hopefuls Scarfo. Mosshart now goes by the name VV, while Hince calls himself Hotel. And the two of them together make the most unholy racket with only the aid of guitars and a drum machine. Fresh from a tour supporting fellow critical darlings the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the spotlight is now falling entirely on The Kills. It's a messy music, the aural equivalent of waking up alone in a dingy bed, in soiled sheets, having thrown-up the previous night's consumption of intoxicating substances. Forget t.A.T.u. and Kylie, in 2003 The Kills are the only artists offering 21st century sex and longing set to music. It ain't pretty, but then the true blues never have been, and when you have an album that solicits easy comparisons with the likes of PJ Harvey, Royal Trux, The Jesus And Marychain, Velvet Underground, plus current faves The White Stripes and Raveonettes who frankly cares. Recommended dirty ass rawk 'n' roll.
