The Kills

The bluesy punk duo the Kills consist of vocalist/guitarist VV, aka Alison Mosshart, formerly of the Florida punk band Discount, and drummer/guitarist/vocalist Hotel, aka Jamie Hince. After Discount ended in 2000, VV began exchanging tapes with the London-based Hotel through the mail, but both of them felt hindered by this method, so VV crossed the Atlantic so the duo could write faster. In spring of 2001, they issued a self-released demo that showcased their gritty, sexy sound and earned favorable reviews from such quarters as TapeOp Magazine. They also contributed a song, "Restaurant Blouse," to 5 Rue Christine's If the Twenty-First Century Did Not Exist It Would Be Necessary to Invent It compilation early in 2002, before their debut EP, Black Rooster, arrived that summer on Dim Mak.

Along with gigs at the London and Glasgow LadyFests and tour dates alongside Le Tigre, the Kills also toured the U.S. for eight weeks before returning to London to finish their first full-length album, Keep on Your Mean Side, which was released by Rough Trade in spring 2003. A second album, No Wow, arrived in 2005 and was an even dirtier, leaner collection of songs. The Kills retooled their sound for 2008's Midnight Boom, mixing more electronic beats and pop hooks into their punky bedrock.

While touring alongside the Raconteurs in support of Midnight Boom, Mosshart struck up a friendship with frontman Jack White, prompting the two to form a supergroup, the Dead Weather, in 2009. The Kills took a short break while the Dead Weather worked feverishly, issuing two albums in ten months and touring behind both. Blood Pressures brought the hiatus to an end in 2011. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Time aint gonna cure you honey!
Love the kills! Just listened to them for the first time today!
you like this band, you will love my band Mountains of Teenage Girl Turds
Just glad that The Dead Weather and The Kills can both be so good and have distinctivel y different sounds. Would be happy to see Alison/VV collaborate with Jack White on his next solo. She could become an honorary Peacock or something!
Great band
they are awesome live. saw them and was up front and almost no one was there! ( was years ago!)
Was big time into The Kills about ten years ago...we rode in on the same dirty horse.

The Kills = AMAZING!
I don't understand how any fans of indie rock couldn't find this band's music appealing. Groups such as The Xx are more popular even though they have many similarities and it's mainly due to their electro-rhyt h m s , soft and beautiful whisper-sing i n g , and pop music qualities.
Love the kills. I like the 98 degree comments.
Addicted to The Kills have no problem with those that don't get it but I am completely obsessed!!!!
Love em.

Saw these guys live in SF in August!! It was great :)
Don't be mean. I do see the similarities with Throwing Muses, but there is a pretty heavy distinction and they're both awesome. And Mosshart doesnt really sound like Hirsch
I THOUGHT SINGER WAS KRISTEN HIRSCH OF THROWING MUSES.. WOW... WHAT A COPY CAT THIEF - GO LISTEN TO THE REAL THING = THROWING MUSES - THIS IS AMATEUR

Back when my family lived in Nashville, my mom was hanging out with Alison and Jamie at our house. Sadly, I was four and sleeping over at my grandparents ' house. I freaking love this band.

Genius.
Some people should just stick to listening to 98 Degrees and Limp Bizkit.
They must be a whole lot better in person because recorded they blow!!!! I can name several reasons why they're crappy but I'm gonna be nice.
Saw em Saturday
The new album is stellar.
God I love them. They are great live in concert. Seeing then in NYC was Great!!!!!

I want to sit around and smoke cigarette after cigarette with Alison FOREVER. She is incredible live, I've seen her with The Dead Weather and I was blown away. I am a huge Kills fan and hope they tour the states again...and SOON!
Alison is great! I've seen her once as The Kills, and twice with Dead Weather.... I hear she's putting together more music for another Kills release next year maybe...
