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

VV is beautiful. It's too bad she doesn't live in pictures. Chain smoker. Kissing her would be like kissing an a** tray. That's right, that's not a typo. Back in the 90s, as a teenager I dated a girl who smoked. And her mouth tasted like a**. Her a** tasted like mouth. So I gave up kissing her mouth.

Incredibly underrated and criminally overlooked. Not only do they pull of some incredible, goose bump inducing covers, they have also managed to pull off an incredibly relevant sound with a hard edged blues aesthetic. Hotel's technique on the guitar does not get the credit it deserves, which is a crying shame, as he could more than easily hold his own with Dan Auerbach and Jack White.

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!

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.

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
