By Will Oliver, August 9th 2017

Rock mainstays The Kills have been going at it for 15 years now, building a reputation for one of the fiercest live shows in the game. They celebrated their 15th anniversary with a special one-off show at Brooklyn Steel on July 21, following an opening performance for a special Guns ‘n Roses show at The Apollo the night before.

On February 14, The Kills played to a lucky crowd of about 100 people for a special Valentine’s Day performance at the historic Electric Lady Studios, the place where they recorded part of their 2016 album Ash & Ice (released via Domino Records).

The performance on V-Day was fitting for The Kills’ Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince, as they were celebrating 15 years of rocking out together as The Kills.

By Will Oliver, December 1st 2016


After catching Lucius at Central Park I made my West across Manhattan to catch The Kills performance at Terminal 5. The stop came in support of their latest album Ash & Ice which was released in June via Domino Records.

The duo of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince delivered a typically fierce performance that had the entire crowd eating out of their hand throughout the span of their fiery 18-song setlist.

Find the full setlist posted below, along with a gallery of photos from their performance.

The Kills at Governors Ball 2014

By Will Oliver, June 17th 2014


The duo of Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince, who you know better as The Kills is always a treat live. The two of them can create quite a ruckus on stage, a garage rock assault on the ears. These days their backed up by two pairs of stand up drummers who keep their sticks held above their heads in an X formation when they’re not pounding away.

For The Kills single release of “The Last Goodbye” they covered The Velvet Underground’s “Pale Blue Eyes”. It’s my personal favorite from The VU, and I’m glad that The Kills decided to give it a new look.

It gets all dirtied up with a gritty outlook that only Alison Mosshart could pull off. It’s a different version, but it gives a good song a cool new feel, and that’s the difference between a cover, and a damned good cover.

The single is available from Domino now. Stream their cover below.

[new] The Kills – DNA

By Will Oliver, March 11th 2011 — with 1 comment

The Kills are giving away new song “DNA” for free at their website. It’s taken from their new album Blood Pressures, which comes out April 5th via Domino Records. It’s a blues influenced rocker that has a dirty grind to it. Alison Mosshart has some of the sexiest female vocals around, and she puts them into good use on “DNA”. The chorus has a gothic appeal to it that is quite effective.

“DNA” will go well late at night when your buzz is in full effect. Give it a try:

Cherokee Death Cats – “Leech”

By Will Oliver, October 16th 2017

Aside from having one of the most striking band names we’ve come across is some while, Swedish outfit Cherokee Death Cats also have quite an energy in their brand of indie rock.

There’s a raw intensity to the tag team of Bea Persson and Rat Westlake’s loose but rocking demo for single “Leech” something like a cross between Savages, The Kills and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It’s a raw rough rocker in the best way possible, as it comes across as natural and real, not an overproduced bland piece of rock, something that we can certainly appreciate.

Take a listen to “Leech” below and stay tuned for more from Cherokee Death Cats very soon.
