It kills to be killer...



I am making this blog entry because of On The Record's Jim "Christmas" Carroll & his post about The Kills...
Well I'd like to add my two cents to this...
The absolutely-ridiculously-outrageously sexy & talented-as-fuck Alison "VV" Mosshart makes The Kills...
Sure Jamie "Hotel" Hince is a great guitarist and whatever but Mosshart's vocals and lyrics are brilliant.
You've got to love someone who openly discouraged smoking at any given opportunity and continuously condemned smokers for years on end, only to turn around a couple of years down the line and call herself a "chain smoking vegan"...
Take a bow Miss Mosshart, if it weren't for female musicians as gifted & skilled like yourself, then music would be boring testosterone fueled bullshit.
The Kills' live shows are not to be missed - you'll know what I mean when you see them live...
The album is out in March so there will be a Dublin show in Whelans or something around then more than likely...
Pre-empt the possible selling out of this gig by booking a ticket for the non-existent show this Christmas...

I'm not going to end with a download to one of their tunes...
Instead I am going to post the sexiest photograph of all time...

I know you always mean well when you make blog posts. but do you really like the kills or do you just fancy miss mosshart?

Pedro said...

No, I genuinely do like them. I'll admit I wasn't the biggest fan when their first record came out...but "No Wow" was a fantastic album. Sure I fancy Alison, but then again WHO DOESN'T?!? Not only is she fit, she is an amazing musician and a talented photographer/artist.

i'm not arguing that, she is a very pretty girl and if I was a lesbian then she'd be right up my street. except sometimes I don't know how much you actually like a band because the artist(s) involved always have a pretty girl in them. :)

Pedro said...

I'm sorry but does Tokyo Police Club have a girl in them?
What about Interpol? Glassjaw? Alexisonfire? City & Colour? Emanuel? Animal Collective? Cadence Weapon? Brand New?
No girls in any of the above examples and I love those bands.

that is a fair point. forget i said anything. i love the kills and am so excited about their new album.

What the fuck are you lying for Pedro? You only like them because she is smoking hot (no pun intended).

;D

Hardy Har Jackerino.
They're a fucking damn good band, regardless of what Mosshart looks like.

jack said...

I'm only playing. I got a photopass for their show a couple of years ago. I'll try dig out some pictures I took of them. I got to disagree though, Jamie is the man. What a fucking AWESOME guitarist..

I did like the last album, but found them rather disturbing to watch live though... they spent most of the gig thisclosetogether on stage, it was like a rather bizarre form of foreplay.

Pedro said...

Did up those photos Jack...

BackPedalBrakes - this is officially the best sentence ever:

they spent most of the gig thisclosetogether on stage...

:)

jack said...

backpedal, aren't the two of them together?

red said...

I'm with backpedalbrakes on the experience of watching them like- perhaps, like anon says, I was gay I'd have found it hot, instead I found it kind of awkward. Major of course thought it was a great show!

I think they were together when I saw them three years ago but isn't he shagging Kate Moss now? Oh dear, that's probably only going to increase your respect for them Pedro...I do genuinely hope the new stuff is good though. I loved the first album.

Pedro said...

Hahahahahahah!!!

Red, you're a legend.
Nah, Kate Moss is a fucking knacker. Never saw what everyone else sees in her.

red said...

Oh, whatever happened to the hot girl you were making a mix for?
What was the final tracklisting?
And where's your hot girls of the year post? Or are you doing it in installments?
No pressure like.

Pedro said...

I never made the CD in the end...
I gave up on that idea quite easily I'm afraid to say...
I settled for something easier and less time consuming but more impersonal.
:s

If I do a post of my ten hottest girls, I'll look like a sleaze.
:(
