The Kills

Cheap And Cheerful

The Kills
Following the misfire of their disappointing second album ‘No Wow’ VV and Hotel (er, Alison Mossheart and some bloke called Jamie Hince) fled to Mexico before hooking up with producer Armani XXXChange of Philly perv-rap heroes Spank Rock. It’s an inspired match – they provide the growly guitars and the obligatory have-they-or-haven’t-they sexual tension and Armani backs it all up with a military tattoo that’d put the the Coldstream Guards Band to shame. And look – we made it to the end of the review without mentioning Kate Moss. Oh damn.
