Show Review

Guitar and vocals duo The Kills are back with a new video for their stripped down, bluesy track "Baby Says." The video follows a cross dresser in love with his nightly rituals. His routine starts with a shave and a little cocktail slinging, all while slowly getting into his night walking threads. Traveling from party to party, shooting pool, doing handspringsit's a wild night where the alcohol eventually takes its' toll. Inter-cut are looks of the band, looking androgynous themselves, playing a blue-lit house party in rock star fashion. Everyone is rocking out and swaying as they strum their guitars looking like grungy greasers in black sunglasses.

Artist Bio

The bluesy punk duo the Kills consists 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 supporting 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. Their second album, No Wow, arrived in 2005 and was an even dirtier, leaner collection of songs. Midnight Boom, the band's third album, was released this past March. - allmusic.com
