    Jinkies. What sounds like a caper straight out of
    Scooby-Doo is unfortunately a mysterious reality for UK darlings The Kills. The duo was on the Austin, TX leg of their tour when
    their entire bus (including their driver, Brian Berkenkemper) vanished without a trace.

    Per the band's website:

    "OUR BUS DRIVER IS MISSING AND/OR HURT/DEAD/or A THIEF. OUR BUS HAS DISAPPEARED. How can 3 tons of black metal vanish into thin air? Im asking myself the same fucking question."

    Two words: Chris Angel. The tricks and douche-baggery have gone too far. I wouldn't be surprised if he was also responsible for ruining the economy.

    But in all seriousness, anyone with information regarding Berkenkemper or the Ziggy/Prevost tour bus (license plate#: TN 0305) is urged to call or email Nick, the Kills' guitar tech and stage manager, at 313-605-2505,, or

    We're pulling for a safe and easy resolution in the very near future. In the meantime though, check out The Kills' mind numbing performance from SXSW earlier this year. Let's hope they get their gear back soon. - chris gayomali
