The Kills – Keep On Your Mean Side
The Kills are an English-American rock duo formed by American singer Alison “VV” Mosshart and English guitarist Jamie “Hotel” Hince. Mosshart and Hince both played in other bands before they formed The Kills in 2001 – Mosshart was previously the vocalist of punk rock band Discount, while Hince featured in rock bands such as Scarfo and Blyth Power. The band has cited Royal Trux, PJ Harvey, the Velvet Underground, Sleater-Kinney, Fugazi, The Clash, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Pixies, Bikini Kill, and Sonic Youth as influences. Keep on Your Mean Side is their debut album, released on March 10, 2003. Rolling Stone was complimentary, saying the music was “dark, kick-ass garage rock” and the album was “a bruising disc of post-modern blues”. AllMusic described it as “sneering, sexy blues-punk” that is “relatively fresh and distinctive”.
