The Kills – No Wow


The Kills – No Wow (2005)

I fucking love this group. Classic rock, nay punk! VV and Hotel, despite the odd names, manage to make one hell of a perfect racket!

This was their 2005 release and one of the albums of the year, no doubt!

The typically lazy and dumb music press always seem to compare The Kills to another boy/girl minimalist duo The White Stripes. Fuck that! The Kills are so much better than one trick ponies The White Stripes!

The image “https://i0.wp.com/i65.photobucket.com/albums/h226/coolhunkforu/KateMoss7.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.If you don’t know, the Kills are an Anglo-American combo formed by American vocalist Alison “VV” Mosshart and British guitarist Jamie “Hotel” Hince. In 2001 they first showcased their songs on demo.

It’s quite strange that Mosshart’s surname contains Moss and that she looks like Kate Moss. Wiereder yet, Hince has been dating said whackjob Kate Moss since late last year and apparently the two are set to wed!

No Wow, their second album, was released by Domino Records in February 2005. Featuring an artier, less guitar rock sound than their debut album – the excellent Keep on Your Mean Side – the record embraced post punk influences and sounded even more stripped down than Keep on Your Mean Side.

Originally written to be performed on a Moog, the band was forced to change directions and record it primarily using a guitar as its central instrument after Hince’s Moog broke and couldn’t be repaired before entering the studio.

The first single, “The Good Ones”, from No Wow, was released on 7 February 2005 and reached number 23 in the UK singles charts.

On their sophomore release, the Kills come on like a post-punk version of Robert Mitchum in The Night of the Hunter–with “hate” tattooed on one hand, “love” on the other. Lyrics reference the two to the extent that there’s even a song called “I Hate the Way You Love” (plus a slow version, “I Hate the Way You Love, Pt. 2”).

Similarly, VV (Alison Mosshart) sings like a cross between PJ Harvey and Christina Martinez (Boss Hog). And yet, despite lines like, “Get the guns out” (“Love is a Deserter”) and “Lost a lot of blood” (“At the Back of the Shell”), No Wow is too catchy to be a bummer (must be “love” asserting its presence).

VV and Hotel (Jamie Hince) make their songs move and groove with a minimum of fuss, mostly just some grubby guitar, unobtrusive drum machine, and Suicide-like electronic pulses. Mitchum would surely approve.
