I didn’t it was possible to make David Bowie’s “Suffragette City” more muscular, however the Horrors were able to put their own stamp on the classic. Read the rest of this entry »

The 2009 Mercury Prize list is long, but distinguished (fill in the Top Gun quote), however, unlike Thunderdome, twelve will enter, and only one will win. I like the first three on the list, and good luck to the rest of the nominees. Read the rest of this entry »
The lovely and talented Bree Davies took in the infamous show where a certain leading lady collapsed on stage. She was kind enough to contribute a concert review…
The Kills may be the last real rock n’ roll band left in existence, with proof lying in their Wednesday night performance at the Fox Theater in Boulder that ended with singer/guitarist/sex pot Allison Mosshart being carted off the hospital. Denver blog, Merry Swankster, reported Mosshart suffered from a cold and altitude sickness and is doing just fine.
The duo’s onstage one-foot-in-the-bedroom flirting barreled the audience over with brute force, a Midnight Boom-heavy set giving us tracks like “URA Fever,” “Kissy Kissy,” and “Cheap and Cheerful.” Mosshart prowled the empty space, dragging the mic stand about as her scary and gorgeous voice spilled out perfectly between erratic fits of coughing and smoking. The best description of her behavior during the short 30-minutes of show came from my friend Alex, who said Mosshart was like “a cross between Joan Jett and a wild, chain-smoking stallion.” Indeed.
I couldn’t help but feel a little ripped off by The Kills dwarfed set, but they still sounded filthy, beat heavy, alcohol saturated, and drug addled, Hince playing the perfect anchor to Mosshart’s volatile and delightful vocal conduct.
In truth, Mosshart should maybe consider stopping the drinking or the drugs or the smoking, or at least come up with something better than “altitude sickness” cover-up. Because I call bullshit on this one. Booze, coke and smokes was more likely the culprit, girlfriend.
