On the show this time, it’s a stripped-down performance from post-garage rockers The Kills.

The Kills met back in the late '90s when singer Alison Mosshart was staying in London during a tour with a previous band and met her upstairs neighbor Jamie Hince. She loved his guitar playing and insisted that they be in a band together. That didn’t happen right away, but they kept in touch and began writing together and sharing 4-track demos of stuff, from when they were apart. Once her band broke up, Alison moved to London, and the band that would become The Kills formed in 2001, recording as VV and Hotel until they picked the band name. They play hard-hitting heavy music, with one foot in bluesy garage rock, the other in epic cinematic noir-pop. It’s glitzy and dirty and always so dang cool. Their latest album is God Games and it is available on Domino.
