Episode 132 – The Kills 101

Keep on your mean side, listeners – the Third Men Podcast is about to do it to death! This week we’re getting an education, and the topic is one of the most seminal bands in modern rock: THE KILLS! Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince have been dropping jaws around the world for well over a decade now, with their blend of guitar-shredding, Plant-belting, synthesizer-concocting, heart-wrenching rock’n’roll – with five studio albums and a slew of EPs and singles to their name. Jack White fans (who weren’t already familiar with the band) got to know Alison Mosshart as lead singer of The Dead Weather, as well as through a host of collaborations between The Kills and the Third Man world ever since. This week your humble co-hosts are bringing in a Kills super-fan, Mr. Josh Akin, to walk us all through the band’s history, discography and assorted haberdashery from their avant-garde beginnings to the powerhouse beats the band pumps out today. This December, The Kills are offering up a NEW LP collection of b-sides and rarities called LITTLE BASTARDS, and what better prep for this new release than with a history lesson from the Third Men? We’re loyal, oh-oh! We’re loyal, oh-oh! We’re loyal, oh-oh! We’ve got the heart of a pod!
