i think they sound like a cross between the faint and shed seven. i'm trying to work out whether this is a good or a bad thing or if i even care. are these guys making waves stateside?

Only in the hipster blogosphere.

They're very good, though. I really like their new single.

edward o (edwardo), Friday, 21 May 2004 11:45 (seventeen years ago) link

Would this be a different band from Paul Dianno's Killers?

M Carty (mj_c), Friday, 21 May 2004 12:37 (seventeen years ago) link

There was a single knocking about in our living room. They seemed so promising on paper. Las Vegas! "Intricate lyrics"! A dark side! (This is all paraphrasing the press release) Expectations were high.

Then they sounded like Shed 7. Not killer.

Although it is quite amusing to imagine a group of lads in Las Vegas being all "God, it sucks round here. It's just so, like, plastic. It's just for the tourists. I bet in YORK there are REAL people who have the coolest time. God, man, I wish we lived in York."

lauren (laurenp), Friday, 21 May 2004 14:04 (seventeen years ago) link

for people the wrong side of 30, The Killers sound like an 80s band: The Immaculate Fools.

The Killers / Longwave / Stellastarr* = all US bands that plunder 80s epic Brit/ Irish big rock sound.

Cactus World News in the 80s were the masters of the big epic rock sound - these new bands fall way short of the blueprint.

DJ Martian (djmartian), Friday, 21 May 2004 14:10 (seventeen years ago) link

i had some mpfrees for a while but i rarely checked em out and when i lost the hard disk i didn't go search em out. so guess that answers the q.
nah. i didn't rate em. though i had big argie with someone from go beat about them - he loved em .. i didn't. so passions are obviously divided.

mark e (mark e), Friday, 21 May 2004 14:11 (seventeen years ago) link

hmm interesting martian. do you think these kids will have heard those bands? i really do hope they acknowledge shed7 as a big influence. the only reason i listened to the album all of the way through was precisely because they sounded like shed 7. i am still in shock about that really. they're not floating my boar really but to be honest i would rather have a few more singles like 'somebody told me' in the charts.

myke boomnoise (myke boomnoise), Friday, 21 May 2004 14:16 (seventeen years ago) link

They are dreadful. Their press sheet had them billed as "a cross between Duran Duran and Oasis" or something - FFS

DJ Mencap (DJ Mencap), Friday, 21 May 2004 14:23 (seventeen years ago) link

No it is highly unlikely that The Killers know about obscure 80s rock bands such as Cactus World News/ The Immaculate Fools/ The Opposition but I expect The Killers have listened to:

U2
The Psychedelic Furs


DJ Martian (djmartian), Friday, 21 May 2004 14:27 (seventeen years ago) link

Aren't these the lot touring with Morrissey?, apparantly he likes em - not sure what to make of that. They're coming over to Netherlands in a few weeks - may try and have a listen to some stuff before deciding whether to go.

Dean Birkett (Fynci), Friday, 21 May 2004 22:18 (seventeen years ago) link

The bridge bit on Somebody Told Me is alright, particularly when it's got the melodramatic synths on the second verse, but the chorus is just silly and the singer's voice is annoying.

They're American?!

Fergal (Ferg), Friday, 21 May 2004 22:24 (seventeen years ago) link

i think they're dull. they do sound slightly like my friends' band though (communique, who are better than the killers, certainly) so hopefully my friends can ride the radio wave after their record comes out.

kyle (akmonday), Friday, 21 May 2004 22:26 (seventeen years ago) link

i don't know anything at all about the band, but i like the mp3's i've had on my comp. for a while. that indie rock n roll song is the only real bad one.

i'm surprised they've managed to draw such polarising opinions from people. judging by their inoffensive style of music, i thought they would've been met largely with indifference or faint praise at best.

Mil, Saturday, 22 May 2004 00:25 (seventeen years ago) link

They have a good bass player.

Lukas (lukas), Saturday, 22 May 2004 02:59 (seventeen years ago) link

i think they're killer. actually, i'm kind of crazy about them, but several people i know (who i'm pretty sure aren't stupid) think they're as inspiring as warm milk, so who knows. the mysteries of music... and that "indie rock and roll" song is so gloriously queer i can't stand it.

stephin meritt wrote an article for the new york times featuring them called "music that's oh so stupid yet oh so smart" and i think that description is in the ballpark.

shut up, Saturday, 22 May 2004 06:39 (seventeen years ago) link

I hadn't even heard them until just now (I streamed the video for Somebody Told Me) and was pleasantly surprised. I would have been this band's biggest fan in high school...not that they cater to teens, but that I started high school in 1988.

Johnny Fever (johnny fever), Saturday, 22 May 2004 13:56 (seventeen years ago) link

Hm, they're a bit like Marion actually.

Fergal (Ferg), Saturday, 22 May 2004 15:16 (seventeen years ago) link

I hear this band name and think immediately of Satan's Fingers and The Hospital Bombers.

Ah, here is a Killers thread. So, hey how good am I in not starting a new one?

Oh, the album is well fine. Both my kids now go round singing "I've got a soul but I'm not a soldier" now. Which can only be a good thing.

The inclusion of the gospel choir in that song has to be the single most annoying thing I've heard all year.

No, wait, "Indie Rock & Roll" is.

Fergal OTM. They sound alot like Marion.

kinski (kinski), Monday, 21 June 2004 08:49 (seventeen years ago) link

Its more this thing of how the american bands that sound so much like britbands are the ones doing the business, more than the originals ever did.

The Killers bigger than Marion?
BRMC 'bigger' than JMC? (for a while)

Both bands are not undeserving, but are still 'lite' versions of the originals (although I don't know 'marion' enough to say they weren't 'lite')

mark grout (mark grout), Monday, 21 June 2004 08:55 (seventeen years ago) link

As I recall, Marion were kinda Joy Division lite....

Stewart Osborne (Stewart Osborne), Monday, 21 June 2004 10:52 (seventeen years ago) link

Bimble (bimble), Saturday, 24 July 2004 19:39 (seventeen years ago) link

here's a little thing i worked up a week or so ago for a blog that i decided not to bother with:

Global nuwave poprock, local media habits, my mom, me, & u

Hovering around 20 in the UK album charts is a drab pop-punky nu-wave band from Las Vegas named the Killers. . Apparently I need to crawl out from beneath the rock I live under, bcz I know this only bcz my mom sent me (as in: an envelope with a stamp on it, how quaint) (also, I was hoping it was a check) a clipping from the Des Moines Register’s style section from early July about them.

I grew up with the guitar player, Dave, in a small Iowa town. I wasn’t friends with him, but I knew him. He was quiet, and big into Smashing Pumpkins. You’d never know it from his current band but he could TOTALLY SHRED, too, such a shame. I went off to college and the last I heard he was jobbing in a Christian grunge band out of Newton. And now there he is with Strokes hair, a sportcoat, and tennis bracelets. They grow up so fast!

The online article has of course been ecto-trapped in the Register’s pay vaults, which is too bad, cos besides the obligatory local-boy-make-good angle I’d like for you all to see the hint of the contempt that the Des Moines media holds for Pella, the town I’m from. It’s not wholly accurate to describe Pella as an insular, conservative, religious community of Dutch Protestants, cos Dave and I are from there and are not that, but it’s fair enough. Pella is tacky and touristy as well (Register "critic" Kyle Munson sagely noted “omg, so is Vegas, weird!”), known state-wide for riding a theme-park version of its 19th cent. Dutch immigrant history to the bank every year. So poor nascent rockstar Dave had to answer eye-rollers like whether he’s ever worn wooden shoes and what his favorite pastries are. Well DUH of course he did; in grade school marching in the Tulip Time parades is MANDATORY. And Dave diplomatically mentions something from both the town’s bakeries, same as everyone else would. Don’t you media people know anything? More to the point, do you think that by broadcasting your dislike for this odd, churchy, nasty little burg you’ll somehow make living in fucking Des Moines any better? Get over it! (cue you: “yes geoff get over it”)

Now, if any other publication on earth had thought to ask a musician on his/her preferences in wooden footwear or pastry it would be a sorta-funny dadaist jab (and megawierd coincidence in Dave’s case, since he’d actually have an answer). But for the Register it’s just pro-forma and sad. See, I could win a Pulitzer or go to jail for planting an unsolicited kiss on Barack Obama (both are in the works, mind), and the Register would be on the phone asking a “Pella boy” about the klompen and the pofertjes.

Anyway I listened to a few clips on the Killers’ website and they suck. Good luck Dave!

"The Killers album is not perfect. However, it is clear to me that they piss all over Interpol and wipe the floor with the Strokes"

now that's funny.

having always found morrissey and merritt highly overrated i am pleased to hear of their being implicated in this horrible, horrible alterna-fiasco. it's hard for me to believe some of the praise isn't people joking around. this is probably the worst shit i have ever heard in my life and i'm not kidding.
the way he says "potential" or whatever in that video is full-on fucking hilarious.

Johnny Fever (johnny fever), Saturday, 24 July 2004 21:25 (seventeen years ago) link

"Let go of your anger!"

as another Dutch Protestant from the Southwest i'm afraid it simply will not be possible in this case. this is a transparent masquerade of a band, and though seeded in probably legitimate desperation, i will not personally be able get past the basic (and super-unsuccessful) ludicrousness of the approach.
i bet i like tons of stuff it will otherwise get lumped in with, but that always happens.
hey i also did happen to mention it's very, very funny... and meant it.

OTM. Though for me it falls in a strange void, great while I'm listening to it but not great enough that I'm actually going to listen to it. I should tell people in my house just to put it on occasionally.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 14 February 2021 15:12 (five months ago) link

i put some more jameson into my carcass and then posted this to the youtube electic blue cover comments. i think i'm pretty otm:

why is this awesome? it's awesome because it's true. brandon earned that smile at the end. there are more obscure songs to choose which could have shown his taste and erudition concerning forgotten culture and more obvious songs that SCREAMED i'm so 80s in a way that is still in the water today but this is the sweet spot - this is what the airwaves were like at the time. what, brandon was six when this came out?

icehouse fans, don't get me wrong, i'm not saying this is lesser 80s bobka. by way of example, on my computer, inxs' don't change shows up per algorithm on my screen. that's a great 80s song, also one of the best songs of all time. actually the greatest song of all time. brandon should cover that. it should be a constitutional amendment that brandon should cover that. however, anyone knows the greatness of don't change. electric blue, and go with me on this, some people weren't there at the time. or else they forgot. brandon has the genius to know, he knows.

what i'm saying, is some things are great because they are timeless, but timelessness loses out in the end because it belongs to everyone and to all times. this is so of its time, and we are edified when someone brings that time back into the light. thank you brandon for being that light.

a bit effusive, but i stand by my sentiment. duchamp says something something something abt an artist pointing at something and whatever. this was a great thing. it's a great thing.

slugbuggy, Sunday, 21 February 2021 07:04 (five months ago) link

brandon flowers is a cool dork. thrre are nerds, and geeks, but those are defined by their mastery. dorks are enthusiasts, they love love love things. the strokes were music nerds, they killers were music dorks. all hail the dorks.

slugbuggy, Sunday, 21 February 2021 07:20 (five months ago) link

it's like a duchamp readymade, the purest distillation of a readymade in the history of art. there it is, the thing. lookit. lookit the thing, it's awesome. did you lookit before? no, but lookit.

slugbuggy, Sunday, 21 February 2021 08:24 (five months ago) link

are you hiding, somewhere behind those eyes

goddam, that's so sweet and innocent. the best and most overlooked lyric in pop. bam! there it is. brandon delivers it like it was nothing.

also, heart emoticon to alfred, indisputably the greatest 80s stan in the known universe.

long story short: this caught my attention and i reacted favorably.

slugbuggy, Sunday, 21 February 2021 08:59 (five months ago) link

also it just occurred to me to look up don't change and the killers so there it is. did the best person in the world, brandon flowers, cover the best song in the world, don't change? it's as obvious as, randomly for example, i wondered if the best person in the world, kermit the frog, also covered the best song in the world, once in a lifetime. yes, they did.

that bruce version is very very declarative. list of current objectives: 1) don't change! now dammit!

i drunkendly went overboard with the effusiveness but brandon flowers is so my kind of people, it seems. i'm looking at the yuotubes, he also covers the whole of the moon and this charming man! what a fudging dork! right now i'm watching the glastonbury 2019 clip of the killers with pet shop boys always on my mind and brandon totally disappears. it's all psb, and as picasso says, good artists borrow, great artists steal, the greatestest artists just lay the eff back and let your referring to things happen as it happens and there it is as it always was.

mr brightside is like the torah: it's the essence of g dash d made visceral. what else is there from and of the aughts other than maps or hey ya! or maybe mgmt's kids that blows away all vestiges of temporal continuity and is of that time and that time alone? it's always mr brightside time, when mr brightside is playing.

brandon flowers inducted the cars into the r and r hall hall of fame and why not? what do any of rick's lyrics mean other than themselves? nothing. what do any of brandon's lyrics mean other than themselves? nothing. therein lies the essence of zen. banal relationship nothings, so beautiful, so forever.

It feels like it took several years for people (ok, me) to recognize the band's (Brandon's?) ridiculousness as a feature and not a bug. He seems to have figured it out a lot better than Bono ever did, balancing camp and pretentious grandiosity in a more convincing manner.
