Horrorpops – Kiss Kiss Kill Kill

March 17, 2008

horrorpopsA little bit punk, a little bit ska, a little bit new wave and a lot psychobilly, it’s the new Horrorpops album, Kiss Kiss Kill Kill, which finds the Danish band in fine form. Patricia Day sounds alternately fierce and alluring on lead vocals while also playing a mean upright bass guitar, and there’s some stellar guitarwork from Nekroman and ace drumming from Neidermeyer. Kiss Kiss Kill Kill, the Russ Meyeresque album title, hints at the general movie theme here, though “Boot2Boot,” an angry protest song about the closing of a punk club last year in their native Copenhagen is a temporary departure from it. The band sounds freshly inspired with this one, which makes the 40 minute running time blow by. Standout cuts: “Missfit,” “Boot2Boot,” “Heading For The Disco” and “Hitchcock Starlet.”
