The Kills : Now Wow

“ A raw immediacy that fits the band's tempestuousness and sexual tension “

What the….does anyone remember Alison the now singer of the Kills from like 4 or 5 years ago ???? Could Peter Macia be talking about the same gal ? http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/k/kills/no-wow.shtml

I can’t blame just Pitchfork for this but I would love to read a review, any review of a Kills cd where the writer is actually deeply disturbed by the transition Alison Mosshart has made from her days as the singer to Discount to now. She used to look like the round faced character Hopey from the Love and Rockets comic book and now she looks like Jennifer Herrema from Royal Trux aka a heroin sheik dirt rocker meets super model.

How many people get to do a total 180 and still be a press darling ? That kind of voodoo deserves a 9.99999999 in my devil-woman handbook.
