The Kills - Little Bastards CD/2LP
The Kills have compiled an extraordinary career spanning b-sides and rarities album titled, appropriately, "Little Bastards". The songs date back from the band’s first 7-inch singles in 2002 through to 2009. All of the material has been newly remastered for release and marks the first ever vinyl pressing for some of these tracks.
The compilation includes the unreleased and never-before-heard demo Raise Me from the 2008-2009 "Midnight Boom" era. Other highlights include I Call It Art from the Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited covers compilation, the brilliant Midnight Boom digital bonus track Night Train, a blistering performance of Love Is A Deserter from an XFM radio session and a handful of classic American roots songs performed with the kind of bruising delivery they’re famous for: Howlin’ Wolfs’ Forty Four, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ I Put A Spell on You and Dock Boggs’ Sugar Baby.
