THE KILLS – Paradiso, Amsterdam – 21 October 2016

p1120497

Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince are back after five years. Still keeping on their mean side. Hard to describe the intense energy and the crushing dynamic they developed last Friday in the legendary Paradiso club in the centre of the tremendous city of Amsterdam, in The Netherlands. My most beloved venue – a converted former church building from the 19th century – where I saw so many great concerts over the past twenty years. A truly perfect location for the heated garage blues of THE KILLS. Perfect for Alison‘s staggering voice – really outstanding tonight – and her sensual snake moves. Perfect for Jamie‘s cracking guitar firework and his little dancy footsteps in the middle of the stage. And they clearly both loved it as much as the ecstatic crowd did. One of the most vibrant and hypnotizing gigs I witnessed all year. As I said it’s hard to reproduce the overwhelming magic of their performance with words. I’ll try with some pics & some live footage found on YouTube

Here’s opener of the set last Friday – Heart Of A Dog – from new album Ash & Ice (thanks to Harry Kempff). The sound is not perfect but you’ll surely get an idea of their fever…

And ‘Doing It To Death’ says even more about their magnetizing force (thanks to 666spunky666 ) last Friday…
