Little Bastards THE KILLS Put A Spell On You…

4 November 2020

One of my all-time favorite bands THE KILLS release a career-spanning
B-sides/rarities
collection, including also covers and stray-runoffs, on
11th December. Pre-order facilities here.

The compilation is titled LITTLE BASTARDS which was the
nickname for the drum machine the duo used in the early days.

“It was a Roland 880 which isn’t strictly a drum machine. It’s a sequencer,
and an eight-track recorder, with its own drum machine built in, and that’s
what we’d record all our beats on”
says Jamie Hince.

After sharing, a few weeks back, a demo of a 2009 song called Raise Me
(hear below) we get the pair’s version of I PUT A SPELL ON YOU, the 1956
classic which was written by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and made famous by
Marvin Gaye
and Creedence Clearwater Water.

C’mon bastards…
