The Kills | RUG282 | Released: 03/03/08
Cheap & Cheerful, two and a half minutes of rock ‘n’ roll abandon, is released on March 3rd 2008. The production, featuring beats and studio smarts from Spank Rock’s producer Alex Epton aka Armani XXXchange, combined with Alison’s confidently teasing vocals, create a forward-thinking track - daring you to take it on right now. Taking inspiration from Pizza Pizza Daddio, a Sixties documentary about kids in inner-city schools in the USA, The Kills’ Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart started building rhythms influenced by the children’s dark playground songs, on an old school hand-punched MPC-60 hip hop drum sequencer. The end result is a track that takes you right to the heat of the moment - both timeless and utterly contemporary.
