The Kills is a rock band formed by American singer Alison Mosshart ("VV") and British guitarist Jamie Hince ("Hotel").
Mosshart had been in the Florida punk band Discount and Hince in British rock band Scarfo. Whilst in Michigan, Alison went through 52 blank cassette tapes in her 4-track recorder. To let you know a little about the new record, we've included the track listing for you... Jamie HInce produced the record and Bill Skibbe co-produced. We drank all the red wine, watched VHS tapes on Vietnam, got blown down thte street by hurricane force winds, watched lightning storms, rode bicycles / crashed bicycles. We tried to BBQ and realized we weren't that way inclined. We recorded Blood Pressures at Key Club in the state of Michigan, with Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins. We finished the last few songs in London with our Michigan friends and Alison found a dog to borrow to have the studio to make things more "normal". When these groups disbanded, the duo, who first met when Mosshart heard Hince practicing in the hotel room above hers, struck up a songwriting partnership.
For months, the pair air mailed work tapes across the Atlantic; after this proved to test the patience of both artists, as it took days or weeks to get each others tapes, Mosshart upped sticks from her Florida home to fly to London.
Wanting to cut themselves off from their pasts, Mosshart and Hince considered their new project to be Year Zero in their careers, so they renamed themselves “VV” and “Hotel” respectively and began writing sparse, minimalist songs together with the aid of a drum machine.
In 2001 they showcased their new songs on a well received demo tape.
In true punk rock fashion, however, the pair shunned approaches from major record labels.
Recording as VV and Hotel, they contributed the song “Restaurant Blouse” to the compilation If the Twenty-First Century Did Not Exist, It Would Be Necessary to Invent It.
Shortly after this they recorded their debut release, the Black Rooster EP, which saw release on British indie label Domino Records and was picked up for distribution by Dim Mak Records in the United States.
