Another Throwback Thursday review: Horrorpops – Kiss Kiss Kill Kill (2008)
“Kiss Kiss Kill Kill” is the third album from the Danish psychobilly trio Horrorpops. Stripped down to the original three members, lead singer and upright bassist Patricia Day leads the band through 12 dramatic tunes that are, as the cover states, “tales about love and murder.”
The Horrorpops manage to break away from the gothic protocols of their genre and tackle more emotional and caustic topics. Kim Nekroman’s infectious guitar riffs and Patricia Day’s one of a kind voice kick off the album with “Thelma & Louise” . The track sets the tone for the whole album by introducing the crime noir aspect that weaves through the album on tracks like “Kiss Kiss Kill Kill” and “Highway 55.” The bands stripped down sound is perfectly suited for “Boot2Boot” a deeply personal track about the destruction of an anarcho-punk squat by the Coppenhagen police in 2007.
It’s easy to see that the Horrorpops are looking to the future by broadening and evolving the bands already sonic offerings. Nothing sounds like the Horrorpops and that individuality should keep them at the top of the Punk Rock mountain.
