Indeed we love The Kills, but we love them ever more considering that they just did a cover version of Saul Williams’ ‘List of Demands (Reparations)’. It should be noted that we love Saul just as much as The Kills so in this case, it’s a win/win situation. The Kills have also shared the video for the song. Directed by Ben Strebel, the set-up resembles an interrogation of sorts with Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince facing one another in handcuffs. There are also chained inmates dancing with hooding over their heads, which typically reflects torture. The song is taken from a 7′ release by The Kills which includes a cover of Peter Tosh’s ‘Steppin’ Razor’. Have a look.
