THE FUCKIN' KILL!


So this weekend sees one of the most anticipated grind shows in Melbourne's history with the return to the stage of The Kill. This return sees the band with new vocalist Nik, also of Super Fun Happy Slide.
It has been a few of years since I saw the unit of Jay (also of Fuck... I'm Dead, Identity Theft and Mid Youth Crisis, Open Wound etc.), Robbie (ex-Open Wound) and Neil (Undinism) play. Seeing this band with Neil as the vocalist was a terrifying experience, alway intense and often blood soaked. I have seen many a person flee a venue or vomit their dinner mid way through a set of The Kills blast ridden, riff-shredding, blood jetting performance.
After parting ways with Neil, Tony from Blood Duster gave vocal duties a bit of a whirl but that was a short lived line-up. The new line up is looking to be pretty killer Nik is a talented lad, though I think the blood-letting spectacle may be all in the past now so we will have to make do with the ultra-blasting and riff destruction of which no doubt there will be plenty.

There also looks to be a collection CD/LP coming out on No Escape/Torture Garden Picture Company and further releases to come.

The show line-up also features 3 more of Australia's best grind bands the legendary Captain Cleanoff, the raw styles of Roskopp and the young but terrifying bowel vocal extravaganza of Die Pigeon Die.

Here is a few of my old photos of The Kill with Neil in fine form:


Not to be missed!
