3.6 out of 5 stars

LA based Danish goth/psychobilly trio The Horrorpops have buried that 'difficult third album syndrome' by releasing their best effort to date. It's packed full of memorable tunes, even if the rockabilly shuffle beat is a little one paced, and while Patricia Day's voice can't always live up to her ambitions (think Kate Pierson of The B-52s), hell at least she tries. Standout tracks include the Billy Idolatry of the title track, the character assassination of 'She's Heading for the Disco' (a bitchy update on Blondie's 'Rip Her to Shreds') and the cinematically-inspired 'Thelma & Louise' and 'Hitchcock Starlet'. Incidentally the great sleeve graphics are also worth a mention: they pick up on trashy B movie posters, along the lines of fellow Danish retro-fetishists The Raveonettes.

"Kiss Kiss Kill Kill" is the third album of a Danish Band that formed in 1996. There has been much genre tagging of their style of music; "Punk", "Pop-Punk", "Rockabilly", "Psychobilly" ( I don't know what medication the bright spark who invented this word was on, but can I have some please!), "Goth Rock/Punk), and "New Wave" are some of them, so you pays your money and takes your pick!

But whatever their style is, it is heavy in energetic bass playing, vibrant vocalizing with a haunting quality - a bit like Kate Bush meets The Stray Cats - and certainly is a sound that stands by itself and seeks to parody no other. The 'uniqueness' of The Horrorpops is furthered by a predilection to colourful body tattoos, 'Goth-meets-Betty-Boop' stage apparel and a mammoth application of white foundation and vivid red lipstick.

The music is good on this album with no bummers. As the cover art conveys, there is an amporhous connection to "B-Movie" posters, as the excellent first track "Thelma And Louise", would indicate. Other outstanding tracks include "MissFit", "Boot2Boot" (inspired by rioting in Copenhagen following trouble at an 'anarcho-punk squat'), "Heading For The Disco", and "Private Hall Of Shame".

Good Band particularly for those that enjoy good bass playing, dynamic body energising beats, colourful facades, goth fashions, tattoos, and a whiff of slightly 'naughty non-conformist social behaviour' that is fashionable among younger people.

I love the first two albums by Horrorpops, so was disappointed to find that Kiss Kiss Kill Kill is, well, dull is the only polite word I can use. There are none of the catchy tunes from the previous records. With the exception of the title track, there is nothing to really recommend here.
