Album Review

The Little Killers haven't changed much on their second record, A Real Good One. They have jumped labels and hired a new producer, Jim Diamond, who has given their sound a looser and more relaxed feel. Other than that the New York trio still makes a pretty sweet rock & roll racket replete with the obligatory but somehow never stale snotty vocals, pounding tempos, hooky choruses, occasional handclaps and wailing guitar solos. Short, mean, and tough tunes like "Finger Pie," "Don't Leave Me," and "You Better Be Right" compete with longer, more thoughtful (though still totally loud and rambunctious) songs like the Stooges-influenced "Something Special," "Been So Long," and "Fly" to give this record a more two-dimensional appeal that the first record sometimes lacked. Developing new wrinkles to your sound without abandoning what made it so fine in the first place is a neat trick and much credit goes to the group for working it so well. The Little Killers remain all killer and no filler.

Customer Reviews

Lovely, just lovely.

Wonderful bit of work; they've got that Black Keys/Eagles of Death Metal/New York Dolls sound working so very well. And the rumors are true... if you start "She Don't Love Me" in time with the opening credits of the last Lord of The Rings movie the action synchs up perfectly. Okay, not really.

Hi, my name is Elijah and I am a huge rock and roll fan. My dad told me to check you guys out two nights ago, because he heard you playing on Terre T.'s Cherry Blossom Clinic a few years back. So I looked you guys up and bought both of your albums. I can honestly say the Little Killers are my new favorite band. What an incredibly unique sound, I have never heard anything like it! I did a little research, and it really is a shame that you guys broke up in 2007. My friends are now fans, and together we ask you, Andy Maltz, to keep on rocking! You really had something there, and with a little time and effort I truly believe The Little Killers will make it big. I doubt any of you three will even read this, but I just wanted to express my opinion. Love the work, especially Something Special. Thanks for the great music!

Years Active: '00s

Inspired by rock and punk icons such as Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, and Johnny Thunders, New York City's the Little Killers play stripped-down, super-charged garage punk. Formed in 2001 by vocalist/guitarist Andy Maltz, bassist Sara Nelson, and drummer Kari Boden, the band cut its teeth on the local club scene before signing with Crypt Records and releasing its eponymous debut in 2003. Their second Crypt release, 2006's Real Good One,...
