THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “The Kills have compiled an extraordinary, career-spanning B-sides and rarities album titled, appropriately, Little Bastards. The songs date back from the band’s first 7-inch singles in 2002 through to 2009. All of the material has been newly remastered for release on two LPs, CD & Digital and marks the first-ever vinyl pressing for some of these tracks.
The compilation includes the unreleased and never-before-heard demo Raise Me from the 2008-2009 Midnight Boom era. Other highlights include I Call It Art from the Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited covers compilation, the brilliant Midnight Boom digital bonus track Night Train, a blistering performance of Love Is A Deserter from a radio session and a handful of classic American roots songs performed with the kind of bruising delivery they’re famous for: Howlin’ Wolf’s Forty Four, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ I Put A Spell on You and Dock Boggs’ Sugar Baby.”
