The Killer B’s, The Blues Kitchen

The Killer B’s, The Blues Kitchen

An alt-supergroup that delivers slap-to-the-head rock’n’roll

The Killer B’s do their best to revive Dr Feelgood anti-chic

The Killer B’s have been heralded as a kind of alternative supergroup (their line-up consisting of ex-members of The Screaming Blue Messiahs, Chicken Legs Weaver and The Men They Couldn’t Hang) so my expectations last night were high. But a poor sound system, in conjunction with the band’s desire to play much too loud for that poor sound system, ended up making it very hard to judge whether I was hearing the future of rock’n’roll or just another pub rock band.
