A rip off from wiki
The Kills is an indie rock band formed by American vocalist and guitarist Alison Mosshart (“VV”) and British guitarist Jamie Hince (“Hotel”). Their three albums, Keep On Your Mean Side, No Wow and Midnight Boom, have gathered much critical praise. Alison Mosshart is lead singer of The Dead Weather, a side project of Mosshart, Jack White, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age and Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs.
Mosshart was previously in Floridian punk rock band Discount, and Hince was in the British rock bands Scarfo and Blyth Power (the latter an anarcho-punk band). The duo first met when Mosshart heard Hince practicing in the hotel room above hers, and when the former groups disbanded they struck up a songwriting partnership.
For months, the pair air mailed work tapes across the Atlantic; this proved to test the patience of both artists as it took days or weeks to get each other’s tapes, so Mosshart moved from her Florida home under the guidance of Lauren Antonina Herbert to London
