My thoughts… Kitty in a Casket is one of the best female-fronted psychobilly/punk bands out there! Their recently released 4th album Kiss & Hell is easily their best – and most punk – to date! “Sticks & Stones” is the band’s coolest single since “Don’t Get Me Wrong”, while “Lurking in the Dark”, “Bloodlust”, “Of Cats & Demons”, “Straight to Hell”, and “Nightmare” are more great tracks all in a row! Oh, and I love the video for “Lurking in the Dark” which tells the song’s tale of a gun-toting, revenge-seeking, female monster killer through an awesome B&W&Red motion comic! The art is very cool but I’d love to see a live-action version!
