The Kills are not just an indie band, they are a very good looking and extremely talented indie band! With one half married to uber model Kate Moss, the other side of the coin, Allison Mosshart can certainly hold her own in the pretty woman stakes. With the band’s tenth anniversary looming, and a whole lot of interesting tales on the way, it’s no wonder that a book documenting their time on the road, which for the past nine years has been quietly brewing, has just looking for an excuse to be released!
‘Dream and Drive’ a new coffee table book by photographer Kenneth Cappello is an intimate, personal and down right compulsive insight to the bands up and downs on tour. Including rare and never see before footage, Cappello, as a friend, has caught the duo in all lights. From sunrise strolls to late night parties, the unique book is shot in a reportage style and has been pulled together from over 20,000 photographs and 600 rolls of film.
Available from the Marc Jacobs bookstore Bookmarc, the exhibition launched in London’s Hoxton Gallery last night to a packed Private View. I spied Mr Hince, but unfortunately didn’t get a chance to pap him next to an image of himself- but I can confirm he looks very much like his pictures! And when he disappeared into the crowds, I was left admiring the scenery with Pam Hogg. So not a bad night all in all!
Check it out – at the Hoxton Gallery, Kingsland Road, London until 2nd October or if you miss that, you can always buy the book.
