The Kills with MYKITA
We are huge fans of the band The Kills. Our admiration grew even more when we stumbled across this nicely made book, called “Dream & Drive”. It contains marvellous images of Alison Mosshart, Jamie Hince and the rest of The Kills family whilst travelling, walking out on stage, playing gigs or feeling homeless in hotels.
“The beauty of rock n roll, and what it is to be on the road, is like waking up in the morning, putting on your boots and shooting yourself out of a cannon. It’s exhilarating”, is Alison’s description in the foreword. And the best is yet to come: in the book we also found these amazing pictures of Jamie & Alison wearing their MYKITA sun frames.
All the photos were shot by Kenneth Cappello, a good friend of the band who has seen it all – festival stages in Europe and America, little bar gigs and of course the backstage area. But he has also captured intimate moments with the two band leaders, expressing their feelings on stage, getting ready for a show or
just swimming in the sea.
Here’s a selection of the images. The whole book can be pre-ordered via The Kills website.
