Kill is a mission. Whereas most independent music ventures in London traditionally focus on one sub-sub-genre of music, Kill Yr Idols have an objective to do something different. Inspired by the American indie/hardcore scene of the 80’s (kids, run to a library and read Yr IdolsOur band could be your life by Michael Azerrad) they aim to work collaboratively with artists who share a common goal, but are not bound in a straightjacket to replicating the same sound and style as each other. They seek out artists who share common artistic bonds and ethos, but at the same time show a variety of sounds, themes and style.
Playlist goes mostly back and forth between electronica, psychedelic and psychotic sounds, pop and punk. Kill Yr Idols want to put on nights where you will hear HEALTH alongside Sonic Youth, Telepathe alongside Bikini Kill and Teeth alongside Trash Kit. As well as promoting inventive and exciting new music through club nights and the Kill Yr idols blog, future events will feature collaborations with amazing independent artists and film-makers.
Sounds good to us, see you there!
