MusicFeedsTV caught up with Mon Cherie from Sydney rock outfit Kill City Creeps. Although the band has only been together since 2011, their music is quickly hooking in listeners with their intriguing blend of 60’s psychedelia and 70’s glam and quirky demeanor.
Out of the blue, lead singer Dan (formerly of The Dolly Rocker Movement) emailed Mon with an idea for the band while he was still in Los Angeles. Although playing in another band at the time, Mon thought Kill City Creeps would make a nice side project; things then quickly took off for them.
Their debute EP was mixed by Nic Dalton of the Lemonheads, whose music had been a big influence during Mon’s musical upbringing. Already there are 2 new recordings (a cover and also an original) that will be available to listeners in September 2012.
Kill City Creeps will be performing a live set this Saturday, August 11 at Newtown’s Vanguard to celebrate the return of the band’s organist, who has been in Germany for the last four months.
Also coming up is a festival slot at this year’s Fat As Butter festival to be held on Saturday, 22nd September in Newcastle. Further recordings and a potential overseas tour is also on the cards, so fans of the band will have much to look forward to.
