Kill Radio

Album Title: Raised On Whipped Cream
Release Date: September 7, 2004
Genre: Punk
"A.M.E.R.I.K.A.", a two minute ditty that starts with a whisper and ends with ear-splitting screaming, is the perfect way for Kill Radio to kick off their debut album, the brilliantly titled Raised On Whipped Cream. Dissatisfied, disaffected, and damn angry, the song calls out for the return of the freedoms being stripped away by the American government. Before anyone pulls out the "not another whiny, try-hard punk band" comment, Kill Radio is quick describe themselves as "a 21st century pop band, that happens to have a point of view" - there seems to be no image illusions hereÖunless it's a marketing ploy. While "A.M.E.R.I.K.A." does well at representing Kill Radio's political purpose, vocalist Brandon Jordan oscillates between the traditional incoherent punk scream and more affecting guttural sing-song, as found on stand-out track "Do You Know (Knife In Your Back)", to great purpose. There's a load of work and a long while to go before Kill Radio is hailed as the next MC5 or Rage Against The Machine, but for now, those looking for political rantings sans the cheese can find it on Raised On Whipped Cream.
