    Don't know the Killers that much or like them for that matter but I do know Echo and the Bunnymen and they sound allot like them. Looking forward to seeing them.

    If they do then please let me know so I can avoid them like tap water in Mexico.

    I guess Brandon Flowers should just rap over shitty guitars. That'll make them "EPIC", right?

    Dude from White Lies sounds like the dude from Ultravox.

    Dont feel bad if you have no idea who that is. I only know cuz they are on the Live Aid dvd.

    I can't believe nobody even chuckled at the notion of a British Killers. How would that work, would they have to sing in a Las Vegas accent instead?

    Anyway, I don't think they actually sound all that similar, but they do draw from all the same influences so I can see the comparison.

    I bought the white lies cd on the buzz that they sound like the killers.

    They absolutely do not sound like the killers but I love the album. It's got a deep, dark, moody 80s sound that I just adore and his voice is excellent.

    Another fucking band to see on friday goddammit!
