The latest HOT PRESS had a brief article on this band, and described their music as a cross between U2, DuranDuran and Oasis!

How accurate is this description? If it's true, I want to hear more!

Somebody told me - excellent song
All these things that I've done - also excellent

Cross between U2/DuranDuran/Oasis - Yeah - I can see that

Somebody told me is infectious - the song stays in your head all day - thankfully its a good song

Rollingstone.com has an article on the killers

There is a guy at the Ryan Adams board who won't shut up about how good they are. I really want to check them out.

What a coincidence!!! I just heard "Somebody Told Me" on the radio. Definite DuranDuran/Oasis influence, along with a little bit of Cure mixed in.
I'll have to buy it off iTunes when I get home from work.

I saw their CD for $10 at Media Play and Borders yesterday. Almost picked it up, that's a great price.

PS - I like all of their songs I've heard so far, esp. 'Mr. Brightside'.

I am sorry, I always do this...I posted in the wrong forum. One of the mods is going to have to move my post. Anyway Hot Fuss is the best new music I have heard in a long time. I take the long way home just so that I can listen to their CD.

Nurse Chrissi, I used to live in St. Louis, so I know the town well. They are playing Mississippi Nights next week I think. Go check them out.

Holy crap. . I just got Hot Fuss because I'd seen so many U2 fans say they like this band. This is GOOD.

Seriously, it's been awhile since a new band hit me like this, I'm pumped.

I heard a song of theirs on the alternative music station we have on digital tv. I know I haven't heard the rest of their material, but still, I was left wondering what in the hell all of the fuss is about.

I know when I first heard there music it was rivoting. I hear so many other groups in this one group. Parts of it sound like U2, Bowie, Pink Floyd, even Queen. I am making the pilgramage to see them in a few weeks in Vegas cuz I missed their LA show. I just discovered them too, so I did not realize how good they were.

On their web site, I was reading that one of the guys was a bellhop at the Golden Nugget Hotel in Vegas. Another guy worked in a Bannanna Rebublic in Vegas. They had to practice in their gararge at extreme heat. I am so glad they MADE IT!
