I find myself laughing aloud one minute then banging my head the next!
Angela B.Hurd
The musicianship is definitely there - guitar, bass, sax and amazing beat boxing make up the music.
C. Schober
Though it sounds as though there are drums at points throughout the album, there are none.

Listening to Mock Bottom by Kill The Band is a combination of laughing, rocking out and finding yourself seriously contemplating our culture underneath the headbanging and non-stop giggles. In the track, Famous Baby, Kill The Band pokes fun at white celebrities' adoption trends with lines like "Gimme your baby so I can give it to Madonna", "Your questionable ethnicity, your greencard authenticity up the value of your sperm. Cause the diva won't go wild for American white child, so I'll carry your brown baby to term." My favorite line: "There's a party in my panties and my eggs are hosting." Bottom line on Mock Bottom, everything is mocked in equal measure - anti-depressants, ADD, the "neurotic and compulsively obsessed" state of being an artist, our NYC "see something, say something" campaign, relationships, science - yes, I said science; check out Clone U, "After we try it out on our dog and it's socially acceptable, I am going to clone you." What makes Kill The Band's Mock Bottom truly remarkable is their ability to deliver these amazing lyrics through songs that you would musically want to hear again and again - be forewarned; Mock Bottom has a tendency to play on in your head long after you've taken off your head phones... A delightful little treat in the shower, on the way to work, when your date is boring. And finally, for all the ladies out there, you simply MUST check out Girl Balls - "Do you want tears or do you want to brawl? Need a big stall for my giant girl balls. I got girl balls. I got girl balls." It's an anthem, a war cry more powerful than Joan Jetts' "I love Rock `n' Roll." Grow a pair and download. You're welcome!

Bought the album at the release party/farewell concert for her/their new album "Happy Ending". Now I'm sad, sad, sad.
Hilarious as well as tuneful, with hooky little earworms that will burst forth at the most gloriously inappropriate moments (i.e. "No one respects a slave unless he's played by...Morgan Freeman"). You are not buying this album because you love Lou Reed, Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin. You are buying it because you love Lou Reed, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin AND Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison and Gilda Radner. Yes, I've cited dead genius, because NYC is dying, and the Mockstar's album encapsulates what we are losing: gritty, dirty, funny and soulful. Get it before it's ALL gone.

Damn... I am high. On life, that is! And the fantabulous, eclectic groovy sounds of Kill The Band's new album "Mock Bottom".

I was fortunate enough to get a 4-song demo, prior to the release of the album, and I immediately dug Kill The Band. I chose my rave fave "Don't Attack Me with Your Happiness " to play on a guest spot on my pal Jim Riecken's show "The Defective Jukebox" on 89.1 WFDU FM / [...]

KTB proved to me that they could make 4 great songs, and I was curious when I received the Mock Bottom CD if they could knock my socks off with a full-length 13-track album. They most assuredly did!!!

I was most impressed with the versatility of the styles of songs, some pretty much indefinable, and I can't think of any artist / band that has put out an album with so many different genres, often changing mid-song, since the Mothers of Invention, Frank Zappa's amazing band from the 60's/early 70's, that inspired me to do a report on them in 6th grade music class. I'm no longer in 6th grade, but I do have a new band to inspire me.

Of course Kill The Band started off Mock Bottom with "Don't Attack Me with Your Happiness". This one's a hit, gang!!! Dealing with neuroses, psychosis, OCD, ADD, substance abuse, mother issues, being an artist (a freakin loony tunes one!) and many other serious issues with a quirky, delightfully insane groove.

Lead singer Killy Mockstar has such an endearing voice, whether she's sounding cutesy and adorable, or screaming like she's about to rip out your throat (which also sounds adorable!), Killy has a unique and memorable voice. I suck at counting octaves, but I can tell that Killy has some impressive range.

If women want to know what men really think about what goes on inside a woman's head at any given moment, these recordings may enlighten you. Mock Bottom is the first full length comedy CD from Kill The Band that covers a lot of ground over over it's 13 tracks. If the belief is that a woman constantly changes her mind, so does the CD with it's ever changing of subject matter and musical genres. Kill The Band fires in every direction hitting on relationships, celebrities, society and even science. Killy Dwyer takes off on a estrogen-laced roller coaster of vocals and mood swings. She can melt your heart with a sultry lounge sound, break down in an emotional car wreck, uplift you with childlike enthusiasm and then rip your head off with feirce verocity, sometimes within the same song. Like any good man sticking by his chick, "The Band" is right along side Killy, changing musical genre's and tempos, adding to the whirlwind of lyrics. Funk, punk, gospel, country, childrens songs, they are all in there making the CD in itself seem like a variety show. With so much in one CD, anyone may have a tough time choosing just one. Have fun trying to decide.
