THE KILLERS - Elton John - David Bowie......

Story in NME..................


THE KILLERS have just returned from a jet-setting and celebrity studded jaunt of Europe and North America.

Our exclusive picture shows the moment Las Vegas’ finest met piano-tinkling motor mouth Elton John backstage in Paris. The star had asked the band to perform as part of a ‘Trafik Musique’ Elton John television special (September 27).

Although recently bad-mouthing many of the world’s top stars, Elton took a shining to The Killers and has arranged to take Brandon and the boys out to dinner when he next in Las Vegas.

The Killers soon jetted off to New York where they followed in Franz Ferdinand’s footsteps in being congratulated by David Bowie, who turned up to see the band play at the city’s Irving Plaza (October 5), along with producer Tony Visconti.

The group were invited to play on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ the following night (October 6), where they tore through ‘Somebody Told Me’ – expected to be re-released in the UK in January 2005.

FILM SCHOOL gets 4 Kerrangs out of 5 in the latest issue....

The Barfly, London

Clearly a band eager to make the most of flying across the Atlantic, San Francisco's Film School are rather remarkably - playing a different London venue every single night this week. Tonight they're being observed by a crowd so 'indie' there are members of Scottish whingers Travis here.

Stumbling onto the stage and immersing the room in a wall of noise akin to one of Sonic Youth's more experimental outros sets the tone for a set that seamlessly mingles jangling Jesus And Mary Chain guitar blocks, dark experimentalism, subtle keyboard infustions, emo proclamations and vocals that frequently echo Robert Smith.

Sure they lack any semblance of personality between songs, and aren't all that bothered about giving the crowd something interesting to look at, but they have this roomfull pretty enthralled.

Film School get truly epic at times, but their real charm is their ability to build songs up to a point where you assume they can go no further, before making the soar even higher. Though they fail to hold it completely together tonight, at their best these SF alt-rockers are utterly enchanting.

Worth looking out for.

of shitfaced journos at SXSX last March. They crib heavily from a post-rock colossi such as Trail of Dead Being hailed as the saviours of shoegazing might sound more of an underhand slur than an actual compliment, but it didn't stop San Francisco's Film School from wowing a gaggle, Cave In and Sunny Day Real Estate (RIP) to produce the sprawling shadow-play of 'Harmed', available this week from the link at the base of this page. Those left intrigued by its crystalline brilliance can catch Film School at London Camden Barfly (September 22), London Shoreditch On The Rocks (23), London Highbury Upstairs At The Garage (24) and London W1 Metro (25).
