Portrait of thepleasurekills
Blasting out of San Francisco, The Pleasure Kills play powerpop!

Girl-fronted, with irresistible hooks and bubblegum organ sounds, The Pleasure Kills are unabashedly fun! Their recordings may be pop-perfect, but there's a punk toughness and grit underlying the sweetness. On stage they're wild, playing a fast and furious rock beat with apparently unlimited energy. Lead singer Lydiot's superstar voice, dynamic stage presence, and cover-girl looks make her the quintessential teenage fantasy pop queen!

The band wowed the crowd at the Wild Weekend powerpop festival in Austin Labor Day weekend 2008, and they garnered new fans across the Southwest during the accompanying two-week tour. The Oregonian named them as a highlight of the Slabtown Bender 2008 festival in Portland.

Quickly establishing themselves as one of the leading lights of today's modern powerpop scene, The Pleasure Kills are an absolute must-see for punks and indie rockers alike. The Pleasure Kills are the pop sensation for today's generation!

Reviewers compare The Pleasure Kills to Blondie, The Go-Gos, Rezillos, Nikki Corvette, Josie Cotton, and Joan Jett:

a must-have record for anyone who loves powerpop … both songs are fantastic … imagine it playing over a sentimental montage scene in an early 80s teen movie - Now Wave

pop music at its finest ... a refreshing alternative to the crowded and muddled music of the current American underground - Seven Ten Twelve

absolutely pure power pop goodness - Maximum Rock N Roll

a cool little piece of day-glo earrings and checkered Vans new wave rock - Smashin' Transistors

you can't deny that this one is a hit - Terminal Boredom

The band two singles, “Smash Up The Radio” (August 2007, Polypore Records) and "Mission Boy" (August 2008) have received accolades from a variety of pundits, airplay on numerous college radio stations, and charted in the Top 30 at San Francisco's KUSF.
