Setlist: Jenny Was a Friend of Mine | Somebody Told Me | Smile Like You Mean It | Mr. Brightside | Under the Gun | Midnight Show
“They walked on stage, four ordinary looking lads. Young, especially the singer / keyboard player. I liked that, to start with. I’d not seen a lead singer with a stand-up keyboard stand in years. They were clearly American, sounded like a happier Interpol. There was quite a bit of that coming out of the States at the time, bands mixing vintage British post-punk sounds with something a bit more pop and cheerful. The lyrics were great, too, a bloke accused of killing his girlfriend protesting his innocence… and then, yeah, my mate was right. Half way through the song the frontman set down his microphone and played this incredible 1982-style-electropop one finger synth solo; I was hooked. Just seven months later the song, “Jenny Was A Friend of Mine”, would rocket up the world’s charts as the opening track on The Killers’ debut album “Hot Fuss”; by then they were pop stars." (X)

I got to go the “ping pong” room last year and there was a stash of Cokes.
I took one.
Only Victims will understand why this is important.
