They're a band that have divided opinion here at Strange Glue, are they great or just good?
Well the argument will surely surface again with Domino's announcement it will re-release their debut album this May. Some might say rather cynically so, what with the hype beginning to catch fire on this year's Jack White-sponsored supergroup The Dead Weather, for which The Kills Alison Mosshart performs lead vocals.
