 THE KILL VAN KULL were something of a NYC hardcore supergroup formed from members of Deadguy, Kiss It Goodbye, Die 116, Hell No, Citizens Arrest etc. They don’t sound particularly like any of those bands, more like a furious post hardcore melting pot. Stylistically 1998’s ‘Human Bomb’ draws from an off kilter Pitchfork/Honor Role vibe but with the urgency of a Hell No or Merel record.  There’s not much info kicking around (discography?) but I found this INTERVIEW.

    Awesome seeing this. I played guitar and sang on the last 3 songs on this CD replacing Janis of Citizens Arrest / Hell No fame. For the record no one from the band was ever in Deadguy. Currently me and Bob the bassist play with The Brought Low, guitarist/singer Cooper plays bass in Made Out of Babies and drummer Jim plays in Fresh Kills. Hope someone enjoys this. Few people did at the time hardeeharhar. Ben.

    I was lucky enough to play on the same bill with this band in the late 90’s at random clubs around NYC. Their bass player at the time gave me a copy of this record. I still listen to it on a monthly basis. It’s that good.

  3. am i wrong or didnt more than a few people from kill van kull end up in the jj paradise players club?
