The Killers have had quite a bit of success in the UK- "Mr Brightside" was a top 10 single. what success are they having back home in the US? they strike me as an Interpol with catchier songs. the singer sounds to me a bit like Rick Witter of Shed seven. also reminiscent of the Psychedelic Furs. anyway, the bassist plays some pretty interesting lines- eg. "somebody told me", chords, and had a nice crunchy tone when they played live on Later. he uses a pick on a maple neck Jazz.
