In addition to playing the new Scissor Sisters song to death, I've also been loving on the new Killers song. In honor of the wonderfulness that is "When You Were Young," I've decided to post four rare Killers demos. I think you'll find the variance in sound to be somewhat peculiar, as none of the four songs (well, maybe "Desperate") really sounds like it could be on Hot Fuss. They were clearly a band finding their direction at the time of recording. "Desperate" is a really dramatic sounding semi-ballad, "Waiting For Love" has an almost ska influence in parts, "Oh Yeah, By The Way" is more glam rock than new wave, and "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" (an unlikely Kenny Rogers cover) has a lo-fi country shuffle to it.
