Lounge Kittens Cover AC/DC – Dirty Deeds [video]

Tired of waiting for the release of their debut album ‘Sequins & C-Bombs’, alt-harmony group The Lounge Kittens, have proffered their first video from the as yet undisclosed track listing. A tongue-in-cheek twist on AC/DC’s killer classic ‘Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap’ sees the girls return to office jobs… as hitmen with a difference.

The album doesn’t come out till September and frankly, we’re bored of keeping it all a secret” says Blue Kitten, Timia. “So we thought right, time to make some more videos – it’s been AGES.”

And it seems there’s a lot more to come… “Whilst there’s some debate raging about which songs to release from the album and what would make a good single and blah, blah we decided we didn’t have enough to do so set ourselves the challenge of releasing a brand new video every month until the end of the year.” Zan Kitten (the Pink one) tells us.
The videos are what the fans want. It’s what we’re best known for” chimes in the little Red one, Jen “and they’re really fun to make! For example, this one we filmed over two night shoots, after working all day. But what’s more fun than hunting people through the streets of London armed with fistfuls of glitter!?!

Releasing this trail of videos on the 16th of the month, every month means we might as well stick a recurring reminder in our diaries and write off any thoughts of achieving anything on the 16th of the month now, as we’ll be glued to YouTube, eagerly awaiting the drop of the next instalment. “That’s exactly it, yeah. Now you all know the schedule, you know where you have to be and when… but not what to expect!” confirms Zan.

We’ve wanted to do an AC/DC track for ages, the only question was WHICH ONE?” enthuses Jen. “With so many bangers to choose from, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap was the shy one hiding round the corner, just to the side of some of the more well-known hits squeaking ‘pick me, pick me’ and it totally works as a Kitten track.”
It’s so much fun to sing live” says Timia Kitten “like a cross between a smoke-filled backroom, speakeasy and a good ole knees up round the Joanna. We’ll definitely be busting it out at Stone Free Festival this weekend.”

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
