The Murder Trilogy

Played publicly for the first time since they signed with a label, the Killers performed the first part of their murder trilogy--"Leave the Bourbon on the Shelf"--along with the other two songs at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia on October 12th.

It's obvious that the song was written during their early days, since it has a decidedly different sound to it from Sam's Town or some of the pieces they've written for soundtracks. It works pretty well with "Midnight Show" and "Jenny Was a Friend of Mine" and all the super fans will feel the need to complete the set, which is probably why they added it to Sawdust. Oh, they can say what they like about feeling the need to share these songs with fans, but we know the real reasoning here.

On a completely different topic from the music, it's interesting to note that despite rumors of his "bloated rockstar figure", Brandon Flowers is looking pretty damn svelte on stage. And, he appears to have groomed the 'stache of doom. His arms are looking a little more defined, too. His singing? Oh, sorry. Didn't notice that.
