A Meeting of the Libidos: Louis XIV and Ike Reilly Assassination

LouisXIV.jpgNeo-punk band, Louis XIV, is not for the faint of heart - rather the filthy of heart and dirty of mind. On their album The Best Little Secrets are Kept, lead singer Jason Hill sings his way through a litany of women he would like to have sex with (chocolate girl, Asian girl, carrot girl, vanilla girl, Miss Little Smart Girl, tough girl etc.).

"It's no secret, best-kept or otherwise, that glammy hams Louis XIV are hornier than the entire Tijuana Brass Band... it's perhaps the most titillating sexist album cover since Smell The Glove" - Yahoo Music.

In spite of their overhauled irreverence, QLL is a big fan of Louis XIV; favorite songs include "Pledge of Allegiance" and "Louis XIV". Samples can be heard from the Louis XIV jukebox.

And whereas Louis XIV proudly boasts their supposed sexual prowess, the Ike Reilly Assassination takes a rather opposite approach. On the first song of their first major-label debut Ike Reilly Assassination front man, Ike Reilly, belts out about his inability to satisfy his lover.

Ike.jpgIke Reilly, a former cemetery worker and doorman, released a solo album in July 2001. Met with major praise from The New York Times, GQ and Rolling Stone, when the album did not bring in the expected profits, he was subsequently dropped from the label. Considering himself a modern day Willy Lomen, Ike Reilly revived his music career with the start of a new band, ironically dubbed, the Ike Reilly Assassination.

A meeting of the libidos is scheduled to take place this Thursday, September 1st, at Irving Plaza. Ike Reilly Assassination will open for Louis XIV. Perhaps Ike Reilly can get some between-the-sheets tips, from sex-crazed Jason Hill. Regardless of the exchanges, this concert is going to rock.

Tickets are still available on TicketMaster for a quarter-life price: $14.50
