Pre King Khan & BBQ material from Khan and Sultan
After seeing Khan & BBQ at Oslo last year I’ve decided that Mark’s singing is hugely underrated.
Yeah definitely! There’s a raw soulfulness that you don’t always often come by. Would love to see a Khan & BBQ show (only seen Khan with the Shrines), there’s something timeless about the records that they’ve put out.
Upon spotting you post Les Sexareenos earlier, I revisited Misbehavin’ which led me to discover that Sultan actually put out a new record last Friday (not sure if it was mentioned in the new releases thread):
Shame you couldn’t get to Hackney when they played there. It wasn’t too long ago, less than two years ago but more than a year, I think. You’d have had the pleasure of my DJing as well!
When I was about 16/17 I loved this record. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to any of their other albums but I almost don’t want to, these two songs were the best tracks.
People know him from Blood Sweat & Tears but this mid-1960s effort is a banger and unjustifiably obscure.
