KING KHAN – The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines

King Khan - “The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines”King Khan – “The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines”
Release Date: June 17, 2008 Label: Vice Records

One part Iggy Pop, one part James Brown, and two parts awesome is the recipe for one of my favorite new-ish artists. Between the triumphant horn lines, raspy vocals, and upbeat driving bass lines Khan’s sound is refreshingly original, while still managing to pay appropriate homage to some great periods of Rock n’ Roll. He sings songs about everything: from the expensive eating habits of the obese women he has dated, to his own personal inadequacies, to living in the fast lane, to true love. Often donning nothing but a necklace and some tight briefs, the energy of his performance and the passion he puts behind his music is hard to miss and would perhaps make you doubt his Canadian origins (for a perhaps a more balls-out country such as the U.S.A.) He is so much fun, his music is awesome. He is best known for his work with his backing band The Shrines, but he also collaborates with old music partner Mark Sultan to create a neo-grunge do-wop band called King Khan and the B.B.Q. show. I would suggest going out and buying “The Supreme Genious of King Khan and the Shrines” right now… so DO IT!
