ROCK OF ASIAN: The King Khan & BBQ Show’s Invisible Girl

November 11th, 2009 | 1 comment | Posted by Jen

The King Khan & BBQ Show are two crazy cats from Montreal who make really catchy music that pays serious homage to 50′s and 60′s garage rock.

And that’s about as much as you can say to pin down Canadiasian King Khan (nee Arish Khan) and BBQ (aka Mark Sultan), who this month released Invisible Girl, their fifth album together.

You can hear the influence of early Washington-state punk bands like The Wailers and The Sonics, as well as Khan’s idol Chuck Berry, in Invisible Girl (which will be streaming for free until November 16 at Exclaim.ca), but King Khan and BBQ don’t like to get too literal about what they do. In this hilariously dada interview, they claim “sodomy, pizza, Roger Moore, sporks, dentistry, Don Knotts, tribal tattoos, tramp stamps not included, and hobo sexuality” as just a few of the driving forces behind their music.

Their live act, too, is legendary for being unlike any other, and lucky for you, The King Khan and BBQ Show will be touring North America through December.  Click here for tour dates.

Look next for a collaboration between GZA and Khan, who’s rumored to be writing songs for the Wu-Tang artist’s upcoming album.
