The King Khan & BBQ Show - S/T
When I started working at the radio station again a few months back, the girl that was training me told me that this album was going to save rock n' roll. While it certainly does not do that (who said rock n' roll needed saving anyway?), its still a fun record, and with the warm weather as of late I've found myself listening to it more and more. These guys are a drum and guitar duo that play upbeat, lo-fi rock that draws influences from 60's surf music and 50's doo-wop as well as classic garage rock groups like The Sonics. King Khan & BBQ certainly aren't reinventing the wheel here, and it's also entirely possible that they have chosen the worst band name of all time. Still, the songs are undeniably catchy, and thats what really matters. For your viewing pleasure I've also included their music video for "Waddlin' Around" which features both puppets and vomiting. Enjoy.
