KING KHAN AND BBQ SHOW, THE: Self-titled: 7”

It looks like King Khan And BBQ have kissed and made up, as this is their first record since the unfortunate break up in 2010. I don’t know if this heralds a full-fledged return of King Khan And BBQ Show, as details are scarce. On first listen, I didn’t much care for this record. I’ll admit I’m prejudiced against two-song 7”s, especially if one song is a cover. King Khan And BBQ Show’s 7”s and EPs usually leave me flat. I don’t know if they save their B-material for 7”s but I have been disappointed by most of them, which is a shame because I love King Khan And BBQ Show so much. It’s starting to grow on me, though.
