The King Khan & BBQ Show – Bad News Boys

Whether alone or together, King Khan and BBQ dole out sweaty, dedicated subversion of ’60s garage tropes with a mischievous wink and a waggle of the hips. They’re the guys who want you to “Treat Me Like a Dog”, who wish they had “Tastebuds” on their nuts, who have an “Animal Party” with a bunch of zoo guests “doin’ the such-and-such,” all delivered in pitch-perfect, lo-fi shimmy and shake. They’ve also penned some gems that’d pass on golden-era AM radio without needing to change up the lyrical content, though. Whether in their explosive personal history or their manically diverse records, The King Khan & BBQ Show do whatever sounds like fun in the moment. And that’s why there’s a mush-mouthed tune called “Snackin’ After Midnight” and another with the screamed chorus “diarrhea fuck off” on their latest LP, the appropriately titled Bad News Boys.
