about

King Khan's adventures almost 18 years ago in the cities of Bordeaux and Berlin finely documented in music is finally going to get the VINYL TREATMENT. These recordings were made while King Khan galavanted through Europe's most hedonistic cities and collected a merry group of pranksters to make sweet sweet rock n roll with. And who else did he meet along the way? Sophie Crumb, the genius comic book cretin and painter extra-ordinaire. Upon meeting Sophie in the south of France, Khan had a mystical vision of a giant Turkey Ride with a human ass, and a couple of kids standing around it and staring at it. Sophie enjoyed this mystical vision and put some ink and some watercolor together and brought it to life! Music and art twist the night again! This 13 song ode to bohemia is just what the doctor ordered, if the doctor was Timothy Leary and the nurse was Traci Lords.... hammana hammmmana hammmana!!!!

While young King Khan was making these frequent trips (not only the Lysergic kind) to the cities of Bordeaux and Berlin. He was especially mesmerized by the decadent bohemian relax-your-mind mentality of frogs and krauts alike. He met Dan Ra and waltzed into his studio and within a few days and nights recorded what would be the beginning of the King Khan Experience. After the fourth visit, King Khan walked into the Red Roses (notorious 24 hour drinking hole in Kreuzberg) after an all night recording session. There he met a strange 70 year old African man from Somalia who happened to be wearing the same hat and scarf as King Khan. The man stared into Khan's eyes and yelled "YOU LOOK LIKE ME". This scared the young king khan as it truly felt like he was staring at a 70 year old version of himself. The Somalian who called himself "The Electric Sailor" spoke three different languages, and pounded beats on the table in front of him. When Dan Ra approached the somalian he frantically yelled "Don't touch me White Man!" After a while the ice was broken and they all had a great chat. The somalian's name was Hassan Hersi Ali Gama, and when they parted ways King Khan headed drunkenly to the train station. Upon staring at the name of the Somalian in a daze, King Khan noticed that his real name "Arish" was in the letters of the Somalian's name.... after playing around with the letters out popped a message.... "Arish is a shaman Gal"
Of course! After meeting his elder doppelganger whose name offered a clue to understanding his effeminate alchemic soul, King Khan fell fast asleep in the train, missing his stop and wound up waking up in Poland.....
This is just a taste of the King Khan Experience that inspired this album.... Now buy it..... I dare you.
