here is the full new album of the Berlin resident notorious Canadian garage rocker King Khan and his big band The Shrines. But first some words about his previous things.


His infamous garage rock band was The Spaceshits between 1995-99. It was well known for their violent stage shows. Their sets lasted no longer than 10 to 15 minutes because the band or members of the audience would create disturbances, including fireworks or food fights. The band’s shows would lead them to be effectively blacklisted from many venues in Montreal. During the European tour King Khan has decided to remain in Berlin, hereby the Spaceshits disbanded. In same year he has formed his garage rock psychedelic soul outfit The King Khan & The Shrines. The band’s percussionist, Ron Streeter formerly played for Ike and Tina Turner, Bo Diddley, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau. The organist is Fredovitch, the French multi-instrumentalist.

He has some other projects. For example there is The King Khan & BBQ Show with an ex-Spaceshits mate Mark Sultan. Another one is the Almighty Defenders. Their story has begun in Asia. During the Black Lips’ 2009 tour of India, following an incident at a show during which Cole Alexander kissed fellow bandmember Ian St. Pe and exposed his private parts on-stage the band fled from the country before the arrest. The tour was canceled and they went to Berlin to Khan, where Mark Sultan stayed just then. And over a course of eight boozy days they laid down 11 tracks together. In same year he collaborated with another Montrealer musician Bloodshot Bill under the name of Tandoori Knights.
