Only three songs into it but I'm declaring that it's light years better than the last KKBBQ album. Good rockin' shit with cool noises and I'd even spin it in public!

OH YEAH - great record!

there's one song i thought sounded really empty when it forst came on and now i can't find it. this record isn't mindblowing by any means, but it's completely solid and it swings and rocks so what else matters? really great performances and production here. must get on wax!

I thought Sultanic Verses was even better than the BBQ records. My favorite jam on it is "We're Sinking."

I dunno man - I think I'm one of the only people who think that the BBQ solo records are better than the KKBBQ stuff...so sue me!

I like this record a lot, and I'm surprised I didn't hear more about it upon its release. Looking forward to the KK/BBQ tour this fall/winter.

Moooooreeee, Mortal Man. I've been digging this one for a while now, someone played that song on one of the garagepunk podcasts, and I bought it the next day.

Mortal Man is my favorite song too.

'Something Wrong' is my favorite song!

no one cares about mark sultan. he's a non-entity in canada, i don't think anyone in montreal even likes him! every other horseshit indie band in that city and this country is drooled over no matter how banal and pointless, as long as they are new, hip, and have gay hair. i truly believe that someday mark sultan will get his due for the the great body of work he has put out over the years...but that time may be many, many years away.

i think the point is that we haven't heard about the album much at all on any media the WE OURSELVES would support. I don't think we're scratching our heads wondering why it's not on MTV and written up in Spin. I haven't even seen it mentioned on Terminal Boredom yet in any great length.

i've played it on my radio show a bunch. I'M DOING MY PART. i care. I care too much.

It can be used for good, or for evil.

good bad, not evil
Posted: Aug 15, 2007 5:08 pm
 
yo!
thanks to those who do enjoy it. the problem with ANY scene is that hype dictates everything - even this one. so, i hardly ever get any mentioned, except with KK&BBQ, probably due to a 'bad rep' or something. and that's fine by me. just enjoy the music and don't ask questions. and 'ottawarockerdude', i don't play in canada. maybe your pals don't care, but i (surprisingly enough) do have fans.

There's only been one update since the album came out, and it was right after its release. Here's the review:

Mark Sultan "Sultanic Verses" LP/CD
With the "Sultanic Verses" Mark Sultan delivers his best outing since the first King Khan and BBQ Show LP, and one of the finest records he's cranked out to date. Stylistically he's all over the place with this one - toy keyboards add a touch of low budget pop to some tracks, there are psych flavored tunes like the fantastic "Unicorn Rainbow Odyssey" (actually a pretty touching song despite what the goofy title would have you believe), stripped down punk scorchers, and of course the greasy rnb infused rock 'n' roll Mark has already proven himself a master of - and the results are both surprisingly cohesive and characteristically authentic. There's less of a "full band" sound than I was expecting getting into this, but it nevertheless sounds unlike anything he's done. I wouldn't go so far as to call this the "Between the Buttons" of Mark's oeuvre since it's still firmly grounded in the aesthetic of his prior records, but the chances taken here and the awesome results thereof do invite the comparison. It's really worth taking a moment to note that his voice sounds as incredible as ever. Mark is HANDS DOWN the best singer in all of rock at the moment - it's not even close. Add to that his unwavering vision and singular songwriting talent and you've got a recipe that can't be beat. If you like rock 'n' roll there's really no conceiveable way you won't be ga-ga over this LP.(SB)

Halloween at Lenny's.

And I'm partial to 'Cursed World'.

I just got off work and I'm going home to play this right now. "We're Sinking" is ace with a simple solo that fits the song perfectly. Love the toy piano.

i love that "warpath" tune on here.
Posted: Aug 16, 2007 4:10 am
 
Can't wait for that NYC Show!

Hey ottawarockerdude, this is not true at all, montreal people fucking loves
what mark does. For instance, the number of times people ask him to play is just plain crazy. Its his choice to not play here, we respect that but it doesnt mean he aint got no fans or somethin'...
