    ...broad demented grins on their faces... This apparently is a regular King Khan gig. And they effortlessly move from brilliant James Brown style funk to sub pop retro punk in the time it takes for a well struck chord to ring out. Pretty special, as more than one punter said tonight 'how come we haven't come across these before'? How come indeed, thanks Peter for making it happen. We've been enlightened!!

      Ooops, here's the first part of my review, I must get smaller thumbs or a bigger smartphone... :) The guitar player walks limbo style through the audience, King Khan gets lost in the crowd, the horn section and keyboard player go AWOL, thrashing percussion instruments along the way, broad......

    Sorry I didn't meet up with ye. Echo the comments below, I had a broad grin on my face for nigh on the entire gig! Immense.

    I thought coming into it that King Khan was going to be the showman of the band, not by a longshot. They were all giving it socks!

    What can you say? Absolutely brilliant. Its like seeing Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Sly & the Family Stone and Sun Ra in one tight package (pardon the pun) -- even better than the last gig, superb. Possible gig of the year.

    Hey gang, we'll be meeting in the Whelans front bar tomorrow around 8pm. My number is[masked], so give me a ring or text when you're around and we'll congregate somewhere near the bar. No stage times yet, but KK&theS will probably be onstage around 9 - 10pm -- should be a great one, see you tomorrow!
