Mark Sultan
Mark Sultan Mark Sultan, also known as BBQ, has been a well-respected fixture on the garage rock ‘n’ roll scene for a some years, most recently for his role in ‘The King Khan & BBQ Show’, releasing records on labels like Bomp!, Crypt and Norton. Known for hit songwriting (covered by acts like Atlas Sound) and an incredible voice (comparisons to Sam Cooke and Gerry Roslie abound), his most recent project, the eponymous ‘Mark Sultan’ is a further taste of what he is known for pioneering (fusing doo-wop, garage and punk) but also an exploration of psychedelic, pop, country and noise. He released a well-received self-titled album released in 2007 on In The Red Records. His most recent release is a 7” on Sub Pop Records, but a new full-length album should be out this year, showcasing his current tour line-up of himself, Choyce (CPC Gangbangs, Red Mass) and Simon Wojan (King Khan & The Shrines, Cloudland Canyon). Their last tour was in Europe at the end of 2008 with the Black Lips.
