Mark Sultan Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Mark Sultan is described as an entrepreneur on his Wikipedia page for some reason. No citation. There are citations for his being part of the messy garage rock set playing with the likes of Black Lips and King Khan. And Let Me Out is messy garage rock. Guitars, heartfelt vocals, and a sense things could fall apart any second.
Rising star of garage rock, Mark Sultan presents us with two sides of acid-drenched, fuzzy garage punk. Sultan, who has also recorded under the BBQ moniker displays his ability to write classic hooks with instant garage rock classic Let Me Out and psychedelic fuzz racket Be The Blood. 7” on Wick.
He of King Kahn and _ _ _ Show fame, the man born Mark Sultan lobs another dozen hunks of fuzzy psych out into the world. Never a great one for “the crap”, he’s sought to “cut it” (the crap, that is) even more on this record. Most of the tracks were done in one take and the album thus bristles with an off-the-cuff energy that is thrilling even by his high standards of thrillingdom.
