Hanni’s 60-minute Mercury Lounge set was a snarling progression of engine revs, eschewing slower material, like his album’s shuffling “Heartbreak Hotel” cover, for amped-up twists like the Cramps’ “Human Fly”. Hanni, guitarist/keyboardist Hayden Tobin and drummer Nicky Fleming-Yaryan (there was no bass) stuck to the script for most of Will The Guns Come Out favorites like the three-chord thunder of “Build.Destroy.Rebuild.” and essential don’t-judge-a-crook-by-his-cover anthem “Dead Wrong,” but the most compelling moments came from bursts of solo shredding in the few open-ended numbers. -[CMJ]

One night after hitting Mercury Lounge (review above), LA blues-garage axeman Hanni El Khatib and Sundelles, on tour together, played another NYC show at Knitting Factory (on Sunday, 4/29). Check out more pictures from the Brooklyn show, along with a new video for “Roach Cock” from Hanni’s 8″ record that also features a cover of The Cramps favorite “Human Fly”, below…
