The Sadies release split 7″ with King Khan, on tour now (Brooklyn tonight)
The Sadies have a new 7" out today which is a split with fellow Canadian King Khan. It's a high concept record where King Khan and The Sadies each recount, Rashomon style, the same debaucherous, hallucinogens-enhanced night. King Khan's song is titled "Old Gunga Din" while The Sadies' Dallas Good paints King Khan as "The Most Despicable Man Alive." King Khan elaborates:
I met Dallas Good when I was about 18 years old... For many years we would sneer and jeer at each other for no explainable reason... Could it have been a deep sexual tension, well of course it was, anyways those strange emotions turned rancid and volatile up until one day Jon Spencer wanted to cover a King Khan & BBQ Show song... Dallas refused to play it and his only reasoning was because 'King Khan is the most despicable man alive.'
This news travelled fast amongst our little community and this beef was thrown on the fire and doused in beautiful laughter, LSD, and a blood brotherhood that is stronger than said "rock" in "Like a Rock". I proudly exclaim my profound love for Dallas Good, he is my brother and this single is proof that Indian men are built like brick shithouses and make love like snakes.
Dallas adds, "Technically, King Khan is probably not THEE most despicable man alive. Definitely top 10 though.” Both tracks are done in old school Western story-song style. Listen to the whole thing below.
The Sadies are currently in Brooklyn and play their second show of a two-night stand at Union Pool tonight (tickets). From there, The Sadies head to Philadelphia, Montreal and more. They'll also be on tour in Europe this spring. All dates are listed below.
King Khan, meanwhile, features on the new Red Mass album that's out today.
