King Charles : The shamanistic future of Rock ‘n’ Roll


Gig of the night so far at Sound City here in Liverpool, has to be ‘King Charles’. Making a sound like some alchemistic combination of bulgarian folk  and new wave spikiness, mixed with guitar heroics and then subtle and beautiful lyrics blended with melodies verging on those that even a siren would desire…They amazed and mesmorised. That they have a front man who leads with the shamanistic intensity of Jim Morrisson and the DNA of Frank Zappa, means they can only do one thing – captivate. Supreme musicians, songs that need hearing again and again and a show that is a pure expression of the place where music takes us. Perfect in every way. Give them a listen.
