A cult figure, underrated gem, and sorcerer, Mark Sultan continues to hammer out releases while touring incessantly, showing no urge to quit.
“It’s weird… Rock’n’Roll started out as my religion, but has turned into a personal responsibility, to do my part in keeping it all alive.”
After a legacy of albums and 45s on some of the most respected labels out there (In The Red, Goner, Crypt, Wick/Daptone, Sub Pop, Fat Possum, Bomp!, Norton, etc…), and an impressive list of projects (The King Khan & BBQ Show, Ding-Dongs, Almighty Defenders, Les Sexareenos, Spaceshits, etc…), his latest album, ‘Let Me Out’ (Dec 2018, Modern Sky/Dirty Water/Burger) is something else. He had to learn a few instruments, and brush up on his production skills, as he painstakingly played and recorded the whole thing at his Sound Imperfection studio, in Berlin.
“Mark Sultan breathes fire into genres that, in most hands, only gather dust”
“(Sultan) doesn’t simply revive old sounds and old excitements, he ingests them and digests them, and regurgitates them as something new and personal.”
