King Khan at The Dirty Water

Great show. Eight band members (Khan, keyboard, bass, guitar, drums, trumpet and two saxophones), plus a very Diana Dors-esque go-go dancer dressed like Tura Satana from Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill. All on a stage the size of a good kitchen table.
There was a voodoo stick; good looking crowd of bleached, primped, preened, smashed, tattooed and moustachioed misfits (who were fairly enthusiastic as far as London goes); fantastic music; call and response and the great request, from King Khan, for the audience to 'Clap your hands together... Clap your tits together... Clap your balls together!'
Start practicing that and see them when you can. GI
