mark sultan - the war on rock n roll

IN THE RED records is celebrating RECORD STORE DAY by releasing a live MARK SULTAN lp, entitled THE WAR ON ROCK N ROLL......  this is essential i promise, as Mark Sultan is one of the best live garage/punk acts around.....

and if you know of his other bands (the spaceshits, les sexareenos, king khan and bbq show, mind controls), you understand why this is so exciting.......

THE WAR ON ROCK N ROLL is available as a free download just in case you can't get yr hands on one of the limited lps on RSD...... and here's what Mark Sultan has to say about the War on RnR lp.....

"In The Red Records has decided to release this recording on vinyl to celebrate Record Store Day, and I am thrilled. While you listen to this recording, keep in mind that it is one take, live, and that the sides of the LP split the recording, obviously due to vinyl's time limitations upon pressing.At the time of this recording, yes, I was hellbent on converting my live sound to what you hear on this LP. It had been my first and only attempt at this sound, and while I am myself curious how I pulled it off in that one take, and while I really enjoy how it sounds, I never tried doing it again. Maybe I will for some of these upcoming shows."
