“If there’s a Patient Zero in garage rock’s recent shift from emulating the troglodytic stomp of teenage Stones wannabes in 1965 to embracing the Golden Oldies pop and doo-wop of the years just before Beatlemania, it’s probably Mark “BBQ” Sultan, who releases albums of catchy, clever garage-pop more frequently than most people buy shoes.”- Chicago Reader
Mark Sultan has been a long-time fixture in the 'garage rock' scene, having played in such bands as The King Khan & BBQ Show, The Almighty Defenders (Sultan, Khan, Black Lips), BBQ, The Ding-Dongs (with Bloodshot Bill), The Spaceshits, Les Sexareenos, Mind Controls, etc... and has released a bunch of records on labels like In The Red, Last Gang, Crypt, Fat Possum, Dirtnap, Goner, Sub Pop, Vice, Bomp!, Norton, Sympathy For The Record Industry, etc... He has toured North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia , Israel and everywhere in between. People like Jon Spencer and Bradford Cox have covered his songs. His voice is often cited as being one of the finest rock'n'roll voices of today, and has been called 'patient zero' as a main influence in the modern garage/doo-wop sound. A cult figure, an underrated gem, and sorcerer, Mark continues to hammer out top-shelf releases and songs while touring incessantly, his live act said to sound and feel like 'a haunted stereo playing pirate radio, complete with all of the static and anticipation'. Some have also said: 'The best one-man band going, absolutely devoid of insincerity or gimmick', and: 'pure magic'."
