7" Series 751: Hanni El Khatib – Dead Wrong

I discovered Hanni El Khatib thanks to my buddy David Lapof, who showed me the way to the “Loved One” video. My buddy David knows me well, I became a fan immediately and got myself the “Dead Wrong” and “Build.Destroy.Rebuild” 7″s, discovering The Allah-Las on the way.

“Dead Wrong” is an original El Khatib, flipside “You Rascal You” is a cover of a 1930’s song written by Sam Theard, and since done by Clarence Williams, Louis Armstrong and Louis Prima, among others.

This is his second single, boasting two El Khatib originals. Both tracks, like the ones on the previous single, can also be found on his wonderful first album Will The Guns Come Out (Spotify).

7" Series 751: Hanni El Khatib – Human Fly

His rendition of The Cramps“Human Fly” was featured in a car commercial, then got a digital single release, and it was apparently included on the European LP version of Will The Guns Come Out. And this year it was released on this 8″ yes 8″ vinyl, with the original “Roach Cock” on the flip.

El Khatib has been recording his second LP this year with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. That should be good.
