Rat-Tribution Now 12" Vinyl

$30.00


Tracklist:

1. Rat Eater Raga (10:33)
2. The Reckoning (9:26)

King Khan’s Commissioned Work »Rat-Tribution Now« is based on a tale told to him by his North Indian father. King Khan, dedicated the short story inspired by it »to the only rat eater I have ever loved,« referring to the American painter Joe Coleman and his infamous spoken word performance in the 1988 movie »Mondo New York,« which involved live rats. Together Coleman and Khan performed the piece in New York City on Halloween 2019, when King Khan was canonized by Coleman and made into one of his art pieces. Parts of this stunning portrait will be animated in »Rat-Tribution Now.« King Khan recruited his daughter Saba Lou, also an established visual artist and songstress, to help tell the tale. The musical part involves King Khan revisiting his Indian heritage in the form of a »Rat-Eaters Raga,« a contribution from American punk rock legends Dead Moon, and a hypnotic narration by the »Infamous Rat Eater« Joe Coleman himself. Both ambitious in scale and captivating as every lysergic film experiment should be, »Rat-Tribution Now« deals with the nefarious origins of the goddess Kali, exposing the poverty stricken community of the Musahar (»Rat Eaters«) people of Northern India and supernatural feminist empowerment. It is dedicated to the memory of the thousands of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls of Canada.
