Surf! Savage! Sacrifice! H.P. Lovecraft meets the Beach Boys. The tribal idols of The Tiki Kings combine dark rituals and eerie masks with feel-good surf music. Professor T.J. Scottsdale tells their horrid tale, while Queen Ataata, Tō, KuKu, Bi, Matafaga use their powers to make the audience transe dance. Really good fun, even the virgin sacrifice. I was invited to chronicle their latest gig at the Ponyhof in Frankfurt.
