King Missile


King Missile

King Missile sind eine Alternative-Rock-Band aus den USA. King Missile existiert seit 1986 in verschiedenen Erscheinungsformen um Sänger und Lyriker John S. Hall und war zeitweise der wirtschaftliche Anker des Labels Shimmy Disc. Musikalisch bewegt sich die Band meist in den Bereichen von Rock, Hard Rock und experimentellem Rock. Die Texte von John S. Hall sind witzige oder ironische Betrachtungen, düstere Geschichten mit latentem Horror und Drogenvisionen oder Stories über sexuelle Obsessionen, die Hall entweder singt oder (mit bemerkenswert klarer Artikulation) zur Musik spricht. Zu ihren bekanntesten Stücken zählen der Alternative-Radio-Hit "Detachable Penis" (über die Vor- und Nachteile eines abnehmbaren Penis) und "Martin Scorsese" (eine Hommage an den Regisseur voller absurder Gewaltphantasien).
