Mark Sultan aka BBQ is returning to New Zealand next week for four solo shows off the back of his tour around Australia with oft-partner in crime King Khan. The pair released the fantastic collaborative album Bad News Boys earlier this year, but BBQ has more meat up his sleeve.

The prolific Canadian native has a solo record (whose title remains a mystery) set to drop later this year through famed Los Angeles label In The Red Recordings. The album, as Sultan freely admits, has been heavily informed by the 1960s sounds of "acne-ridden pizza-face boys with no friends or girlfriends, singing about sad things". And from what we've heard so far it sounds pretty darn promising. With his impending visit, UnderTheRadar thought it would be a good time to get in contact with the one-man-band who dislikes one-man-bands for a grand old time discussing karaoke, endless touring, lucid dreaming and jingles...
