King of Punk is the ultra-cult LP from 1978 by Lower East Side provocateur David Peel, the missing link between tribal-folk-skronk (Fugs, Godz, etc), '70s street rock, and nihilist-squat punk. Featuring irresistible choruses over walls of fuzz and caveman chords repeating ad infinitum in a primal call to a stone-age god. Backed by fifteen rhythm guitar players, nearly as many bass players? and a cowbell. Lyrics so outrageous & over the top, music so loud that you have to hear it to believe it. Peel, who shared '60s stages with John Lennon & Yoko Ono, The Stooges, and MC5, and had a small hit with "I Like Marijuana" and released albums in the '70s such as The Pope Smokes Dope and The American Revolution, decides to out-punk the punks in '70s New York City and show The Ramones, The Dictators or The Dead Boys who the King of Punk really is! And all the while answers (in 11 minutes) the pressing question: "Who Killed Brian Jones?!"
