Product Description

Turkey's techno sleaze-queen Khan breaks out the broken English for his third long-player on Matador Records. No Comprendo features a wealth of well-to-do artistic collaborators all with similarly unhealthy obsessions to "El Turco Loco" himself. Françoise Cactus bemoans her lack of adequately ample bosoms on "Les Gros Nichons" although unless you speak French you'd be none the wiser. Ex-Cramp Kid Congo Powers comes on like a cannibalistic lothario on "Why Hurt Flesh?" and graces the even less salutary "Vaseline". Beyond the pale (moon), "The Wolf", finds Khan howling like a mad dog over a stalking soundtrack as he tears his prey limb from limb in a no-holds-barred bout of predatory sex. Jon Spencer quakes, shakes, hollers and yelps like the ghost of Screamin' Jay on "Monster" and the falsetto on "Fishies Funk". Veteran blues-picker Andre Williams dribbles drunken rubbish on "Mercy Mama" and valium torch singer Julee Cruise sings farewell to her lover on "Say Goodbye" as she dispatches him six feet deep. Digital Hardcore destructress Hanin Elias sets a lyrical honey trap in between The Bee's dizzy distortion pyrotechnics. Diabolic soprano, Diamanda Galas reveals a most polite banshee wail on the eerie River Styx drift of "Aman". Musically this is techno dragged kicking and screaming back to the Mississippi Delta by way of the sleaze-strewn streets of the Lower East Side, Manhattan. Psycho-sexual dance music with a gutter funk stank and a no-wave allure. --Chris Campion

5.0 out of 5 stars A sinister pleasure! 14 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
I hadn't heard of Khan until himself and Kid Congo Powers exploded unannounced onto stage at the Empire music hall in Belfast. The gig was outrageously good - so is this album. Its a delicious celebration of sinister sleazy sex, blues lyrics dripped over a blunted experimental techno soundscape. This album makes for an addictive listen, its primal, hypnotic and compelling. If you need any more persuasion - try looking for a bad review of this on the net. Go on, I dare you . . . . !

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Cocks don't make it wrong 15 Oct 2012
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Andre Williams, Diamanda Galas, Kid Congo, Jon Spencer Julee Cruise, drooling filth over techno blues riffs. This is a gift to those who want to grow old disgracefully. Never heard of the main man Khan before. He has however assembled an impressive cast to deliver a left field sonic shudderer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Khan is dope 9 Sep 2003
By easy - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'm loving this disc more and more with each listen. At first it seems a little too varried, with out any consistent themes, but upon further listen, one discovers a deeply surreal experience. It's like listening to a David Lynch production, a dark underworld of sex, crime, drugs and fantasy. I would put this up there with Jimi Tenor. It's been a couple of years since this was released...I hope Khan is working on a follow up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Khan - No Comprendo 1 Mar 2011
By scoundrel - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The ever independent and individualistic Khan embraces vocals on NO COMPRENDO -- which might be, ironically, his more pop-accessible album thus far. The French electropop of "Les Gros Nichons" probably won't find much airplay, but it's Gallic charm is undeniable. Kid Congo Powers, on "Why Hurt Flesh," continues the cabaret from hell sound reminiscent of his work with Nick Cave, but now placed in an electronic framework, though the guitars are still menacing, a mood which continues on the dubby "The Wolf" and the blues-influenced "Monster" and "Mercy Mama." Julee Cruise adds her ethereal voice to the Latin-tinged "Say Goodbye" and Diamanda Galas goes quasi-operatic on the eerie "Aman." But the overall effect of the album is uneven -- seems like a concept album when the concept isn't fully thought out. But there's no misunderstanding the individual tracks.
