AllMusic Review by

This 1993 new edition of The Band That Would Be King comes with 11 previously unreleased songs and a second and outstanding version of "Sugarcane." The album is a perfect medley of humorous lo-fi rock & roll hit singles and little experimentations. The band for this album lined up Jad Fair, Don Fleming from Gumball, and Mark Jickling, credited here as Mr. J. Rice. Icing on the cake: Kramer, Georges Cartwright, Fred Frith, and John Zorn are in on this.
