Is King Ueli about the beer, the snowboarder, the folk hero from Appenzell? Or is it the Swiss version of Till Eulenspiegel? Many questions, many answers, which Bikini Beach owe. But who needs a clear answer when the wafting psych riffs of the second single from the upcoming record Appetizer cast such a spell over you? It's fitting that bassist Lotti sings icy "I got nothing to say to you/So please just go away" over her straight-forward bass line before the trio hits a snag and loses themselves in a percussive bridge fuelled by vocal choruses in the best Datsuns manner. The king is dead, long live King Ueli.
