Shaa Khan – The World Will End On Friday
Genre: Progressive Rock
The name "Shaa Khan" has no concrete meaning - he is merely a play on words that pleased the musicians sound.
Like many young bands, "Shaa Khan" started by playing the music of their heroes, with a repertoire built on a diet of 'Deep Purple' and 'Led Zeppelin' numbers.
Via a trek into jazz-rock, and then after supporting the likes of 'Earth & Fire', 'UFO' and 'Nektar', the 1976 incarnation had gained a complex and lyrical progressive rock style comparable to 'Grobschnitt', 'Gentle Giant' and 'Druid'.
With dual lead vocalists and inventive instrumental work, their debut album "The World Will End On Friday" was a fine example of the genre, and a surprisingly fresh album stepping on from 'Grobschnitt's' 'Jumbo'.
In August 1978 "Shaa Khan" won the "Rock Festival Würselen '78", at which 40 groups took part from all over the Europe.
