King Krule on Letterman

Last night, Late Show With David Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer paid tribute to Lou Reed (you can hear a bit of “Walk On The Wild Side” in the video below). And it makes sense that the night’s musical guest was another gnarled, mercurial sing-speaker with a thousand-yard stare and a preference for skronky guitar tunings. King Krule made his American TV debut on the show, playing the beat-poet bugout “Easy Easy” and generally failing to impress Letterman. (“Very well-dressed, don’t ya think? Dressed up for the show!”) Watch the performance below.

King Krule’s debut album 6 Feet Beneath The Moon is out now on True Panther/XL.

  1. Music guests don’t generally thrill Letterman unless they are the Foo Fighters or attractive women

  2. Letterman is not a funny-man, he is massive douche.

  3. Paul was diggin it tho.

    My favorite letterman reaction is after Divine Fits played…
    “I decided I’m going to manage you guys. And then we’ll go around to a lot of bad bars and pick fights.”
