Hanni El Khatib – Will The Guns Come Out
Hanni El Khatib is a Palestinian-Filipino American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist songwriter and producer as well as visual director and co-owner of the Los Angeles-based independent record label Innovative Leisure. He was described by The Guardian as a “former skate-punk raised on vintage rock and R&B [who] is keeping the spirit of 76 alive with his primal raunch ‘n’ roll.” His debut album Will The Guns Come Out was released on Innovative Leisure on September 27, 2011. It was described by the Los Angeles Times as “a taut, muscular collection of rock ‘n’ roll” and by The Guardian as “if Joe Strummer came back as an angry young Filipino-Palestinian American”. The album features a cover of the 1931 song “You Rascal You” most famously recorded by Louis Armstrong.
