Reconciled after an infidelity-that-can-be-explained or at the very least atoned for, King II opens because the bizarre Sisters are on travel throughout the fateful day Kurt Cobain's suicide is introduced. This undeniably hilarious sequel pits the little jangle pop band we are rooting for opposed to an evil checklist label CEO'd by means of a man who believes in extraterrestrial beings, a variety of nefarious bookers and sound men, drunken "punters," and lunatics and maniacs galore that Jenny, John, bassist Rob, and new and uproariously ridiculous new drummer Raleigh come upon at the zany road.

As II ends (with John getting a role as a P.A. on probably the main ludicrous video shoot in rock history), it units up The hole Crown, a 3rd installment—for Fredrick, with no intending to, and nearly by chance, has written a goddam trilogy.
