Kid Congo Powers & The Pink Monkey Birds – Gorilla Rose (In The Red)
“Gorilla Rose elevates seedy go-go weirdness to the level of high art” – The Dublin Evening Herald
The Cramps. The Gun Club. The Bad Seeds. As CVs go, that’s pretty much untouchable. And after a few presumably lost years, the MIGHTY Kid Congo Powers has a proper band – the Pink Monkey Birds – a deal with one of the cooler US labels, and has made a stone cold killer second album. A kind of garage / rockabilly / Latino / funk / soul vibe. There’s even some Gibbytronics. Menacing as a hoodlum with a flickknife, camp as a hoodlum with a flickknife in a John Waters movie. And judging by his show up in Newcastle this summer, on cracking live form at the moment too.
