Kid Congo Powers & the Pink Monkey Birds


Having played in a bevy of alt-rock’s weirdest bands, including the Cramps, the Gun Club, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Kid Congo Powers plays glorious anti-pop in his solo group. Essentially psychedelic-leaning garage rock à la the Nuggets comp, Powers’s head-nodders cover such left field topics as finding a peanut and, uh, “Black Santa.” It’s all good fun and sometimes he wears a cape. With K-Holes.
