Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds Live at Third Man Records 7” Out Tomorrow

Posted by on 26 October 2017

Known for his work with The Gun Club, The Cramps and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Kid Congo and his band, The Pink Monkey Birds, have carved out a place for themselves in the competitive world of underground music by taking the building blocks of primeval rock and roll and pushing them to their furthest conceivable limits. This philosophy will undoubtedly strike a chord in fans of foundational punk music (and Ramones fans especially).

Their live recording from the Third Man Records Nashville Blue Room, officially out tomorrow, October 27th, features two banger tracks — “Psychic Future” and “La Araña” — hot off their 2016 album La Araña Es La Vida on In The Red Records. Compared to the studio tracks, these live recordings are just slightly faster, a bit tidier and definitely more urgent. The shining star has gotta be the rhythm section, especially on "La Araña", which belts out an addictive thump from start to finish.

Limited edition blue 7"s will be available EARLY to attendees TONIGHT at NY Night Train Haunted Hop Halloween Tour w/ Jonathan Toubin at Third Man Records Cass Corridor in Detroit, which also happens to feature a live performance by Kid Congo! Tickets are available here. Wear a costume. Bring your dancing shoes. Don't be late!

Can't make it? Order the black vinyl 7" now HERE.
