Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds

14 November - Madame Moustache, Brussels

The Pink Monkey Birds is the brainchild of Brian Tristan, alias Kid Congo, who certainly earned his rock stripes as a former member of The Cramps, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and The Gun Club. Together, he and his Birds create a whole uncompromising world, where seedy go-go weirdness is elevated to high art. On their two albums, Dracula Boots and Gorilla Rose, psychedelic imagery stands shoulder to shoulder with southern soul and ’60s Chicano rock, creating a unique blend of soul-fired, funked-up rock’n’roll.
