A look back at Kid Congo Powers and the Pink Monkey Birds charming the devoted at London’s Nambucca

Kid Congo Powers and the Pink Monkey Birds

The ghost of Lux Interior had his hand upon our shoulder as we raised a bottle to celebrate his 70th birthday.

As Muse cover The Cramps’ New Kind Of Kick, we toast the anniversary of our own Zombie Dance by looking back on the always amazing Kid Congo Powers who played a packed out Nambucca earlier this year.

Relaxed and ever charming, he opined that he was loving married life, and was missing home. Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds went on to play one of the most competent and electrifying sets we have ever heard them play.
