Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds 

The legendary Kid Congo Powers (The Gun Club, The Cramps, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds), bassist Kiki Solis (Baby Baby Dance With Me, Knife in The Water, Rhythm of Black Lines), drummerRon Miller (Switch Hitter, Up The Academy). “La Araña Es La Vida” rocks n rolls it’s way thru a planet of Glamazons (Psychic Future), blisters with the tricks of a “Magic Machine” then gets to work out a low rider groove on “Chicano Studies”. Tales of gender bending, disembodied heads, gente from La Puente and even a TCB-era, Elvis-inspired rave up on “Karate Monkey” is merely a smatter of the magic on this platter.

A limited number of colored vinyl comes with a flexi disc; a cover of the Psychedelic Furs’ “We Love You”, plus an original tune; “Anything To Say”, with the CD featuring a bonus track; “Nasty Hat”, as well as completely different artwork from the vinyl. The world is a wild and woolly place and with “La Araña”, Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds will continue to mirror it.
