Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds: Haunted Head (Vinyl LP)
In the Red Records
Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release from the former Gun Club guitarist. Haunted Head is the third LP the quartet has oozed out for in the Red. Legendary guitar stylist Kid Congo Powers (The Gun Club, the Cramps, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and longtime cohorts bassist Kiki Solis (Knife in the Water), drummer Ron Miller (Up the Academy) and guitarist Jesse Roberts (Sandrider, the Ruby Doe) take matters into their own mitts by having Roberts engineer and Miller mix the record at the now well-known Harveyville Project High School in Kansas. With the Pink Monkey Birds' cocktail of fuzz guitars, New Orleans drum beats, soulful strut bass lines and sonic ambrosia at it's most potent, Haunted Head offers the purest distillation of the group's powers.
