PLAY 100 CLUB TONIGHT and
Reveal New Video
Gun Club co-founder, Gunslinger for The Cramps, Six-string stylist for Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, the legendary Kid Congo Powers and his Pink Monkey Birds plays the WORLD FAMOUS 100 Club tonight! 

Not only that, he has revealed his hew video for the track
"Goldin Browne". Taken from their upcoming album, 'Gorilla Rose' (In The Red, 23rd May 2011) the video is directed by renown photographer
Justin Kosman  at The Harveyville Pron in the Kansas Gymnasium (where the band record their hit albums!) and features an intro by Intoxica Radio DJ Howie Pyro.
As a teenage boy Kid met Gorilla thru seminal weirdo band, The Screamers in the emerging LA Punk music scene of the 70’s. He recalls, “Gorilla Rose was a close and constant presence and influence on The Screamers and me as a young pup.  He was to The Screamers like Bobby Neuwirth was to Dylan, a jester of sorts, sparking many of their great lyric ideas. I still think GORILLA ROSE is the most fabulous nom de plume in history. His unsung specter had been in my mind a lot last year so I decided to title the album GORILLA ROSE to honour his name and bring him into rock n roll’s ongoing conversation.” While editing his fan club newsletters at a haunted Hollywood house, a teenage Kid Congo was also exposed to the sounds of Neu, Nico, Billie Holiday, and the “Susperia” movie soundtrack by Goblin. Along with Gorilla and Kid’s Garage rock pedigree, these past influences found their way back into his new album.

For GORILLA ROSE Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds grabbed producer Jason Ward and hightailed it back to the magik gymnasium at The Harveyville Project, a high school in Kansas and also the scene of the crime of their much acclaimed 2009 release Dracula Boots. Kiki “El Coyote” Solis on bass and Ron “The Cap’n” Miller on drums along with, new Pink Monkey Bird, Jesse “The Candyman” Roberts (from Seattle’s The Ruby Doe) on guitar, keys and vocals firms up Kid Congo’s squawking flock.

Brandishing 13 all original glam-tastic compositions, GORIILA ROSE blasts off with the explosive dance anthem  “Bo Bo Boogaloo” wearing their 60’s Chicano Rock influence on their sleeves. Shake it don’t break it! That’s just the start of a wild ride thru funky but chic decadence (“Goldin Browne”) slip sliding rockabilly  (“Hills Of Pills”) ,Teenage punkdom (“Our Other World”) mystic  Kraut rock (“Bubble Trouble”) , baby-making sleaze (“Catsuit Fruit”),  the best bad Peyote trip you ever took ( “Injun War Crimes.”) and even a velvety call from the beyond (Lullaby in Paradise).   
Finding inspiration in the past is what Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds do best. On this 2011 sonic trip, Kid brings his past into the present and names it after someone flamboyant and inspired. GORILLA ROSE.
