Kid Congo the Pink Monkeybirds Couch

Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds are returning to Australia in April 2024.

Kid Congo has one of the most enviable rock n’ roll resumes in existence. He was a founding member of cowpunk blues outfit The Gun Club, guitarist for legendary psycho-billy purveyors The Cramps, and played with Australia’s own, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

Following the 2022 release of his long-awaited and critically acclaimed memoir, “Some New Kind of Kick”, Kid Congo is making his fourth trip to Australia with long-term cohorts, The Pink Monkey Birds, (fifth if you count The Gun Club tour) in support of their latest album, “That Delicious Vice” out in April via In the Red Records

Recorded in the scorching summer of 2023 in Tucson Arizona at Jim Water’s Waterworks Studio, the band were thrilled to collaborate with LA Chicana punk icon, singer of The Bags and author, Alice Bag, on songs “Wicked World” and “A Beast, a Priest”.

“That Delicious Vice” is Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds’ fifth full-length studio album and marks the band’s first as a three piece. However, for this Australian run, they will be a four-piece thanks to a surprise secret weapon, who will be revealed when they join the first show in Melbourne.
