out of stock

kid congo's cocktail of fuzz guitars, New Orleans drum beats & soulful strut bass lines is a retro-dream, sonic ambrosia at its most potent.

Legendary guitar stylist Kid Congo Powers (The Gun Club, The Cramps, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) & his longtime cohorts offer the purest distillation of their collective powers. includes a tribute to actress susan tyrell ('su su'), drenched in the vibrant sounds of kitsch vintage garage, a morphing of Jerry Lee Lewis with Phyllis Diller ('Killer Diller') & the plain ol’ insanity of romantic love ('Dance Me Swamply'). the title ballad hits home with shards of lead guitar insanity under the psyche-searching vocals. put simply, no-one re-enlivens swampy garage drama like these guys.
