Kid Congo Powers started The Gun Club with Jeffrey Lee Pierce and was also in The Cramps. He was also a long standing member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and his other projects include Kid and Khan and Congo Norvell.
If Kid is in the band, the band is automatic legends.
His band Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds have been grooving clubs and releasing records for about a decade. Going from being in the band to being a front man has been a pretty cool transition.
