Dance Me Swamply

I've been enjoying the new Kid Congo Powers album, Haunted Head. It's not going to change your life or anything but it's a good ten tracker, a bit swampy, a bit subterranean. On a lot of the songs Kid Congo and his Pink Monkey Birds sound like they're the lounge band at the gates of somewhere grubby and sticky but strangely attractive. Garage-lounge you could call it.

It is my duty to like KCP, as he once touched Nick Cave, I think.

KCP was a Bad Seed. And a Cramp. And a Gun Clubber. Fair pedigree.
