Kid Congo Powers and the Pink Monkey Birds ‘Rare As The Yeti’

Kid Congo Powers survived being in both The Gun Club and The Cramps. His real name is/was Brian Tristan but I think, especially looking at the picture, Kid Congo Powers suits him better. Last year he released an lp, Dracula Boots, which this track is taken from. It’s a blast of cool modern garage rock, with interesting lyrics (‘You’re rare as the yeti, not quite as pretty’). The rest of the album is in a similar vein, some funkier songs, some covers, some instrumentals, some more garage rock. It was recorded live in a high school gym, and sounds like it (and I mean that in a good way).
By the way, just noticed, my hundredth post.
