Kid Congo Powers has had a busy 2022. He released a memoir, “Some Kind of Kick”, an “intimate coming of age tale, of a young, queer, Chicano kid, growing up in a suburb east of East LA, in the mid-‘70s, exploring his sexual identity through glam rock” and eventually being a member of three iconic bands, The Gun Club, The Cramps and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, among many other musical and artistic accomplishments.

He also released a new album with The Wolfmanhattan Project, his group with The Gories’ Mick Collins and former Sonic Youth drummer Bob Bert, as well as a live album with his group Kid Congo Powers & The Near Death Experience where he’s backed by Australians Harry Howard, brother of the late Rowland S. Howard (The Birthday Party, Crime & The City Solution), and Dave Graney of The Moodists.
