Kid Congo conjures William S. Burroughs

Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds have just released a new video for Conjure Man, directed and shot by Aaron Brookner, from the limited-edition 7-inch single recently issued by In The Red. Conjure Man is a creepy new Kid Congo original, while the B-side is a typically twisted take on the Sky Saxon classic Lose Your Mind' off The Steeds iconic 1966 debut LP. Neither track will be featured on the band’s upcoming album, Haunted Head due next month.

Legendary guitar stylist Kid Congo Powers (The Gun Club, The Cramps, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds) and long time cohorts, bassist Kiki Solis (Knife In The Water), drummer Ron Miller (Up The Academy), and guitarist Jesse Roberts (Sandrider, The Ruby Doe) are set to release their third album for In The Red, Haunted Head, on April 30. Check out the Conjure Man clip which prominently features a dreamachine similar to the one created by Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs' "systems adviser" Ian Sommerville depicted above.
