Video For SPIDER BABY and Europe / UK Dates for November / December 2017

"The Ghost on the stairs. The Vampire’s bite. Better beware there’s a full moon tonight” cackles horror show host Kid Congo Powers as he recites a ghoulish tome in Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds new video,“Spider Baby” now out on In The Red Records . Hatched in their rock n roll cauldron for the best holiday of all time, HALLOWEEN, the stunning Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds pay homage to their favorite 1967 horror cult film “Spider Baby” or “The Maddest Story Ever Told” depending on which monster you ask ! The rollicking song was used in the opening credits of the movie and sung by Lon Chaney Jr., whom (like in the lyrics) has played “Frankenstein , Dracula , and even The Mummy”. In the video Kid doubles as narrator and a mischievous pyromaniac beatnik whom crawls on all fours, sneaks in the dark and delights in fire laden hijinks. Shot and directed by artist Ryan Hill, whom also design’s the band’s album covers, he splatters blood red hues and “boos” in this psychedelic horror house! We leave you, dear reader, with some scary sage advice : “Sit around the fire with a cup of brew. A Fiend and a Werewolf on each side of you. This Cannibal orgy is strange to behold, and the maddest story ever told!”
