Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds
Get greasy in the psychedelic swamps of rock 'n' roll with Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds! A founding member of The Gun Club and erstwhile guitarist for The Cramps and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the legendary Kid Congo Powers has garage punk swagger in spades. He makes his first trip to Australia with long-term cohorts The Pink Monkey Birds for a night of raw, sonic ambrosia featuring a heady mix of fuzz guitars, New Orleans drum beats and bass lines dripping with soul.
The Whips
The Whips
Power-pop sleaze, glammed-up garage, raw surf and unlimited hooks with innocent self-aware knack for pop, while harnessing the spirit of pre-punk and 50's rock rebellion.
Scantron
Scantron
A sumptuous extension of rock and roll tradition. Northeast soul. Two guitars, bass, drums, farfisa. 3-minute songs, or less.


After a year touring every dive bar east of the Rockies with Low Cut Connie, Jimmy Scan and Billy Tron joined forces with George M Murphy to form SCANTRON, a high-energy, no-holds-barred garage rock outfit. Fortified at a secret location near Bear, Delaware, they have been imbibing Genesee Cream Ale and recording hits ever since.
