CD Reviews

Simply good music.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Abnormals Anonymous is simply a breathtaking work of art. The music of Kid Congo (former Gun Club, Cramps, and Bad Seeds), along with Sally Norvell and other band members, is an unearthly dive into a surrealistic, slow motion world of velvet dreams and addictions. I have seen them live two times and still find something new and enticing with their sound and general stage presence.This album ignores the trends of today's boring music scene and takes you into a Twin Peaks kinda world were you see beautiful yet disturbing images.I strongly recommend this album to anyone who enjoys bands such as Nick Cave, and the likes of.Also Kid Congo is a pretty cool guy who has paid his dues in the musical underground. So rest assured that you will be investing in intelligently written and performed music.Allen Gator"

"Kid Congo Powers is a genius on the guitar, a lovely guy, and a stylish cat! Unfortunately, his presence on this CD is not as perceptible as it should be. However, it is still a great listen. Can't wait until he releases that album he recorded in Mexico with Khan. And Kid, if you're reading this, COME BACK TO DUBLIN SOON."
Tom Waits meets the Gun Club?

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Kid Congo Powers and Sally Norvell got together and made a great drinking record. Stories like Tom Waits, swampy R&B sensibilities of Jeffrey Lee Pearce, and boy-girl harmonies straight out of the X canon yield a strong set of songs that bear repeat listening well. Perfect for a late-night staring out a window and regretting the past."
