    FILMED BY CARBIE WARBIE! http://www.carbiewarbie.com My ACE photographs of Kid Congo are being hosted on the popular Aussie music website, The Dwarf, Get greasy in the psychedelic dirty 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. Some personal observations! I spoke to The Johnny's drummer Billy Pommer Jr after this gig and he tells me that Poison Ivy from The Cramps has given Powers a licence to perform some classic Cramps song live on stage. It was so great to hear some of my all time FAV songs live. The Cramps at Festival Hall on their Date WIth Elvis tour, still remains as my all time favourite gig! Special guests at this show during the encore was Kim Salmon on guitar playing a RIP SNORTIN' STONKIN' version of The Gun Club's 'Jack On Fire'. Exemplary guitar work from Kim! Here is a little bit of back history. In 1983 The Gun Club toured Australia and our local cowpunk band, The Johnny's were the support band. Jeffrey Lee Pierce turned up only with his bass player Patricia Morrison, rather than a full band. Spencer P. Jones filled in with this Gun Club tour and he also became Jeffrey's drinking buddy. For the final song of the night a moustachioed Spencer P Jones came on stage and performed "The Lie" from The Gun Club's EP 'Death Party'. What an epic way to finish such an amazing night. Loki Lockwood tells me that the day before Kid Congo and Spencer P Jones laid down three tracks on this studio, including one epic long piece that has three movements.

      FILMED BY CARBIE WARBIE. THE LIVING LEGENDS SERIES AT THE TOTE: FRIDAY 11, SATURDAY 12 & SUNDAY 13JULY The Leaps and Bounds Music Festival proudly presents the Living Legends series across three consecutive nights honouring three renowned Melbourne based musicians with worldwide reputations. They rarely receive the attention they duly deserve and the lack of commercial expectation has allowed them to continue to grow creatively and produce music on their own terms, inspiring and mentoring other musicians. All three regularly gig in various Melbourne venues, usually to a much smaller crowd than they deserve but that is not why they do it. They are rock’n roll soldiers, working in the trenches, when really they should be Generals. Kim Salmon, Spencer P Jones and Charlie Owen, we salute you. It is a coincidence that the three are or have been guitarists in the Australian super-group the Beasts of Bourbon, each player has been prolific for over 30 years and have an incredible musical catalogue. The three shows will be take place at the Tote over one weekend, Friday 11th, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th July. Each night will have a focus on one of the ‘living legends’: First up is Kim Salmon on Friday 11th July with a cool cast of musicians playing from his catalogue which includes the Scientists, Kim Salmon & the Surrealists, Antenna, the Business, the Darling Downs, Salmon and Beasts of Bourbon. The Scientists, formed by Kim Salmon in the late 70s, are considered precursors of grunge. Saturday 12th July sees interstate musicians, peers, young bands and some of his own band members on the Tote’s stage in appreciation of Spencer P Jones. The music of the Johnnys, Beasts of Bourbon, Hell to Pay, as well as Spencer P Jones with the Last Gasp, Cow Penalty, the Escape Committee and the Nothing Butts will be performed. The final night, Sunday 13th July is all about Charlie Owen, one of Australia’s most revered guitarists and wingmen. The live showcase of Owen’s career includes material by Louis Tillet & His Cast of Aspersions, the New Christs, the Divinyls, the Working Class Ringos, Tex, Don & Charlie, Tendrils, the Dark Horses, Beasts of Bourbon and more. The honoured musicians themselves will not be performing on the night – but they will be there. Saturday 12th July – from 7pm With Adalita, Dan Brodie, Geoff Corbett (SixFtHick, Bris), Tom Lyngcoln (Nation Blue/Harmony), Sly Faulkner, Cherrywood, Greta Mob (Syd), Pink Tiles, Sons of Lee Marvin, Space Junk, the Cheats and more to be announced.

                  NB: The end of this song is missing due to filling up my memory card. The Melbourne music scene is full of secrets. Surprise midnight gigs from international acts, backyard jams in houses in the suburbs and sometimes just some good friends that haven't seen each other in years getting together for a fun night out on a stage. No wonder I call this vibrant music town, "Melbourne Rock Central". Spencer P Jones played with the classic cowpunk outfit, The Johnnys, who supported the very first Violent Femmes tour to Australia back in the 80's. Just a few days before, when the reformed Violent Femmes performed an epic performance at The Falls Festival at Lorne, Spencer was invited on stage to play on a couple of songs. Violent Femmes' lead singer/songwriter Gordon Gano was proudly wearing a Spencer P Jones T-Shirt at Falls. LOVEFEST! So when James Young the owner of The Cherry Bar contacted me that Gordon and Spencer were going to perform tonight at The Cherry Bar, I just hightailed it down there to see what special musical treats were in store. With Spencer on guitar and Gordon on violin they performed a bunch of Spencer songs. They even did a tribute to Lou Reed with the violins being a perfect sound with an extraordinary cover of The Velvet Underground "New Age". When Spencer asked Gordon to sing a couple of songs, he treated everyone with a laid back countrified version of "Blister In The Sun". Other Violent Femmes songs performed were "Good Feeling" and a totally rock out version of "Dance, Motherfucker, Dance!" with both Spencer and Gordon sharing vocal duties and JR Reyne helping out on guitar. They finished the set with a cover of The Cleans, "Anything Could Happen", which Spencer's old band The Johnnys use to also cover. MAGIC! Only happening in Melbourne Rock Central! A BIG FAT THANK YOU TO GORDON GANO, SPENCER P JONES AND EVERYONE AT THE BEST ROCK'N'ROLL BAR IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE, THE CHERRY BAR! ㋡ Source 0118
