Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds have released a tribute to Teotihuacán’s Great Spider Goddess — guardian of the underworld and purveyor of morning glories in all of their hallucinogenic glory. The album envisions her as patroness and protector of the modern underground music scene. A second-generation Mexican-American, guitar virtuoso Kid Congo knows how to get the primal party started, having cofounded The Gun Club with Jeffrey Lee Pierce before legendary stints with The Cramps and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. This album tastefully blends ’60s Chicano rock, garage punk, and surf rock. “La Araña” grooves hard, while Glamazons dominate “Psychic Future,” and the low-riding “Chicano Studies” brings the pachuco power. ¡Firme!
