Wolfmanhattan Project

A trio, the band consists of Mick Collins (Gories, Dirtbombs), Kid Congo Powers (Gun Club, Cramps, Bad Seeds), and Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Lydia Lunch Retrovirus.) In 2016 they put out a 7” of “Smells Like You,” a catchy, sing-along raveup that probably would not surprise fans of the members previous bands. Blue Gene Stew, though, is an altogether different animal — one that starts out on familiar ground, yet soon veers and meanders into unknown terrain.
