Hi Fifi, thanks for pointing that out. Both bands were indeed established by the time King Congo joined. I made sure to make the correction above. Thanks again!
I ADORE Kid Congo Powers, but he was NOT a founding member of The Cramps, neither of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds! Both bands were well established when he joined.
