The Original '80s Tropical Gangster August Darnell aka Kid Creole hits town with his Coconuts in tow (sounds painful) on the 22nd of April as part of the La Linea latin festival, and you lucky lot, can win tickets right here...

Responsible for a batch of enchanting hits that include the likes of 'Stool Pigeon' "ha-ja-ja-jarr!", 'Im a Wonderful Thing Baby' and the immaculate 'Annie I'm Not Your Daddy'. Creole was almost single handedly responsible for the resurgence of latin disco in the early 1980s. With his inimitable, relentless and self-proclaimed cool - his live shows, at this time, were among the most propulsive and enchanting of the period, with outlandish dancing together with theatrical garnished Latin beats."

SO, you can bet your bottom dollar you'll be dancing the night away and some, at the Barbican on April 22nd as KC & The Coconuts (no not the Sunshine Band) do their thang... If you would like to win a pair of tickets to this unique night in the presence of latin super hero Kid Creole and his delectable Coconuts - just answer this simple Kid Creole related question...

The line-up of Kid's backing Coconuts has changed over the years (I think one was his wife at one point - anyway...), but the number of them hasn't changed.... How many Coconuts are there?
