Description

Kids November 1974 Demos / Real Kids 1977 Demos / Live At The Rat on CD

2018 collection. Eight previously unissued proto-punk god-headed rippers from the pre-Real Kids combo The Kids recorded on Nov 10 1974 - plus four previously unissued Real Kids demos from Spring 1977, recorded by DJ Oedipus at WTBS radio station with 1 mic suspended above the band! CD includes ten bonus blasts recorded at the Rat, January 22, 1978. There was a young Boston lad named John Felice who took it upon himself to say "F.U." to the current dull-ass folkie/prog/Top 40 crap and blast forth with his own f***ing vision/rip-roar and, most important, Pop Songwriting Mastery of Groovies/Kinks/Stones/Stooges/VU/Dolls-influenced rip-roar. In 1970 at age 15 John Felice formed the Modern Lovers with next door neighbor Jonathan Richman. Felice departed the Modern Lovers in January 1973 to concentrate on The Children's R&R Band, who soon became The Kids, then later, in early 1976, The Real Kids, who would become labelmates at Red Star Records with Suicide. Just upon the verge of exploding into the Big Time, The Real Kids imploded along with Red Star. The booklet goes full-depth into all these years and circumstances.
