HEAVY METAL KID

DESPERATE RECORDS


Format: LP
Cata No: DEFCON3
Barcode:
Now here is a special event for all lovers of classic Australian rock & roll, a deluxe vinyl reissue of the Coloured Balls' awesome 1974 LP, “Heavy Metal Kid” . Released hot on the heels of
1973's killer album “Coloured Balls” (yes, soon also to be reissued by Desperate on LP), Heavy Metal Kid is one of Coloured Balls' Lobby Loyde's finest recordings, and has been out
of print in this format since its release (40 years!), with originals going for hundreds of dollars.
is a true proto-punk slab of dynamite, right up
there with similar recordings by the likes of the MC5 and the
Pink Fairies. Featuring a mix of growling punkers (the title track,
'Private Eye'), '50s rockers (a cover of '(You're So Square) Baby I
Don't Care', 'Need Your Love'), hi-energy boogie ('Do It', 'Dance To
The Music'), cosmic rock ('Back To You', 'Metal Feathers')
and even a ballad in there, it's an eclectic mix held together by its
outlaw sense of purpose. Along with ,
is sound of the great Sharpie stomp of 1970s Melbourne.
This edition on Desperate is fully licensed from Loyde's estate,
expertly remastered by Aztec Records' Gil Matthews from the
original tapes (it sounds amazing) and comes housed in an
exact replica of the original gatefold sleeve with a heavy-duty
tip-on cover,as well as an insert with lyrics and decorative obi strip.
It's pressed on high-quality 180-gram vinyl from Rainbo in the US.
In other words: this limited edition is the one to get.
