Bursting on to the UK Power-Pop scene back in 1977 came The Incredible Kidda Band. Fuelled with a love of the sound that was coming from America at the time - catchy Pop songs but played with POWER!! Sporting some dodgy old mullets and wearing some truly hideous skinny ties and fetching shirts these guys were the REAL DEAL!!!
We first came upon The Incredible Kidda Band when we heard of an extremely rare Power-Pop 7" that all the collectors were looking for. We tracked down a copy and it was everything that we had hoped for! Imagine all them more ‘famous’ Power-Pop acts like The Jags, The Plimsouls, Big Star but with an edge of pure teenage angst!
After many months of searching we managed to locate the members of the band and got them to search out all of their master tapes and what we have here is an almost definitive collection of one of the most underrated UK bands EVER!!!
Yep, 29 tracks that covers the bands entire career - from early demos through the bands’ singles up to final recording sessions - when you slap this little beauty on you will be left dumbfounded at how this band went unnoticed for so very long.
Aiming to make amends for this we are honoured to be able to bring you this Double LP / Double CD!
The LP inner sleeves and CD booklet are absolutely crammed full of never-before-seen photos and shots of band memorabilia.
This release is a pure delight for music fans and collectors alike so get it now!!!
