Heavy Metal Kids. | Fade 2 Grey

Heavy Metal Kids.


Heavy Metal Kids, Chelsea Kids, 1977.
This song was off their third album, Kitsch, 1976. A great album which had their only hit single She´s No Angel.
The two other albums by the original band were Anvil Chorus, 1975 and Heavy Metal Kids, 1974.
The lead singer Gary Holton, died of a drugs overdose just as he was working on the second tv series Auf Wediersehn Pet.This was in Spain in 1985. Gary had previously been in Quadrophenia and Breaking Glass.
(I remember some of this being filmed in a pub called The Hop Pole which was in Beeston, one of the first pubs i ever visited by myself at school lunchtime!!)
The band reformed with a new vocalist and made an album Hit The Right Button in
2003.
