Product Description

COLOURED BALLS
(LP)
[ERA : 70s / Hard Rock ]

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 (only 500 copies available). Released hot on the heels of 1973's killer Ball Power album, Heavy Metal Kid is one of guitarist Lobby Loyde's finest recordings. It has been out of print in this format since its release, 40 years ago, with original copies going for hundreds of dollars. Heavy Metal Kid 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, '50s rockers, hi-energy boogie, cosmic rock and even a ballad in there, it's an eclectic mix held together by its outlaw sense of purpose. Along with Ball Power, Heavy Metal Kid, is THE 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 and it sounds amazing. The LP 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 in the USA.
