The Incredible Kidda Band
What they say about The Kidda Band - ""The missing link between Glam and Punk"" ""One day some musicologist will light up Alan Hammonds' songbook and it'll be like the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls..........." ".....because nestling in those pages are some of the best pop songs to have been written" "This CD contains some of the greatest forgotten songs of the punk and power-pop era." "All of their singles have become collectors items, and rightfully so" "The songs rank as some of the catchiest power-pop gems ever produced." "Songs like ”Everybody Knows” and the brilliant ”If looks could kill” walk all over everything The Undertones ever recorded." "It's hard to believe that this group has remained in obscurity for so many years" "Two minute stabs of adolescent genius." "The fame never came, but this CD rightly puts the Kidda Band's melodic punk tunes back on the map" "This CD is worth its weight in gold!" "Each Alan Hammonds song has so much snap, crackle and pop, you'll be stuffed by the time Disc Two ends" "Believe me, only a handful of these 29 songs aren't worthy of single releases." "They are Incredible and they are unique and if there was ever an album to buy - this is it!" "I can't figure out why these guys were ignored as they were a cut above most at the time." "They play with punch and panache , putting more media-mirrored bands such as The Jags and the appalling Knack well and truly in the shade". "These songs are perfect and 100% British! So catchy, so warm, so wonderfull – all at the highest level" "Incredible is an under statement. Few words can describe the power pop GOLD this band produced." "A seemingly never ending supply of catchy hooks and simple yet perfectly constructed guitar riffs that will have you singing and clapping along before the end of the first chorus".
