...or, rather, more specifically, in London on June 29th when Boston's great roots/punk rockers The Real Kids...
...are playing at the Dirty Water club.
I love those guys, but I had no idea they were still kicking out the jams after all these years (their first studio album, which is a classic, was released in 1977).
And if you've never heard them, from that eponymous LP...
...here's their blistering cover of the venerable "Roberta."
Pretty kick ass, I think you'll warrant. But as a historical note, here's the version from where they probably learned it.
From the 1965 LP Animal Tracks. By -- who else? -- The Animals.
And because I love you all more than food, here's another great version of the song -- from the late Lonnie Mack's brilliant 1969 Glad I'm in the Band.
And finally, here's a live performance by "Roberta"'s co-composer, New Orleans legend Frankie Ford.
Okay, that was exhausting. But before I crash, here's a recent interview with Real Kid founder/frontman John Felice over at the Dirty Water WEBSITE.
You're welcome very much, you bastards. Now get off my lawn.
