70s invasion - early New Wave - GIZMOS, THE KIDS, COME ON

the GIZMOS were a group of rock journalists and music fans who played together in the mid 70s and played a blend of pre-punk - early new wave along the lines of the STOOGES/DICTATORS, etc. here is a link, seems there they had a lot of unreleased output now available

THE KIDS were a band from Belgium who began in '76 playing early new wave/punk and lasted for 10 yrs, not to be confused with the HEAVY METAL KIDS who became the KIDS eventually, they were a completely different band from the u.k., they used to open for IGGY POP, PATTI SMITH and the RUNAWAYS too, see this link -

....over the yrs a lot of bands have used this name such as THE KIDS who were also known as the HEAVY METAL KIDS, there was also an N.y. early 80's punk band spelled KIDZ that featured a girl singer, some of their songs were ; 'Feel No Pain, Blurp Skreet V-Nitz', another single was 'Pyrotechnique/Forget It....... These singles came out on a private label out of Schenectady, N.y.

If you bring forth what is within you, what is within you will save you, If you do not bring forth what is within you, what is within you will destroy you.

~ Jesus

( Acts of John, Gnostic Scriptures )

'What you are is God's gift to you, what you make of yourself is your gift to God'.

'It has been said that wisdom is a map on which to follow the journey of the spirit, a sacred text of understanding from which to learn about the care of the soul.'

~ excerts from p. 57 and p 67 of the book - 'The Serenity Runes' by RALPH BLUM....
