For the design of this t-shirt we have respected the original typography and we have opted for the cover of their first album made by Norton records, originally the album released by Red Star, Marty Thau’s label, was white with the band’s picture in black and white, but for the purpose of making a black t-shirt it was clearly better the reissue, even so we have added the Red Star recods logo to the t-shirt.
Limited edition 25 handnumbered copies only!

The Real Kids were a Boston band formed by John Felice when he left his friend Jonathan Richman's Modern Lovers. Like Jonathan Richman and his Modern Lovers, the Real Kids had a special fondness for the rock and roll of the fifties and sixties and, of course, for The Velvet Underground, who, like the Modern Lovers, would cover Foggy Notion. In spite of everything, the Real Kids' sound would be closer to The Ramones than to The Modern Lovers, in fact John Felice worked as a roadie for The Ramones for a while.
It could also be said that The Real Kids were one of the groups that anticipated punk, because although their first album was released in 1977, the group had been going since 1972.
