      Saw this on John Schooley's wall on Fartbook:

      THERE IS GONNA BE A NEW REAL KIDS ALBUM, EVERYBODY! David Woods was kind enough to send me this 4-song EP of cuts from the new record on absolutely bee-YOO-tiful YELLOW GOLD vinyl. With a sweet Ace of Hearts logo, like it was 1978 or something. Listening right now - pretty great. Side one has a rocker with "She Don't Take It" but I really dug "Fly Into the Mystery" - amazing version of a Modern Lovers song. Boston rock n' roll, people.

      Awesome.

      Wow I love The Real Kids! Great news. I really hope it's great. I saw them at Coney Island High in NYC when they started playing shows again, must have been late 90s/early oughts, and they were fantastic. Was supposed to see them again with The Lazy Cowgirls around the corner at The Continental not long after that but they cancelled the day of the show and then they just dropped off the map, if my memory serves me correctly (which it very well may not). Glad to hear John Felice is still at it. Big influence for me.

      I'M TOLD IT'S ALREADY COMPLETED.......Now , it's just wait , wait , and wait some more.

      I saw them twice , late 90's - early oughts , maybe. The original band cancelled a booking here in Chicago , but John and Howie played with a different lineup . I think Billy Cole played both shows.

      I was bummed that it was'nt the classic lineup , but, they DESTROYED. They came back , later , using a local , pick -up drummer who'd practiced WITH THEM once , AND THEY STILL KILLED IT !!!

      VERY COOL GUYS , STILL COMMITTED TO HIGH - ENERGY ROCK'N'ROLL.

      Seriously considering going to boston for the record release. Not many earlier groups (that I never got to see) do I really care about witnessing live at this point, but Real Kids is defintely one of them. Ordered their first album from Sam the Record Man in Sydney Cape Breton when I was 16. It cost me 40$...that was my entire months allowance at the time. ah well. A life changing band though nonetheless

      I think it was budget rock 2007 that they played.  My memory's kinda hazy on the year, but it was definitely worth it.
