The Kids first appearance on Belgian TV- 1978

“But at night, it’s party time, and we pogo to musical chaos and anarchy”

I absolutely love The Kids from Belgium. Here they are in all of their bereted and crashingly Euro glory. I’m endlessly fascinated by the early punk scene- before there was a template and orthodoxy- especially the otherworldliness of early European punk. The power of music is undisputable when I can get lyrics written in Belgium 30 years ago in my head for days at a time. According to the YouTube comments, the kids in this band were 12, 16, and 19.

The inteviews are absolutely priceless.
