[EURO-PUNK] In the late ’70s, it seemed like every country in Europe had its answer to the Sex Pistols. In Belgium, that band was the Kids. Playing fairly standard-issue, politically agitated three-chord thrash, the group nevertheless started early enough in the international punk movement to achieve legendary status in its home country. Although certainly kids when they began—bassist Danny De Haes was only 12 years old—that's no longer the case. But considering it took the band nearly 30 years (and a premature breakup in the ’80s) to make it to America, performing stateside for the first time in 2004, hearing the songs it wrote as angry teenagers performed live by angry middle-agers remains a treat rare enough to recommend.
