Second and last album released during their lifetime (but really their 3rd, it's complicated, don't ask) a wild mix of solid rock (the title track), 50s r'n'r pastiche and feel good open air festival jams not as solid as 'Ball Power' but still worthy
"1974â€™s Heavy Metal Kid is a true proto-punk slab of dynamite, right up there with similar recordings by the likes of the MC5 and the Pink Fairies. Featuring a mix of growling punkers (the title track, 'Private Eye'), '50s rockers (a cover of '(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care,' 'Need Your Love'), hi-energy boogie ('Do It', 'Dance To The Music'), cosmic rock ('Back To You,' 'Metal Feathers') and even a ballad in there, it's an eclectic mix held together by its outlaw sense of purpose. Along with , Ball Power, Heavy Metal Kid is THEE sound of the great Sharpie stomp of 1970s Melbourne. This edition on Desperate is fully licensed from LOBBY LLOYDEâ€™s estate, expertly remastered by Aztec Records' GIL MATTHEWS from the original tapes (it sounds amazing) and comes housed in an exact replica of the original gatefold sleeve with a heavy-duty tip-on cover, as well as an insert with lyrics and decorative obi strip. It's pressed on high-quality 180-gram vinyl. In other words: this limited edition is the one to get." - DESPERATE RECORDS
