The Rich Kids

formed by Glen Matlock when he got kicked out of the Sex Pistols for liking the Beatles, The Rich Kids were one of the first punk bands to really embrace pop. Matlock took his love of The Faces and 60s British Invasion and infused it with some 70s Glam and punk rock and came up with The Rich Kids sound. they only released 1 album Ghosts Of Princes In Towers which was produced by Mick Ronson, but the album is a fucking Power Pop classic. their first single "Rick Kids" was a top 40 hit in the UK but the band failed to achieve the same success as The Clash, Buzzcocks, and Sex Pistols and broke up shortly after. if you ever run across a copy of their record i highly recommend picking it up.

here are the albums most famous cuts:

"ghosts of princes in towers"

"rich kids"
