CRYPT


Gatefold LP plus 32-page 12" x 12" (30.5cm x 30.5cm) booklet inside crammed with tonsa liner notes (28,000+ words not counting the text of the press clippings) built mostly upon Dave Laing of Dog Meat Records mucho-extensive March 1995 inteview whilst key band members Billy Borgioli and Alpo were alive, NEVER SEEN photos, flyers, press-clippings, info, etc on John Felices days with The Modern Lovers, his combos The Childrens Rock & Roll Band, The Kids, and the Real Kids!!There was a young Boston lad named John Felice who took it upon himself to say "F.U." to the current dull-ass folkie/prog/Top 40 crap and blast forth with HIS?OWN fucking vision and, most important, POP?SONGWRITING?MASTERY of Groovies/ Stones/ Kinks/ Stooges/ VU/ Dolls-influenced rip-roar.In 1970 at age 15 John Felice formed the Modern Lovers with next door neighbor Jonathan Richman. At age 16 John Felice formed his own side band, which Jonathan Richman named The Childrens R&R?Band because Felice was in 10th grade and drummer Paul Murphy was in 9th grade and lead singer Ricky Carmel was in 6th grade.

Just upon the verge of exploding into the Big Time, the Real Kids imploded along with Red Star. The booklet goes full-depth into all these years and circumstances.The MUSIC? Ripping, absolutely ripping ROCK and ROLL music.
