IMPULSE INT’L, THE: The Real Kid: 7”

This one is a bit more reserved than their “Arm the Girls” or “Saturday Suzie” singles, but as good. The title track is a rocker that continually builds in tempo from mid pace to something a bit quicker and uplifting. The flip is “The World Hates Me” which has a slight U.K. post punk feel while retaining the power pop these guys crank. I love the guitar sound on this song. Overall, this single reminds me of stuff, like early Nick Lowe and the Plimsouls. Great stuff again.
