KICKS: Return of the Action Man b/w The Secret
Or...the on-going struggle of the Brisbane Punk Rock rabble from the
suburbs, The Young Identities, to rule the world. One 45 at a time.

By 1980, punk as we knew it was having a bit of a personality crisis. The
Pistols we dead and buried, The Clash had lost the plot and...Oh No!...here
come the Mohawks. After nearly 3 years (and nearly as many chords) The Young
Identities decided to try something different if not entirely distant. They
still get a buzz from fast and sinister music so they change their name to
KICKS and release a very limited edition cassette singe titled
'Leather/Godzilla'. Sounding fresh,brash and furious but with more depth
than previously heard, the boys continued to expand on the new noise with
the 1981 vinyl double A side follow up 'Return of the Action Man/The Secret'
The single sold well locally and was an acknowledged influence on new and
upcoming bands like Mystery of Sixes and Public Execution.

--To me, this always had a big BAUHAUS undercurrent to it. Particularly in the vocals. This single is so underrated. -Jensen

**every once in a while the shipping amounts will seem insane (usually for multiple record int’l orders or US orders with shirts and records together) but rest assured we check each and every order and will refund any differences.
