The Kidds

Big Beat 1017 – Straighten Up & Fly Right /See What My Love Means

This is another record from the Tommy Bee connection in Albuquerque.  The Kidds were a garage band from Beaumont TX that played the College Frat circuit in the Southwest.  They were known to wear shorts & vests onstage with big bow ties & also implemented strobe lighting.  Straighten Up is a cool garage rocker track while the flip is a ballad.    The Kidds came out of Kelly High School in Beaumont.  Their guitarist was Joey Patrizi & the bassist was John Schmidt (later replaced by Glen Moyer).
