R.K.L. - "Greatest Hits- Live West Berlin 1988"
CD / Destiny-132
(Distr.: Broken Silence / PHD / Sonic Rendezvous)
File under: CLASSIC HARDCORE / 80ties SKATE-PUNK FOUNDATION
The RICH KIDS ON LSD will always be remembered as one of the best and most influential HC/Skatepunk groups of the mid/late 80ties, with an unique virtuosity, speed, drive and musicianship - you won´t find any important SkateCore-band nowadays, who won´t quote RKL as one of their main inspirations!! Like many other great and unique groups RKL later imploded in between personal tragedies, drugs and drama, but their songs will remain forever!
This album features the group at their absolute musical peak: Live in Europe 1988, short after releasing "RnR-Nightmare", with their classic line-up: Jason Sears - Vox / Chris Rest & Barry D`Alive - Guitars / Joe Raposo - Bass & multi-instrumental genius Bomer on Drums.
"Without RKL, there wouldn´t be a NOFX. Well, there might be a totally shitty NOFX."
FAT MIKE / NOFX
"Not only on stage, but also before and after the gig, RKL managed to keep the crowd and all people involved MOVING,
a band turned into a powerhouse." ARCHI ALERT / INFERNO, TERRORGRUPPE....
"I think it´s no secret anymore that the guys of RKL produced their own LSD and took on tour to Europe. They used the large-sized stickers on their guitar and drum-bags to hide strips... and they did spread tons of LSD papers at their shows. Crazy shit!" HELGE / PLASTIC BOMB FANZINE
