John Felice is one of rock 'n' roll's unsung heroes. A founding member of the Modern Lovers at the age of 15, he quit the band before the sessions that resulted in their classic album, and was subsequently written out of the history of one of the most influential bands of the ‘70s. The band he left to form, the Kids, made some local waves but ultimately went nowhere, pretty much coming to an end when he went off to New York to audition for the Heartbreakers - a job he turned down. Back in Boston, he formed The Real Kids, and finally wrote his own chapter in rock history with the band's eponymous 1977 album for Marty Thau's Red Star label that goes down as one of the greatest ever – a perfect blend of Eddie Cochran, the early-Stones and the Velvet Underground, with killer tunes, energy and feel, and some of the most honest and affecting lyrics ever put to tape. Culled from the master tapes, No Place Fast collects the band's 1982 EP Outta Place and Taxi Boys' (Felice side group) eponymous 1981 mini-LP. Another essential chapter in the still-unfolding Real Kids compendium!
