Rich Kids - 1978 UK tv footage

The Rich Kids were formed after Glen Matlock (vocals / bass) parted ways with the Sex Pistols. Frontman Midge Ure (pre-Ultravox) handled lead vocals and guitar, Rusty Egan played drums and Steve New provided additional guitar and vocals. They put out one album, Ghosts Of Princes In Towers (produced by Mick Ronson), and three singles during their brief time together as a band from 1977 to 1978. Their sound owed much to the influence of driving power pop like The Who and to the rapidly burning punk movement.
