RICH KIDS were a short-lived new wave band from London, founded in 1977 by Glen Matlock following his departure from Sex Pistols. The band also included future Ultravox member Midge Ure, and Rusty Egan, who later went to found Visage. The group disbanded in 1979 after one album and 3 EP's and several of their live performances were featured in the 1980 film D.O.A.. In 2003 the major label EMI (Universal Music) decided to make this big compilation with all Rich Kids studio tracks under the simple title "the best of". The cover you can see her above is from the first single appeared on 1 January 1978 and the official cover of this compilation is just here below. On 7 January 2010, the band played a one-off reunion concert at The O2 Academy Islington, London in aid of Steve New.
