Coloured Balls - Heavy Metal Kid
Also from Coloured Balls:  Ball Power
One one of the most misunderstood bands of the early 1970s. Fortunately, they left behind another great album in Heavy Metal Kid. Like Ball Power, this album retains a power and strength of purpose to this day, displaying an adventurous spirit and further reaffirmation of the band's status as a pioneering progressive / hard rock outfit.

The band managed one more single Bama Lama Baby / Be Your Lover before disbanding. This single was thought to be their last recording, until a master tape of an unreleased single “Flying / Around and Around” was discovered. Recorded live in the studio in 1975 with engineer / producer Gil Matthews, these 2 tracks represent the final studio offering from one of Australia's greatest bands.
