By 1980, punk as we knew it was having a bit of a personality crisis. The Pistols we dead and buried, The Clash had lost the plot and...Oh No!...here come the Mohawks. After nearly 3 years (and nearly as many chords) The Young Identities decided to try something different if not entirely distant. They still get a buzz from fast and sinister music so they change their name to KICKS and release a very limited edition cassette singe titled “Leather/Godzilla.” Sounding fresh, brash and furious but with more depth than previously heard, the boys continued to expand on the new noise with the 1981 vinyl double A side follow up “Return of the Action Man/The Secret.*#8221; The single sold well locally and was an acknowledged influence on new and upcoming bands like Mystery of Sixes and Public Execution.
