The Up! Up! Ups!
We're just four kids with a love of the finer things in life- power pop, rock and roll, and animals dressed like people. We mostly stick to the first two.
The Capitalist Kids
A lot has been said about the Capitalist Kids, and there’s a lot more to be said about them. Their popularity has grown enormously in the five years since admirers starting shouting “OLE” for “The Lonely Bull”.
It began with the teenagers, we thought. But at the Kids’ debut as Concert artists in San Francisco, we noticed, to our delight, that it’s easier to skin an ameoba than to catalogue the “typical Capitalist Kids fan”. The teens were there, but so were the “hippies” and the “squares”, and the “little old ladies” and the screen starlets, the celebrities and those who make them celebrities. In fact, one admirer, who looked as though he stepped from a page in Esquire said, “You would think that a lot of these people would be home watching the man who serves the bubbles”.
We noticed another joyous thing. The Capitalist Kids were something special. Their good looks and sensitivity brought an immediate response from the industry. The word is that the Capitalist Kids could make stardom in films. The agents, bookers, managers, and publicists picked on the Kids and the phones started ringing. Life and the Capitalist Kids are in perfect harmony.
There is a triumphant atmosphere surrounding the Kids today. The pleasure that comes from performing for enthusiasts belongs to them. Our joys are compounded by your acceptance. And so, on behalf of the Capitalist Kids, we humbly thank you for listening.
