THE CARDIAC KIDZ - Get Out! 2009

The Cardiac Kidz were an American punk band from San Diego, California active from the late 1970s through the early 1980s. In 1979 the Cardiac Kidz released two 7" vinyl records; a 45 rpm disc, "Get Out / Find Yourself A Way" and an EP called, "Playground." They were the first punk band to make a TV appearance in San Diego June 1979 appearing on San Diego's KFMB-TV show "Sun Up San Diego" (Host Jerry D. Bishop) and were played on San Diego mainstream radio stations of the time such as KGB-FM, KPRI, etc... Articles on the Cardiac Kidz appeared in the San Diego Union Tribune, Kicks Magazine, and the San Diego Reader. The Cardiac Kidz are still featured across the US and in the UK through independent radio shows and podcasts such as "Strange Reaction”. They performed with many San Diego and Los Angeles punk and new wave bands of that era, such as The Penetrators, The Dinettes,  The Monroes, The Rick Elias Band, The Americans, and many others. In 2009, the Italian independent record label, Rave-Up Records, released a limited edition vinyl compilation, collecting the single and EP plus rarities. Get Out! was the only full album released by the Southern Californian punk rock band over thirty years after their last recorded release an 7" vinyl EP featuring four songs recorded live. In this album, The Cardiac Kidz showcased their ability to cross music genres by producing music that treads over both punk rock, and new wave. It was released on October 15, 2009. This was also their first album on Rave-Up Records, after their previous label Lub-Dub Records was folded in 1978. The vinyl LP had a limited pressing of 1000 units. They also featured on Killed By Death #007 and Killed By Death #12. Cardiac Kidz are back again!!!!!
