The Heavy Metal Kids were formed in 1973 by the merger of two previous bands: Heaven and Biggles. They took their name from a gang of street kids featured in a novel by legendary beat generation writer William Burroughs.

The initial, pre-recording line-up consisted of Mickey Waller (Guitar), Ronnie Thomas (Bass and Vocals), Gary Holton (Lead Vocals), Keith Boyce (Drums) and Cosmo (Guitar). They were the first signing by Atlantic Records' new London offices, having been spotted by A & R man and sixties legend, Dave Dee.

In January 1974 they recorded their first, self-titled album, produced by Dave Dee and engineered by Phil Chapman. Mickey Waller left the band shortly before they went in to Island Studios to record the follow-up album for Atlantic, Anvil Chorus, in January 1975, produced by Andy Johns.
