I could chew your ear off all day about Kid Kapichi. That could cover everything from the time I saw them play Oporto to their latest single, ‘Working Man’s Town’, which they released last Friday. So, allow me to take you on a whistle-stop tour — albeit in lexical format — of how these alt rock legends came to fame.
A brief blurb
Hailing from Hastings, four Buckfast-drinking (by their own admission), mighty riff-playing, hell-raising fellows make up Kid Kapichi. If you’re a fan of riotously insightful, painfully accurate lyrics that’ll have you nodding along, this band is for you. They promise full-on punk anthems that are so far from tame, you’ll be questioning whether you’re one of the so-called ‘Thugs’ explored on that particular record. They have plenty more gems up their sleeves as well, and their officially-released tunes date all the way back to 2016.
These alt rockers speak politically-motivated truths, stand for right and wrong, and are purveyors of good times. It’s pure and simple. Their cultivated sound gives them the sort of well-polished sheen that makes them seem experienced tourers well beyond their years. They were nothing short of action-packed brilliance when they commanded every moshing body in Leeds’ Oporto just a few months ago. I can’t rave about these gents enough — I mean no exaggeration when I say they’ll probably become your new favourite band.
Here’s an amuse-bouche to get you acquainted:
► ‘Household Shame’
► ‘Death Dips’
