The rock heavyweights from Hastings stamped their name firmly onto the hide of the UK rock scene in 2018, after riding the wave of the release of their single ‘Puppet Strings’ and EP ‘Lucozade Dreams’. Peddling a unique mixture of explosive riffs, bone-crushing live shows, and ear worming melodies of the duel-lead vocals and guitar.
Renowned for their live ferocious live shows, on stage is where Kid Kapichi really come alive. Fronted by Jack Wilson & Ben Beetham (joint lead guitar/vocals), with the other half of their ear-shattering sound emanating from George Macdonald (drums) & Eddie Lewis (bass). Having shared the stage with the likes of Slaves, Fat White Family, Fizzy Blood and Pretty Vicious; Kid Kapichi’s name is hot on the lips of the UK live music circuit.
In November 2018, Kapichi dropped their single ‘Revolver’ and celebrated with a huge hometown show. Storming into the new year with the aptly named titled track, ‘2019’ is a reflection of the current state of social and political affairs, and its impact on a voiceless generation.
Bassist Eddie says, “We all love music from every genre - literally from bossa nova to grime, funk to drum & bass, but we just don’t think there’s ever been a substitute for huge riffs and all out rock and roll.” George adds “We just don’t understand why there’s not more rock out there now, especially when the world is such a fucked up place at the moment. From our own scene in Hastings, and the gigs we’ve played around the country, we know that there’s such a huge passion for rock music, and we want to put it right back at the forefront of British music.”
