Anyone else find it really annoying when an artist is told to “stick to their genre” and “stay out of politics” for voicing the slightest bit of social concern? One band sticking the middle finger up to that mentality is Hastings’ own Kid Kapichi, who has apparently made it their business to get all up in yours. Their discovery and rise to popularity at the hands of Frank Carter of Rattlesnakes fame speaks volumes – and their various outspoken and politically rebellious efforts (including an impromptu visit to the country’s number one party venue, 10 Downing Street) cements their reputation as a no-nonsense, hard-hitting rock band ready to take on the establishment.

Sophomore record Here’s What You Could Have Won is their first on a ‘proper’ label, but there’s no sign of selling out for this riled-up bunch. They’ve laid their groundwork both career-wise and IRL-wise, so when you hear them complain about their lot in life, you know it comes from experience. If you’re also fed up with our social disorder and want to get some energy out in between protests, their show at NUSU on Friday 10th February will be just the ticket; Kid Kapichi’s bass-driven grooves and red-hot lyrics fuelled by our nation’s politically inept ruling class may well be in order.

Kid Kapichi play Newcastle University Students’ Union on Friday 10th February.
