Kid Kapichi

It’s all about the music for Kid Kapichi. After all, the bands that make it are the ones that never give up. The quartet from the British coastal town of Hastings survived on casual jobs in construction and hospitality for nearly ten years. But their goal drew ever closer, and they got their first real break from fellow Hastings man Frank Carter, who took them on a European tour. They recorded their self-financed debut ‘This Time Next Year’ (2021) with guitarist Dom Craik of Nothing But Thieves, Dave Grohl’s favourite band and a familiar name at Rock Werchter. Kid Kapichi tackles all of the demons that haunt British society: poverty, narrow-mindedness, racism and so on, all while sounding like a cross between IDLES and Queens Of The Stone Age. Avid fan Liam Gallagher is full of praise for ‘New England’, the opener of their latest album, ‘Here’s What You Could Have Won’ (2022): “Like Noel, when he was good”.
