Hedonistic Hastings quartet Kid Kapichi are setting the scene alight with their riff-filled, riotous rock music that promises to kick you even when you are down.


Mosh-pits and melodies galore, the band's live shows are equally as electrifying as their music; having played a run of shows around the country including in one of the culture centres of the capital - Camden - the likely lads sure are making their mark in music.


We spoke to the boys about their constantly misheard band name, a naked man who frequents their gigs, as well as about them joy riding in a police car in their video for 'Waster'.


The band have released their latest EP Lucozade Dreams, and it's everything that we hoped it would be. Catch them this lighting up venues and dropping hits across 2018.

FOR THOSE THAT HAVEN'T HEARD OF YOU BEFORE, DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND IN THREE WORDS.

JACK: A haunted house.


KID KAPICHI - WHERE DOES YOUR NAME COME FROM?

BEN: When we were in one of our first ever studio sessions before we had a name, there was a fucked up vocal loop on repeat that sounded like 'kidkapiich-kidkapiich-kidkapiich' and in the midst of coming up blank for names for ages, one of us just said 'how about Kid Kapichi?' and it just stuck
JACK: Plus we thought we'd be the only thing that came up when you searched it, the only problem is nobody can spell it - we didn't really think that through.
BEN: Yeah no one can ever hear it in a crowded pub when they ask your name. We've had Kinky Peaches a lot - sick band name - and a personal favourite, Ginger Piggy.


YOU'VE SUPPORTED THE LIKES OF SLAVES AND SKUNK ANANSIE - CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT THAT?

JACK: We got asked to play Fat Tuesday, an amazing Great Escape-esque festival in our hometown of Hastings, and Skunk Anansie were the headliners. They happened to see us play and Cass Lewis the bass player ended up ringing me one evening and asked if we wanted to come and support them at Rock City, Nottingham. It was a mental experience, had to play it so cool on the phone haha
BEN: Yeah and with the Slaves thing, it was literally just after they'd singed with Virgin and they were playing at this amazing little rock venue in Hastings called The Tubman (RIP). We got asked to support which was wicked as we're big fans, it was sick to be a part of probably one of their last shows in a venue of that size. It was intense.
