“Here we go – first thing’s first,” spits Kid Kapichi frontman Jack Wilson on ‘Artillery’, the opener to the Hasting punks’ essential third album, ‘There Goes The Neighbourhood’. It’s a rousing call to arms – one that gets straight down to business, and a summation of the LP’s battle cry against a grey Britain where “The problems are the people’s when the problems get worse”. Kid Kapichi are a band for the people, and their new Suggs-featuring record is here to help you party and protest in equal measure.

Having gained an ardent cult following with their 2021 debut ‘This Time Next Year’ and the rollicking 2022 follow-up ‘Here’s What You Could Have Won’, Kid Kapichi arrive with their third album in as many years – a testament from one of the UK’s hardest working bands, and one who preach a message of urgency.

The Kid Kapichi movement is about to get a whole lot bigger. See you down the front. Let’s get to work!
