Info for There Goes The Neighbourhood

"'There Goes The Neighborhood' is Kid Kapichi's third studio album and was produced by Dom Craik, known for the British chart-toppers Nothing But Thieves. The album contains 11 distinctive tracks that are about spent youth and nights in small towns. These songs are equally suitable for protests and parties.

Much like film director Guy Ritchie, a globally recognized figure who remains true to his British roots, the four members from Hastings are determined to hold on to their native values and beliefs and bring their songs of working-class pride to the widest possible audience.

Kid Kapichi

Kid Kapichi
It’s Kapee-chee. It’s Ben Beetham (guitars, vocals), Eddie Lewis (bass), George Macdonald (drums) and Jack Wilson (vocals, guitars). Four twentysomethings with big personalities from Hastings who’ve been making music together for over half their lives, in various configurations. Working in pubs, construction, motorcycle trade, anything. Driving nightshifts just to keep playing. Eight years of non-stop graft. “The bands that make it are the ones that don’t give up,” says Eddie. “We’ve sacrificed everything. Normal jobs, settling down, we put our lives completely on hold for our dreams.”

And the four have dreamed up something special as Kid Kapichi. A behemoth of a band on and off stage thanks to the Hastings scene that nurtured them, until they got their big break from Frank Carter - he invited them to play his birthday party then join him on a major tour. Their best songs explore racism, in-work poverty, mental health, violence, frustration and all-consuming love with honesty and humour. All their songs come studded with barbed wire hooks, bristling with the juddering shock of lived experience, the cathartic thrill of a balled-up fist relaxing into an air punch.

After putting out debut album This Time Next Year independently in 2021, the band recently signed their first proper deal for follow-up Here’s What You Could Have Won. Deserved reward for all that graft. These 11 new songs are an excellent showcase for the band’s bigger, punchier, ‘beat punk’ sound, produced with Dom Craik from Nothing But Thieves.

Comeback single New England in January 2022 is their most explicitly political song yet, with a searing guest verse from Bob Vylan. It’s a brutal dissection of the xenophobic Little England mentality. They followed it with Partygate polemic Party At No. 10, praised by Liam Gallagher on Twitter, which they tried to debut with a busking performance outside the nation’s most infamous rave venue - before being dissuaded by Downing Street’s armed police. That won’t stop Kid Kapichi for long, though, as they’re touring the new album around the UK and Europe well into next year. Get involved.

This album contains no booklet.
