Start the weekend with a good Kick
Hayes FM’s Hughie Dixon with highlights from the live band scene
ONE of the finest bands from Uxbridge Town are about to hit Camden Town for the launch of their latest EP. Four-piece indie powerhouse Kick certainly have a kick like a mule on steroids and, man, are they exciting and tight. Firmly on the inventive side of catchy indieness yet remaining inimitable, original, even imaginative, Kick truly are one of a kind.
Praised by XFM, Tom Smith from The Editors, and John Leckie, producer to Pink Floyd, Radiohead and The Stone Roses, who profoundly announced Kick to be ‘fresh and bold’.
They’re due to play the prestigious Camden Barfly on Friday, and your attendance in support of this brilliant outfit will be more than welcome – or to quote a slogan from a well-known high street supermarket whose name escapes me, ‘ Every little helps’.
Chalk Farm is the nearest Tube, or if you fancy a 15-minute stroll, get off at Camden Town. It’s £5 entry on the door or in advance from www.ticketweb. co.uk.
Kick are on stage at 9pm, but if you’re there for 8pm, you’ll get your money’s worth by experiencing blistering sets from New York Tourists and Delca Kara.
If you’re a fan of great music, start the weekend with a Kick. Brush up on their songs at www.soundcloud.com/ kick-band or you can buy the new Kick single, Sea And Sky, from iTunes now.
Kick are Jordan Heggie (bass and vocals), Phillip McHugh (guitar and vocals), Lucas George (guitar and vocals) and Rob Mead (drums).
A fiver for three great bands? To quote a well-known high street burger chain, whose name escapes me, ‘ I’m lovin’ it’.
