Start the week­end with a good Kick

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

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’.
