Kid Champion, The Capulets, Jungle Doctors, Death Surf & Bryony Marie Fry
KID CHAMPION – (11-11.30)
In quick time, Kid Champion have proved their undoubted promise and popularity, with radio plays by the BBC’s Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens, as well as a live session performance for the BBC and support slots for artists such as Art Brut and The Libertines’ Gary Powell. What’s more, the band have already been championed by Banquet Records’ Jon Tolley, playing regular shows at his New Slang club night, and the video for “Forgotten What It Feels Like” is a viral hit only a few days after release.
Max (vocals, guitar), Davey (bass) and Silas (drums, vocals) had known each other from a young age before Kid Champion was born from a frustration with the prescriptive nature of the local musical cliques. As Max says; “There’s only so far you can go in a ‘scene’. People were so narrow-minded. There are unwritten rules as to what you can and can’t wear and how your band should sound if they are going to accept you. That wasn’t for us.”
By embracing their varying musical tastes, the resulting sound – a product of continuing dedication, collaboration and conviction – is forcefully bold, but with an immediately infectious appeal; a new marrying of complex musicianship and pop-heavy hooks laden with honest and heart-strung lyrics about being young, reckless and rough around the edges. First single, “Forgotten What It Feels Like”, is a surging anthem for young lovers, strung up on thick riffs and layered with unforgettable harmonies. The song’s B-Side, “Where Did All The Good Men Go?”, is a heartfelt but furious letter to the scoundrels and liars on every corner.
THE CAPULETS- (10.15-10.45)
Expect surf-rock, summer vibes, dance beats and ska from this five-piece band of brothers from all ends of London. Keep an eye on this page for music, gigs and news. Fuck The Montagues.
THE JUNGLE DOCTORS-(9.30-10)
‘Age shouldn’t matter a jot when it comes to judging the quality of the music a band make. Yet when you learn that a group as confident, captivating and downright fun as Jungle Doctors are all about 18 years old you can’t help but be a little more amazed’
This is what the music blog ‘The Sound of Confusion’ said when hearing new, young and exciting five-piece Indie Pop band Jungle Doctors from Teddington, London’s Debut EP ‘Making Conversation’, check out the full review here:
