Ceyote

It’s Monday, so we thought we’d brighten up the start of your week with a new local video.

Ceyote are one of our favourite young local bands. But unfortunately they have yet to release any ‘proper’ recordings, just demo’s.

Thankfully though a live video has now been made of one of their tracks, ‘Sun’, which is a good substitute for now and does give a decent indication of what Ceyote sound like.

‘Sun’ was recorded during a recent London gig by the band, at The Black Heart in Camden.

If you liked that, you can find out more about Ceyote via their Facebook page at:

Now you can get on with the rest of your week.

From Hastings To The World

One of the aims of Pierless Music has always been to see original local bands make that transition from being a local band, to being one that spreads its wings and starts to play outside of the area. Even if that means not playing locally as much anymore.

As if to emphasise this the Pierless Music slogan is ‘From Hastings to the World’. Hence the title of this particular post.

Well, three of our younger Hastings based bands are now doing just that.

Hornet, Maid Of Ace and The Kid Kapichi have progressed far enough for them to now be headlining London gigs. That can only be good news.

Recently, Hornet headlined the O2 Academy 2 in Islington.

On September 27th The Kid Kapichi are returning to headline the Barfly in Camden.

And on the following day Maid Of Ace are headlining the Black Heart venue, also in Camden.

This is of course no guarantee of any future success. But it does at least show that all three bands are both good enough to hold their own in London and that they all have the ambition and drive to move forward.

Let’s hope that Hornet, The Kid Kapichi and Maid Of Ace will be just the first three of many more local bands that make that transition. I know that there are already at least a couple more bands waiting in the wings to do just that.

London first, next stop the rest of the world?

The Kid Kapichi go to London….

…. and you can come too.

In a recent post, all about 2013: http://pierlessmusic.co.uk/2013/, we talked about how there was a sense of some momentum building with regard to original local music from Hastings.

One aspect of this was the expected wider exposure that some of our local bands would be getting in 2013. Well, one of those bands are The Kid Kapichi.

The Kid Kapichi self released their debut album, ‘Gin & Chronic’, in August of 2012. You can read a review of the album here:

You can listen to 4 tracks from ‘Gin & Chronic’ here: https://soundcloud.com/thekidkapichi

Since that release the band have completed a short UK tour and have also played a blinding set at the Camden Barfly in November, as well as some very well received local gigs.

On Saturday, 12th January The Kid Kapichi are back in London playing a headline show at the Hoxton Underbelly club, a show booked off the back of that aforementioned Camden Barfly gig.

To enable local fans to go and support the band in London, they have arranged a coach to take you there and they’ll even bring you back too.

Details are as follows.
The coach leaves The Tubman pub, in Cambridge Road, at 6pm on 12th January. The coach fare is £10 per person.
It will return after the gig, leaving London at around 1am.

Entry to the gig is £5. But, if you get your name on the bands list by the 11th January it will only cost you £4.

The Kid Kapichi are due on stage at 10.30pm.

If you want a seat on the coach, contact Jack on: 07414 440408 or let the band know via their Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/TheKidKapichi

If it’s anything like the Camden Barfly gig, it promises to be a great evening and well worth making the effort to get there.

If you can’t make that gig, or if you live further afield, The Kid Kapichi are playing two gigs in Liverpool on the following weekend.
Friday, 18th January – The Zanzibar Club, Liverpool (This gig has now been cancelled)
Saturday, 19th January – Lomax, Liverpool

PS: Disclosure time:
Myself and Rich must declare an interest here, as we both have a connection with The Kid Kapichi and have been doing some work with them recently.                                          Mind you, that’s because we both know that they are very worthy of the attention and deserve to go far.                                                                                                               In fact you will find us both at the Hoxton Underbelly gig and also in Liverpool.

See you there?
