Review: Kid Kapichi, Here’s What You Could’ve Won

After a storming success of a debut album, Kid Kapichi return with ‘Here’s What You Could’ve Won’.

Known for their tongue-in-cheek lyrics and blunt commentary on today’s society, the band’s second album delves further into their industrial rock sound, putting into words exactly what we’re all thinking.

The album opens with New England featuring punk newcomer Bob Vylan, a ferocious, factory-like track that you already know is going to go down a frenzy when played live. The band telling people to take off their rose-coloured glasses and wake the fuck up, to drop their patriotic naivety and realise that the government is not on their side.

Another prime example of this is the sarcastic nod to the infamous politicians’ Christmas parties in the song, ‘Party at No.10’, the lyric, “cause it’s one rule for you and another for them”, is particularly poignant.

"They're angry and they want people to know it. "

Something Kid Kapichi has always done well, and especially succeeded at with ‘Here’s What You Could’ve Won’, is the matter-of-fact nature of their songs. With tracks like ‘Rob The Supermarket,’ or “5 days on, 2 days off”, they don’t beat around the bush or attempt to sugarcoat the topics they cover.

They’re angry and they want people to know it.
