‘sharp intelligent lyrics’ - Artrocker

Kid’s Unique bring to you ‘Love Tunnel’, their 2nd single and the follow up to the XFM and Q TV play listed ‘Seymour Evil’. ‘Love Tunnel’ will be released digitally via The Preservation Society Presents on June 11thand sees the group once again spitting riddles and rhymes with dexterity and verve, but this time their tongues are placed firmly in their cheeks.

Kids Unique - Love Tunnel by ThePreservationSociety

‘Love Tunnel’ is a tale of the cocksure naivety of teenage years, when your idea of romance is getting what you can down an alleyway without being caught by an old man walking his dog. ‘Love Tunnel’ might be the new single by an up and coming hip-hop band, but it is unashamedly pop, 3 minutes of hooks and rhymes that in a just world are destined to sound track the festival summer and force their way onto daytime airwaves.

Kids Unique release ‘Love Tunnel’ on June 11th and will support the release with a series of London dates as well as taking one of just 4 spots on the main stage at Rochester Castle in the inaugural year of Music Event One, headlined by the legendary Public Image Limited.

July 28th sees the launch of Music Event One, an exciting new music event to be held in the spectacular grounds of Rochester Castle. Music Event One are proud to announce that this years inaugural event will be headlined by the legendary Public Image Ltd. PiL top a main stage line up that mixes iconic artists with new and up and coming talent, all enclosed by the historic castle walls, in the gaze of it’s magnificent Keep. Joining PiL are heroes of alternative music The Wedding Present, hometown psyche-pop favourites Theatre Royal and hotly tipped alternative hip-hop act Kids Unique.
Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time PiL’s music and vision earned them 5 UK Top 20 Singles (including ‘Public Image’, ‘This Is Not a Love Song’ and ‘Rise’) and 5 UK Top 20 Albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound John Lydon guided the band from their debut album 'First Issue' in 1978 through to 1992’s 'That What Is Not', before a 17 year hiatus.  John then resurrected PiL in 2009 playing live worldwide. Now after 20 years yet another new and unique chapter is set to unfold in the shape of new PiL material as they confirm that their first new album in 20 years ‘This Is PiL’ will be released on May 28th. PiL have seemingly returned as relevant as ever, of a recent live performance The Times commented “This was an evening of uncompromising art music, worthy of the total concentration of the audience.”
Joining PiL on the main stage will be The Wedding Present, one of the most influential and successful of Britain’s truly alternative bands. Led by David Gedge, the bands stubborn refusal to play the record industry’s game has seen them notch up an impressive 18 Top 40 hit singles and a heap of critical praise along the way.  In the words of John Peel “The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Era. You may dispute this, but I’m right and you’re wrong!” In 2012 the band added further to this great canon of songs with the release of acclaimed new album ‘Valentina’.
Taking to the stage before The Wedding Present will be two bands signed to Rochester’s very own independent record label The Preservation Society Presents, Theatre Royal and Kids Unique.  Rochester’s Theatre Royal will release their 2nd album this summer, featuring more music that ‘heads straight for the melodic jugular’ –Artrocker whilst the articulate hip-hip of main stage openers Kids Unique is fast finding fans from XFM to Q TV.
As well as a main stage in the castle grounds, Medway Event One will incorporate a fringe festival of live music in venues throughout Rochester. The fringe will feature a variety of acts both new and established, details of which are soon to be announced.
On July 28th the whole of Rochester will be filled with live music from big named acts to unheralded treasures and getting there could not be easier. Rochester Castle is situated just 5 minutes from two train stations (Strood and Rochester), with high-speed rail services making travel from London and the surrounding area of Kent swift and convenient.
Tickets priced £26 will go on sale May 4th  and will be available through Ticketmaster, the Medway Council Box Office and Rochester Visitors Information Centre. Tickets paid for in cash from Rochester Visitors Information Centre will not be subject to a booking fee.

Singles Club vol.1 - Theatre Royal/Kids Unique

Theatre Royal - Katherine’s Sleeping by ThePreservationSociety
Kids Unique - Seymour Evil by ThePreservationSociety

        Theatre Royal – ‘Katherine’s Sleeping’ / Kids Unique – ‘Seymour Evil’

                               AA-side Split 7” Vinyl- LTD 250 copies

27th February 2012

This February sees the launch of a new monthly 7” vinyl singles club by Rochester based independent label The Preservation Society Presents. Each month two artists will showcase exclusive recordings on a soon to be very collectable split 7” vinyl, limited to just 250 copies. Possibly uniquely for any record label in the UK, each vinyl is cut in real time on the record companies premises and then hand stamped by the bands.

To kick off this exciting series of releases are two very different artists, psyche-pop four piece Theatre Royal (‘head for the melodic jugular’- Artrocker) and lyrical hip hop quartet Kids Unique. Separated at birth by genre, both artists are brought together on this exclusive vinyl only release by a shared world-view, one that places an emphasis on hooks and melody, no matter what form the back beat takes.

‘Katherine’s Sleeping’ is the first new material in 2012 from Medway’s Theatre Royal. This cold slab of alternative, guitar-driven pop will be an exclusive vinyl only pre-cursor to a slew of brand new singles and a 2nd album to be released later this year. The other half of this idiosyncratic split 7” release is ‘Seymour Evil’ (John Kennedy’s ‘Hot One’ XFM) the debut single from hotly tipped hip-hop outfit Kids Unique, taken from their debut album ‘assortments’. Whilst ‘Seymour Evil’ is casually confrontational and charmingly cock-sure, ‘Katherine’s Sleeping’ is alienation and confusion rising to a quietly anthemic chorus. The release will be supported by both acts playing a string of co-headlining dates across the South East.

February 23rd - Margate, The Bracket

February 24th - Rochester, The Nags Head *Theatre Royal only

February 25th - Folkestone, The Bar Below

February 28th - London, The Buffalo Bar

         ‘Seymour Evil’ – digital download single

 19th March 2012

This March 19th Kids Unique introduce themselves to the World with debut single ‘Seymour Evil’. This infectious pop song by Medway’s only hip-hop quartet is the first to be taken from their debut album ‘assortments’. Full of casual English bravado and effortless lyrical flow, ‘Seymour Evil’ is to be released digitally on Rochester based label The Preservation Society Presents.

Kids Unique are rapper Adam Tilley backed by a live band consisting of Daniel Lawrence (guitar, samples and keys), Andy Wilson (bass/vocals) and Nathan Coombs (drums). Kids Unique may be born from the world of bedroom production, yet unlike many of their peers they are equally at home on the live stage, with funk rhythms and pulsating bass lines under pinning what is fast becoming a visceral live experience. One that will see the group play Ibiza Rocks this summer.

Already receiving heavy rotation on Tuune TV and with support from grass roots radio, ‘Seymour Evil’ sees Kids Unique in a cocksure mood. This is a bold brash slab of self-proclamation, but Kids Unique particular brand of hip-hop is also an articulate one, combining darkly comic observations and absurdist tales set to a pallet of charming lo-fi aesthetics, sharp lyrical skills and pop hooks.

Debut album ‘assortments’ is already available via digital download and a now sold out ltd edition CD which is already treasured by those in the know and lucky enough to pick up a copy upon its’ initial release low-key release. 

'Seymour Evil' has just been added to the XFM evening playlist.
