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.

         ‘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.
