Brilliant indie/pop from Edinburgh....................

Some nice words about Kid Canaveral:

"Juicy, chewy pop-kids to savour, proving that life still twitches in this indie guitar-pop business." Paul Whitelaw, The Scotsman

"Its amazing how even their brand new pop-punk songs embed themselves in the brain, while single Smash Hits could easily be just that." The List

"Evocative lyrics, super indie guitars and some striking girl/guy vocal dynamics, 'the Kids really are alright" Jock Rock

"Kid Canaverals David MacGregor laments some poor bastards plight over this considered piece of up-tempo indie pop which echoes the Delgados at their most playful. Smash Hits is a refreshingly pleasant wee tune 4/5" - The Skinny

"Kid Canaverals debut single, Smash Hits, is the kind of joyous buzzsaw racket thats so simple and so very effective you wonder why people dont make it more often...They sound like theyre armed with the knowledge that music peaked in 1976 with the first Ramones album (although the Shop Assistants were pretty good) and consequently Smash Hits is the kind of dumb punk pop that so very few get right. Fewer still get it as right as this. Go and listen to them" - Fire Escape Talking

"Bouncy, quirky, often laugh-out-loud funny, 'Smash Hits' has, well smash hit written all over it. Plus it includes the line "stick it up your arse/I don't care if you think my music taste's shite". What more could you ask for? 4/5" Is This Music?

"a joyous, bouncy piece of classic Scottish indie-pop...an engaging, humorous story punchily delivered by an irrepressible wee tune." - Song, by Toad

"Their charisma lies in their self-consciousness...Kid Canaveral are a bit like The Breeders arguing about relationships with REM at a coffee morning organised by The Undertones. In other words, the kids are all right." - Barry Gordon, The Scotsman

"Superb...Kid Canaveral threatened to upstage the headliners - and possibly did in the eyes of many people. Current single Smash Hits is typical of their trademark sound - melodic and radio-friendly. There is no attempt to dilute the Scottish accent which distinguishes them from the plethora of bands accentuating South of England accents at the moment, and I would be surprised if we do not hear a lot more of this two boy/two girl combination in 2008." - Artrocker Magazine

"Bouncing in on as much adequately turbulent lo-fi charm as ever, Kid Canaveral's latest single sees the Edinburgh foursome doing what they do best; wrapping their tales of social strife in more hooks than John Prescott at an egg farm....eight minutes of spiky-pop brilliance makes up these two tracks...adds to their unmistakably ace army of tunes. - Is This Music?, 4/5 (Couldn't Dance/TFS Single Review)"

"Next up is one of Scotland's best new bands Kid Canaveral, who had already won us over with dynamite pop nuggets 'Smash Hits' and 'Couldn't Dance'. Their new AA side single however sees the taking in Grrrl Group femme-pop ('Second Time Around') and yet another super-catchy dose of Scotia indie with 'Missing Me'." - Clash Magazine

One local support to be announced....

Tickets will be onsale very soon from Ticketweb at the awesome pre-sale price of 4.

For those living elsewhere, you can catch Kid Canaveral on tour in Edinburgh on 20th March, and in Glasgow on 27th March.

Cheers :up:

It'll be better than watching Scotland getting creamed by Holland. Because let's face it, anything is better than that.

Well, almost.

Fucksake Phil, shut up. I was hoping that nobody had noticed Scotland are playing on Saturday night.

Holland v Scotland has been moved to Sunday evening ;)
