This Is The Kit
This Is The Kit is the musical project of Kate Stables. 2010 sees the release of Wriggle Out The Restless, their second album and their first with Dreamboat. In 2005 Rob da bank’s Sunday Best label released a 7” single “Two Wooden Spoons” which was followed by the band’s first full length, Krulle Bol produced by John Parish, released on the the French label Microbe in 2008. More recently there have been collaborations leading to the single of “White Ash Cut and Vitamins” on cassette and a split 7” with the Belgian band Soy Un Caballo.
Live, This Is The Kit constantly impress. Low-key busking sessions have been interspersed by gigs with Vetiver, The National, Elysian Fields, Jeffrey Lewis, and Jose Gonzales. Under their own steam and often joined by long term collaborator Jesse Vernon they have played tiny village halls to the Acoustic stage at Glastonbury Festival.
Kate sings and plays guitar, banjo, trumpet, and percussion. Her long-time collaborator and regular live companion Jesse Vernon produced the album and contributes guitars, violin and percussion.
