Kid Harpoon

The First EP

Kid Harpoon

If you’re one of the not-inconsiderable constituency of people who can’t look at Jack Peñate without doing a very silly dance, you might want to avoid Kid Harpoon. Coming on like Dexys Midnight Runners, only with their urgent passions replaced by a faintly idiotic whimsy, ‘The Milkmaid’ is a galloping, violin-strewn tale of a young lass who wants to become a famous actress, or something. It romps along with such unquenchable gumption that you find yourself quietly wishing it would perhaps trip on the curb it skips up and faceplant on to the pavement.
