|'Kadesh' are largely a bunch of socially inept twenty-somethings, who to compensate for lack of manners have become very good at playing instruments. Vocalist Ceri Thomas has a penchant for heavy drinking and toilet humour, which tends to be embarrassing for the guys but makes for good song writing material about social dysfunction. Guitarist Richard Long intends to leave a beautiful James Dean style corpse at the tender age of just 25, which by happy accident will make the rest of the band hideously wealthy. Antony Herbert, who plays bass, is most definitely insane and has only narrowly avoided being institutionalised. Matthew Rider hides his deviancy behind the most innocent of eyes and makes brains melt with his guitar riffs. Sam Robson, drum veteran and the newest edition to the band, has fitted in with this bunch of misfits exceedingly well.
Kadesh formed in March 2009 and have a goal to create some music that is both enjoyable and technically demanding, with songs similar in style to the Chili Peppers. Lyrically, the songs are poetic, philosophical and occasionally political. The band are currently working on putting together an album which they hope to complete by the end of the year. Featuring two guitars, bass, drums, vocals and the occassional mandolin part, their debut EP will be released in October.
The band are currently gigging in and around their hometown of Cambridge and played to a packed out Portland Arms at their first headline gig on September 3rd. Entering this year's Exposure Music Awards East and flaunting themselves mercilessly in front of local media, they hope to cause quite a storm on the local circuit.
