Kid Acne will return with more rap science with the magnificent 'Worst Luck EP' on June 18th on Lex/EMI Records, another taster from Kid Acne's forthcoming album 'Romance Ain't Dead' which follows later this summer. 'Worst Luck' showcases Kid Acne at his lyrical and satirical finest and comes backed with two new bangers 'Swear Down' & 'Split Heads Split Arses'.
Kid Acne drops raps like a stink bomb on the bus as it pulls up at the traffic lights. The MC, graffiti writer and out-n-out chatty bastard first appeared on the Lex radar as an illustrator, designing flyers for local club nights and sleeve artwork for Warp's electronic pioneers, Plaid. Rolling dues-deep with fellow graffiti veteran, Req One - the duo subsequently featured on the 2001 Lexoleum compilation with a raw, lo-fi offering, Rap Dracula.
Continuing the partnership, with Req handling nocturnal-beat-programming and Kid Acne (AKA Ackers, Ken Acid, Kidney Ache) taking care of microphone-grappling and wobble-gob duties, the next few years saw a string of releases on Acne's own Invisible Spies imprint such as Council Pop (2003), Reality Raps (2004) and various 7"s & long players with in-house collective, Toah Dynamic (featuring a rabble of cohorts including Chips for the Poor, Supreme Vagabond Craftsman & Earl Shilton).
'Worst Luck' is released on June 18th 2007 on Lex / EMI.
