The indie pop band with the most onstage toys in the north east, Kid Samson, have undergone a serious cosmetic change.
Since we last saw the band at this year's Truck Festival, they have seen the departure of three of the founding members, including sisters Wendy & Norman (Norman, a sister?). They've since recruited three new members, including Edible 5ft Smiths' guitarist Jonee. In addition to this, the band have also changed their name to Age Of Jets and are expecting to hit the road in the very near future, so expect to see the new line up in a town near you soon.
As for the planned Kid Samson album, it is still due for release on Damaged Goods, with a single due in January. However, an exact release date is yet to be confirmed.
