Experimental UK Pop-Proggers Kitten Pyramid follow up their recent single “Road Hog,” with new track “Jalapeños,” taken from the Burton-Upon-Trent band’s upcoming album and short film KIDDO, due this year. Written by Milligan, “Jalapeños” is a punky number augmented by a rich, filmic, orchestral arrangement featuring a children’s choir (Kidz R Us choir, Tredegar).

It imagines a future (2050) in which the last remaining meat-eaters are forced underground, to defend themselves from hails of jalapeno bullets from The Vegan Army. As emotions and the imagination run wild, it’s a plea for calmness and rationalism.
KIDDO is also a short film about animal rights, written by Kitten Pyramid mainman Scott Milligan and produced by Static Flow Productions and directed by Brett Chapman and will be released October 01, 2022.
The work has caught the attention of The Vegetarian Society who celebrate their 175th birthday this September and have invited Kitten Pyramid to join in their celebrations.
“Zigging and Zagging through the windmills, running like clowns across a minefield”
“Jalapeños” was co-produced with Nick Brine (Oasis, Stone Roses, Ash, Teenage Fanclub, The Darkness) and Scott Milligan. Original band member Chris Baldwin (also in Paddy Considine’s band Riding the Low) plays guitar on the track alongside long-time Kitten Pyramid collaborator Andrew Griffiths of AGM Productions for orchestration.
