    Pencils Not Pistols is the brand new E.P. from UK duo Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K. This unlikely duo linked up in late 2012 after Imperial (now affectionately known as Big Dave because of his mighty 6’4’’ frame) sent K.I.N.E.T.I.K. (who has yet to be blessed with ANOTHER alias) a polite email requesting to collaborate. After being impressed with the spelling, grammar and attached beat in the email, K.I.N.E.T.I.K. jumped at the chance to work on some music with this courteous chap. What initially began as a track for Imperial’s yet to be released solo album, slowly morphed into a collaborative project, which once again utilizes the tried and tested formula of one producer and one emcee. Following copious amounts of parma ham and pavlova, the two discovered that they not only share a similar outlook on music but on life itself. This mutual foresight enabled them to craft seven interlinked songs that all touch on different subjects in an honest yet humorous manner. Most importantly, the project reinforces the divine duality of the human experience, even in the midst of the laughs and giggles contained throughout.

    The sample-based production on Pencils Not Pistols united both Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K. in their love for that strong tradition in Hip Hop. The duo pay homage with their artwork; as it is a parody of Biz Markie’s album, I Need A Haircut. As you might know, that was the album that changed music sampling law forever. Gilbert O’Sullivan… we see you. Sigh.

    Future plans include a limited edition album of Pencils Not Pistols on vinyl with official merchandise. All funding will be generated by fan support.

    In closing, if Bill & Ted canceled a few excellent adventures and decided to make a Hip Hop project; then it would probably sound like this... Put your pencils in the air.
