This Is The Kit is a Bristol and Paris based band formed by Kate Stables.
In 2006 Rob Da Bank's record label Sunday Best included This Is The Kit's track Two Wooden Spoons in their Folk Off compilation along side artists including Animal Collective, Tunng and Vashti Bunyan. The band's inclusion in the compilation received high praise from Drowned in Sound who said "its personal touch is largely what makes This Is The Kit the British highlight, not to mention that of the compilation as a whole". Following that Sunday Best went on to release Two Wooden Spoons as a 7" single with the B side Come a Cropper in 2006.
This Is The Kit's first album album release (Krulle Bol, Microbe 2008) was produced by John Parish in Bristol with guest musicians performing on various instruments.
Their most recent album, Wriggle Out The Restless was released by Dreamboat Records in 2010. The album was gestated over a long period and drew on This Is The Kit's many musical friends including Rozi Plain, Jim Barr (bass player from Portishead), Francois and the Atlas Mountains and The Liftmen. The album was produced by long time collaborator and partner Jesse D Vernon.
