Kid Carpet Biography May 2013
Kid Carpet uses Casio keyboards, cardboard, sellotape and shouting to make peculiar punk folk disco music.
After releasing three albums and performing both nationally and internationally Kid Carpet has begun making theatre, composing music for others and has also presented a television programme for the BBC.
A champion of the lost and broken, Kid Carpet likes to use found sounds and objects which have been left behind by popular culture and attempts to turn them into superheros, repackaging them so that their simple beauty and innocence can be rediscovered.
Blast Off! (autumn 2013) will be Kid Carpet’s second theatre show for children and families.
Kid Carpet & The Noisy Animals has toured comprehensively since spring 2012 and involves video projection, a live rock gig and a stage invasion/dance contest.
Kid Carpet also composes music for theatre, television and films. Clients include BBC2, Alex Cox, 8 Minutes Idle (feature film) and Tobacco Factory Theatre Bristol.
Further theatre and musical productions are currently in various stages of development.
