Ed Patrick was a normal young man who lived in Bristol and aspired to be a musician. Until he went to his local car boot sale with a ten pound note and returned with a plastic guitar, a child’s keyboard and a toy tape deck. He put his name into an online anagram generating machine and Kid Carpet was born.
Kid Carpet began making music with old keyboards, toys, computers, a sellotaped up broken electric guitar and a punk rock DIY attitude. Hundreds of gigs got smashed as headline and support to acts like Art Brut, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Electric 6, Willy Mason, Arcade Fire, The Trachtenberg Family Slideshow Players and Presidents Of The United States Of America.
Initially by accident and then later on purpose he started to make theatre for families.
He also also composes music for TV, film, theatre and games, performs in work for others and has presented a TV show for the BBC whilst maintaining a casual approach to performance, work, haircuts and life in general.
