Vic Llewellyn



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.

A bunch of EP’s and albums popped out:

Roll On The Carpet (2003), Shit Dope (2003), Ideas & Oh Dears (2005), The Kids Back (2007), Casio Royale (2008), The Advert Break (2010), Songs From Repo Chick (2011).

Kid carpet started to make theatre for families. Initially by accident and then later on purpose.

Kid Carpet & The Noisy Animals (2012), Blast Off! (2013) and Kid Carpet & The Noisy Neighbours (2015) have now been followed by Noisy Nativity, a completely bonkers family Christmas show and third instalment of the Noisy Animals saga which played at The Tobacco Factory Brewery Theatre in Bristol throughout December and into January 2016.
