A check on the BBC website reveals 20 plays in recent times for Big Boss Man songs and a glance at their Publishers Statement shows that Big Boss Man music has been broadcasted in film and TV in dozens of countries worldwide. Recent highlights include NYE at the Sage, Gateshead with Vintage Trouble, the Cult music Festival, Cosmic Trip, in Bourge, France, Germany’s 2 Men From L.I.N.Z Weekender, Looe Festival In Cornwall and the award winning Good Life Experience, Previously BBM have: recorded 4 albums for Blow Up Records, toured Spain 8 times, taken a mini- tour of Russian Tinkoff Brewery Bars, provided the sound track to a Mighty Boosh film, (Sweet) remixed a Paul Weller single , had their debut 7” single Sea Groove sampled by the Thievery Corporation (the numbers game) played live sessions and Latitude Festival for Mark Lamar , live session for Cerys Mathews and even remixed a German 70s kids programme theme tune!

Kid Carpet @ Arlington Arts
Feb 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Kid Carpet and the Noisy Animals present…

Noisy Holiday

The Noisy Animals are looking forward to their dream holidays and have some brilliant ideas about where in the world they want to go. Kid Carpet just wants them all to be together but will he be able to keep everyone happy when he can’t even get them in the car?

This lively show contains a mix of live music, theatre, comedy, puppetry and animation. Hot new tracks from Kid Carpet include; “Rollercoaster”, “Swimming with the Fishes” and “Get in the Car”.

A ridiculous and funny story of going on your holidays with silliness and mischief for the whole family. Expect flying tents, diving bears, massive carrots and Ibiza anthems.

Ed Patrick (aka Kid Carpet), is a Bristol-based maker of nonsense music and rock’n’roll theatre shows. Noisy Holiday is the fourth instalment of the Noisy Animals adventure, they’ve had a dance contest, they’ve been to space, they’ve caused bedlam in Bethlehem now it’s time for a nice relaxing holiday…
