Kid Karate are a duo from Dublin whose distinctive guitar riffs and aggressive drum beats have helped to craft their sound and see them described as a “trashy, dancey duo” that “make more noise than a two-piece should”.
Comprising of Kevin Breen on guitar/synth/vocals, and Steven Gannon on drums, Kid Karate play fast, trashy music with a punk spirit that make you want to dance, jump around and have a good fucking time.
Since their debut gig in October ’09, a string of triumphant live performances has seen the duo carve a name for themselves as one new band to look out for on the Dublin gigging circuit.
Having already played gigs in Whelans, The Button Factory and Crawdaddy, to name but a few, 2010 will see Kid Karate release their debut EP as well as continue their relentless noise-making in venues around the city and beyond.
The mathematical equation for Kid Karate is;
Two Lads from Dublin + Synth + Guitar + Drums + Sweet Dance Moves = Kid Karate
