Biography


A producer and an illustrator starting a band can only mean trouble, but add unlimited access to a recording studio filled with hand-made gadgets and Swedish cider, and, well, you have Echo Kid.

And as possibly strange as the combination of two deft artistic minds, oodles of sleep deprivation and jolly good times could be, Echo Kid actually turned out stranger. Like that wonderfully weird friend you had as a kid, but don’t see anymore because now he’s just proper weird.

Fun, funny and never far from a sense of madness; Echo Kid are as much about unorthodox sounds as they are about unorthodox songs, and – for their entertainment and the entertainment of others – what happens when you plough the two head-on.

Echo Kid are...
Laurie McCallum and Johnny Foley

Lyrics

Kamikaze Co

Written By: Echo Kid

Lost my soul,
Mr Gucci took control,
information overload,
got the nation comatosed

Blonde Highlight,
honey there's no need to fight,
bad behaviour gets you seen,
blowing up like gasoline.

Get a load of this
Kamikaze kids,
dropping from the grid.

Come sunrise,
I'll be perfect in your eyes.
Moderated anarchy,
kamikaze company.

Get a load of this
Kamikaze kids,
dropping from the grid.

My Heart Guitar

Written By: Echo Kid

My heads having a party
My brains no longer blue
My head don't need a body
Gotta make way for the new rays sunny.

My head's filled up with naughty,
I gotta get overdue,
you can't cane me with candy,
everybody laughs but the jokes not funny.

You fell through, I'm coming after you.
One Day, Without,
You fell through, I'm coming after you.
One Day

My head leaks, outer body,
to get a good look at you,
the weather here's fine and dandy,
low fat, death trap, drink that brother.

You fell through, I'm coming after you.
One Day, Without,
You fell through, I'm coming after you.
One Day

Beggar

Written By: Echo Kid

He prayed for war, a war for one,
He let his mind come all undone you see,
he lost his wife to a garden gnome and now he's on his own
I should know he lent me his tears

He dug a hole, a hole for one,
he filled it in with his acid tongue you see,
he's got a locked jaw, broken door, no phone dial tone love for fear
I should know he lent me his ears

beggar, beggar, beggar (etc.)
of Santa Monica

Got a chrome checkered car.
My blankets made of arse.
Got a concrete yard.
Stick a sparrow in my heart.
