Rocket Ship by Red Kid

"...a cracking tune that never lets up in pace. The band are renowned for their frantic delivery and chaotic shows – they have succeeded in capturing some of that energy on record. Singer Ronan Turner delivers some nice’n’sleazy CBGBs vocal creating, with some help from the other boys, a chorus that will stay in your mind for weeks.”" - Roisin

"Red Kid"

Rocket Ship, fucking storms a path between the Sex Pistols and the Beach Boys and is totally fucking ace, obviously. The second flipper is also ace, being a jaunty, Blur-ish on the meths with The Small Faces, excellent stuff. These people are brilliant, love them alot and then love them some more! - Unpeeled Magazine

"Rocket Ship" LP 2008



Following their successful appearances at the major Irish festivals - Electric Picnic, Castle Palooza, After Life...ect. Red Kid have announced the release of their debut album on 08.08.08.

2008 was the most successful year to date for the band. They began the year with a Balcony TV nomination for best band and continued swiftly with the release of Rocket Ship to critical acclaim. Subsequently this high octane song was included on the soundtracks for two surfing documentaries over the summer. The band have also had a further two tracks used on large TV advertising campaigns – exposing them to a wider audience.

With 60+ gigs under their belt last year, Red Kid’s live shows have been described as “legendary” and “effortlessly swinging from rock to pop to punk”. “Soup”, the bands second single from their debut album “Rocket Ship” is due for release in July. Recorded in the legendary Pulse recording studios, which has previously occupied artists such as Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Brian Adams and Bon Jovi. “Nobody Told Me” comes from a collective love of The Beatles, The Strokes, The Rolling Stones, Talking Heads and The Velvet Underground to name but a few.
