Free Music Week: Guest Post: Steven Gannon (Kid Karate)
I’ve decided to write about Coolrunnings as they are one of the first bands I came across that were giving away their music for free when I discovered Band Camp a while back.
Coolrunnings are six friends from Knoxville, Tennessee who make fun, surfy, pop music about fucking up repeatedly with girls, taking their revenge in song form.
Coolrunnings are signed to Arcade Sound, home of such artists as Blackbird Blackbird, Memoryhouse and Millionyoung. They have so far given away two EPs and a single as free downloads via their bandcamp page. Finally, they claim to have never seen the movie of the same name*.
Steven Gannon is the drummer in Dublin band Kid Karate. They are currently working away on their debut EP and are playing Hard Working Class Heroes in October. You can download some of their music at http://kidkarate.bandcamp.com/.
