Bandicoot present ‘Simple Kid’ simply Ciaran McFeely (ex V-Necks / Young Offenders) originally from Cork but now based in London. The moniker won't fit when he's 38, but it suits his debut batch of elementary, hummable songs, like The La's sparring with The Beta Band while Marc Bolan looks on. Throughout, he hymns a meaningless modern world, struck by the false promises of the 60's. "Simple Kid 1" is the debut album (on 2M Recordings). Produced and mixed by the Kid, the album retains the rough edge of early Fierce Panda EPs but now with an added punch via Steve Fitzmaurice (Depeche Mode mixer) ... which means an album that contains 4 tracks from early days has a new and bigger feel to it.
